Video encoding

Q: Video encoding

I have an ACER T35(don't laugh at the back there) which I use to burn my holiday dvd's.I use ULEAD 9 Video s/w. AMD Athlon XP 3000 (1.8mhz) 1.5 gig Ram.
When burning , from start to finish, it equates to approx 4 hours processing time for 1 hours video. My original files are MPEG4 which have to be encoded etc.

Is this an acceptable time frame??. I do not have problems with time per se, I just use my other PC for browsing in the interim.

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

I am recording video to be played live on the web. I also want to archive it to be put in podcasts. Apple's Quicktime says that OS X is needed to encode into a quicktime format, so what do most people use to do this?

Hello, I have been getting BSODs quite frequently when I'm trying to encode video. Since this is a very cpu intensive process I assumed it was due to my overclock. I went back to stock on my processor, and I am still seeing these errors no matter what program I'm using to encode. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Hey guys,
Well I've begun video encoding and heavy use of my new TDK 8x DVD+-RW Drive...however I am finding out quickly, even with 768mb of DDR my 1800+ is slow as anything when it comes to video encoding, especially when its an hour and a half of basketball games..It takes many many hours to encode..So if you could all help me in choosing a new mobo and processor, I'd really appreciate it

I've heard P4's are better for video AMD or Intel, I'm not biased...

I'd like to stay sub $300 if possible:grinthumb

Current Specs:
Athlon XP 1800+
K7S5A Mobo
786mb PC2700(running at PC2100 speeds)
Ati AIW Radeon 9600
SB Audigy Gamer
400w Antec PSU
XP Home

A:New Processor for Video encoding....

I personally prefer the AMD 64 platform, however according to Anandtech, the P4's got the encoding crown.

And according to, to stay under your $300 limit would probably stick you with a P4 3.2 800mhz and any supporting mobo thats around $115, like the ASUS P4P800

A:Re Nero - Encoding Video ?

This happens when you are transferring .avi files to a CD/DVD. It needs to encode the sound/video to it will be able to play on a DVD. It takes about a good hour. Doesn't happen with mpg though. Not sure why. I guess they are already encoded.

Hi all,
it's a very annoying problem, i hope somebody could help.
I do video encoding for a long time, this means for me capture video from my camcorder in DV format, edit and compress with DivX. Last step usualy is performed in VirtualDub.
Now the problem: the Select video compression dialog is empty (just the uncompressed line is there). I have all codecs installed, and it's worked some days before. It happened once and I did not find any solutuion but reinstall Windows, now the same again (in SP1 this time).
So, the codecs are installed (I can watch movies) but the encoder apps can't see any. What could be done - repetead reinstalls not an option.
This never happened on any other Windows.

I am an avid windows user not a pro for years My only question isn t that odd involves video encoding for years I wondered why movie maker had such conservative settings even when there are standard definition videos recording at mbit lucky me I have a panasonic that does so for my x TV Anyway my vids Encoding Video vista and are junk I got a new hd card capable of bigger vids than mine avivo helping things along and an external editor called ulead video studio god forbid windows has to do anything with it I want to upgrade for dx and the next level of goofy graphic things I never know the name of basically for pixel shader four Video Encoding and vista and my vid card is already capable Do I need premium vista as that is the one that claims to do HD encoding in movie maker I am certain it goes beyong movie maker but for programs that use windows media encoding as well given windows track record Before I spend too much could someone inform me I only learned recently that the hd is a world seperated from regular windows I have Video Encoding and vista always run and it has been a bad time I am assuming for now premium vista is a must do and can I upgrade my upgrade retail xp ugrade edition for the upgrade nbsp

A:Video Encoding and vista

I'm not sure of the full intent of your post but some things; dx10, any direct X layer has always been aimed at graphics display where games are concerned when it comes to the "fancy" stuff.

HD video is much more ubiquitous than that, relying on codecs, horsepower and capacity. In other words I can encode any HD video on Vista or XP (or other OSs) as long as I have the right program that can decode and encode in HD, have a video card with at least 256 mb of memory (512 is better), a processor fast enough not to take an unreasonable amount of time in making editing changes or encoding, and a very generous amount of free hard drive space.

