I am trying to digitize old VHS tapes and have been following the instructions at (in German) https://gleitz.info/forum/index.php?thread/47572-tutorial-hochwertiges-digitalisieren-...en-und-andere/
Recording of the videos in VirtualDub works find and I have the videos losslessly compressed (using either UtVideo YUV422 BT.601 and Lagarith). These files look and play fine in VLC. Color depth is YUY2 (4:2:2).
The problems are in the final step, which is converting the videos to h.264 using XMedia Recode 188.8.131.52.
The output videos have colorful stripes all across the video. This does seem to depend on the input codec, if I use other files (e.g. MPEG4, h264 etc) this does not occur. It only occurs with the lossless formats.
I have also tried to convert the format to YV12 4:2:0 planar in VirtualDub first and then use XMedia Recode, as YUV 4:2:0 planar seems to be the only color format that is available in XMedia. But the issue is the same.
The issue seems to be how the input video is decompressed. Even if I choose UtVideo in XMedia the stripes appear.
