  1. I am attempting to re-encode a DVD that is roughly 7gig to fit a 4.5gig DVD-R. I am using ffmpegX. I keep getting the same error when setting it up.

    I use the "low-bitrate DVD (NTSC)" setting and I keep getting the following error:

    usage: movtoy4m -w width -h height -F a:b -a a:b [-s] [-o ppm/y4m] movie.mov

    example: movtoy4m -w 352 -h 288 -F 25:1 -a 4:3 pal_normal.mov
    example: movtoy4m -w 352 -h 240 -F 30000:1001 -a 16:9 ntsc_wide.mov

    I am left with a file with .mp2 appended to it, even though I have chosen .ac3 as the Audio format. It loks like the video is failing completely and it goes on to the audio. I used DVD Backup to extract the DVD and am using the VOBs it extracted.

    Any ideas?

  2. You're probably encoding with "QT decode" option set, and without having installed the Quicktime mpeg-2 player component, which is required for this option to work with mpeg-2 input.

    I see. I saw that being checked but had no idea what it was so I left it. What does having the QT mpeg-2 component buy me? Or is it best to just uncheck it?


    Thanks for the info,

  4. If you're encoding PAL material you probably don't need "QT decode" enabled. If you're encoding NTSC, you could need either "mplayer decode" or "QT decode" to keep sound sync, and "QT decode" is faster.