Personally I work with Hi Def on an old Athlon 3800+ system with 2 gigs of memory running XP pro with a squeak-by 256 meg memory video card. Studio 11 is the program that I use for the HD processing.

As you may know from the specs above, working with HD is dead dog slow and the only reason I would go to a system with Vista is if it came with the sweet quad core processor, 512 mb video card...etc...for the power and capacity, not for Vista or for any special features that the OS or hardware might otherwise have for other purposes.

I wouldn't trust Windows Movie Maker to be competent working with any HD in any version since its never been a reliable or robust program.

I have been trying to create a DVD-Video using Nero software. This has caused blue screens multiple times tonight. The encoding will work for maybe a third of the video then the PC crashes. The BSOD's have different headings, one mentioned a hardware error and another said that a driver had overran a stack-based buffer.

I have had BSOD's in the past, generally while playing computer games and found that disabling my virtual memory stopped this problem, due to this the first BSOD errors are not recorded.

A:BSOD's Encoding DVD-Video

One very important info is missing here .... have you enabled the Driver verifier yourself? And is it crashing the same way even without driver verifier? Cannot have the answer from the data, as there are two crash dumps and both are DV enabled.

What is catching the attention that there are two consecutive crash dumps with totally two different nature. One indicates to a hardware failure, and the other indicates to either a failing device driver or a malware. Now let us have a look at your files.

Daemon Tools, Alcohol 120% and Power Archiver Pro uses SCSI Pass Through Direct (SPTD), which is a well known BSOD causer. Uninstall Daemon Tools at first. Then download SPTD standalone installer from, and execute the downloaded file as guided below :
Double click to open it.
Click this button only:

If it is grayed out, as in the picture, there is no more SPTD in your system, and you just close the window.
Next, scan the system for possible virus infection with the following programs.
Anti-rootkit utility TDSSKiller

A:fastest hd configuration for video encoding

Since video encoding is going to be sufficiently compute intensive to swamp any disk transfer speed, I'm not sure this is where I'd be spending my performance dollars for this task.

I'd just use the two Raptor drives, since they'll be far faster than any video encoding on a desktop. Of course, I'll bet no difference in performance will be seen with any of these options, due to my first statement.

The Phenom II X4 940 is the best choice IMO.

And yes, I think AM2\AM2+ coolers will work on an AM3 CPU. Not sure, but since the slots are physically identical (aside from having a different number of pins), any AM2 cooler should work.

I have a number of video files on my computer that my brother wants me to put on a DVD for him. However, I have just discovered how long it takes to encode video, especially on this old computer. So, I've decided that I could simply try to leave my computer on all night while it does the encoding. I was just wondering though, if having any other programs running at the same time could interfere with the encoding process (i.e. downloading automatic updates for windows or antivirus program, antivirus scan, ad-aware, spybot)? I thought perhaps I could kill two birds with one stone if I scheduled some maintainence tasks at the same time. Is this stupid? Would it simply make the encoding go slower, or could it potential cause errors that would eventually show up on the finished DVD?

A:Solved: Other programs running while encoding video?

I wouldn't recommend running updates etc during the encoding process. In fact, I would turn off anything that was eating resources.

Hi my name is Larry. I've been trying to burn some videos on to DVDs using pinnacle but lately its not been working too great. when in the process of encoding the video it gets to end of last video and stops and does not start the burn process some times it only gets half way through the last video before stopping. Sometimes when this happens I close the program and open it up again and it starts burning to the DVD without trying encode the video again It .only burns the part of video it got done so if it did not get to the end of the video before stopping it waists the Blank DVD. Sometimes opening and closing the program does not even help. What should I do?

A:pinnacle studio 11 freezes encoding video

See if you can just make the image and save to disk, without burning it to DVD.
I have 14 so the setting may differ but when you go to make the movie and click on, or already have it on disc, click on settings... and under burn options choose Create disc content but don't burn. Also right next to that if you have a media type option, set it from Video_TS folder to ISO file.

