    is there a way to set up CapDVHS so that the final file is imediately recognizable by Quick Time. I must end up with a *.MOV file so that I can import it into a special application that will only accept Qick Time files of the *.MOV format.

    I'm trying to avoid having to convert the *.mpg file into *.mov, which is what I've been doing so far.

  2. IIRC there is no way to change the way the files are transferred, a conversion would be necessary. Never actually used the app but researched it a lot over at AVSForum.

    CapDVHS will cap the MPeg2 TS stream to a m2t file. You can demux to elementary MPeg2+AC3 streams, then rewrap in whatever container you want without recode.

    sorry brother, but you're a bit over my head on demux and rewrap. I never heard those terms. How do I do that?

    MPeg2 transport stream
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/MPEG_transport_stream

    A Comcast box IEEE-1394 transport stream contains only one video and one audio (usually AC3). These are shown in this program. This is a Leno show capture. Output of this program will be unpacketized MPeg2+AC3. From there you can use Quicktime for Windows Pro.

    HDTV2MPEG2 also allows editing out commercials with I frame cuts.

    Alternate program for demux is tsmuxer.

    You could try MPEGStreamclip. The author's website has good documentation for the program's features.

    MPEGStreamclip can convert MPEG2 ts files to a codec normally used for the .mov container, but I can't tell you what parameters or codec to use. I don't work with Quicktime video.

    I forgot Mpeg Streamclip was available for Windows. It may do the direct container conversion without recode.

    My mistake. MPEGStreamclip won't simply re-wrap MPEG2 in a .mov container. It will only convert to a different codec for .mov.

    It can demultiplex standard definition MPEG2 into separate video and audio files. However, the only containers it permits for exporting MPEG2 as MPEG2 with audio and video combined in one file are .mpg or .ts.
