  1. I have not been able to find an MPEG-1 or MPEG-2 real time CODEC. I was wondering if anyone knows of good ones. I know it must be possible to do since the Win-VCR program creates real time MPEG-1 files on a Pentium 300 and has an option for doing MPEG-2.

    Also, is the video quality of MPEG-1 and MPEG-2 superior to that of MPEG-4 formats?

    Thanks for any help.

  2. I go for quality and anything that encodes in realtime cannot use multipass and you would need a hell of alot more than 300 mhz for good quality.
    I have 1200 mhz t-bird and I'm still far from realtime in rempeg or tmpegenc.

    I suggest capture to some lossless format and reencode and take the time it takes!

  3. Hello Brutal,

    When archiving home videos and such that is exactly what I do, but the purpose for wanting the real time MPEG is for building a digital video recorder. This would mean if I recorded 2 hours of video a day, the machine would be inaccessible for recording more for 4 or more hours a day while it encoded.