Then see if the project will finish encoding. You won't get a DVD right away but you can then tell if the problem is with the encoding/production or if its with the burning process.

If you get a successful ISO image then you can install ImgBurn or use another image burning program if you already have one to burn the ISO image to the DVD.

Both 11 and 12 had some problems when it came to burning DVDs directly, I think it was 12 that needed an update or the audio didn't come through.

That should give you a better idea of at least where the problem lies and allow you to stop making coasters.

Also make sure there is plenty of room on the hard drive wherever the file is being saved to.

Hi Zoloft,

try AutoGK with ffmpeg codecs, play around with it and read some guides and you will find its hidden features (it does everytype of encoding too)

Hey guys,

I've been shopping around for a decent video editing program that I can use in OSX as a one-stop-shop to merge & encode multiple clips recorded with Fraps. I've tried several different applications, but, most of the time, either the product is too expensive (>$100) or doesn't support the .avi extension on OSX. Ideally, I'm looking for something under $50 that will enable me to merge around 16 raw .avi clips into a single encoded video about 4 to 5 hours in length. Over the past month I've been using iSkysoft's Video Converter for Mac and Deluxe Media Converter trials. They work well enough, but they have a tendency to hang/crash on me following large tasks, so I've decided to hold off on purchasing a licence for a little while and, instead, tap you guys for a little information first.

I'm looking for an aac+ encoder? I've recently seen people encoding in aac at around 48kbps and having it sound pretty much 128kbps, this is for a sound broadcast and would be delivered through an intergrated flash player.

I'm pretty new to the encoder so anything related to it which would help me would be most useful.

Thank you!

I've recently started using Opera instead of IE at the recommendation of a friend, and I'm mostly happy that I changed.

Thing is, now that I'm using it, the text on the boards I frequent don't always look right.

It's mainly apostrophes and ellipses that are the problem, and as the main forum I use is a role-playing one, a lot of "I'm" type words are used and it's annoying that this keeps happening. Changing the encoding doesn't seem to work either.

What's happening?

In a slightly non-related question... text enclosed in the glow tags doesn't glow on Opera (or Firefox apparantly) either, why is this? The boards run vBulletin Version 3.0.3 if that makes a difference.

A:Opera encoding?

I don't think I'm understanding what your initial problem is. Can you take a screen shot and post it here? I primarily use Opera and haven't had any issues with the text.

As far as the Glow feature, that only seems to work within IE. I have a feeling it's a Microsoft only HTML feature and not part of any web standard, although I've never checked to see if that's what the case is.

Just wondering,

Ive currently been using convertxtodvd to make my pal images into NTSC

Instead of letting convertxtodvd do the transcodeing, would using handbrake on all maxed settings (avi xvid codec double encode) with a set resolution of 720x480 (NTSC) yeild better quality results? rather than the vob files from the image?

I would imagine so, since the encoding process takes much longer with hanbrake than convertxtodvd.... but handbreak is, on the other hand making an avi rather than a Video_ts folder....

In short, will using handbrake as the cropping factor yield better quality results then convertxtodvd encoding process

A:Solved: Encoding...

I doubt it. Converting to AVI entails a quality loss. Converting again to a DVD means another loss.

Could you be more specific about what "issue" occurs with microsoft products.

This encoding refers to data text that is converted to numerical characters that the computer can understand. Its a very technical issue but if you need to know more about it, there is a great amount of literature on the subject. Go to a search engine such as Google or Ask and type in your query.

I'm about to buy a TV tuner (Probably Haugpauge WinTV, unless anyone has a reason I shouldn't.) Anyway, before I buy it, I'd like to get a grasp on this encoding business. DixV seems to be the most efficient encoder space-wise, but will I be able to select this encoder when I'm encoding? What about encoding from my VCR? If I already have the DivX codec to play files, does that mean I already have the one to encode them? Is there a tutorial somewhere to teach me how to do this? Sorry for all the questions. I'd really appreciate any suggestions you may have. Thanks so much, and have a great day!

A:Encoding with DivX

well if u have divx codec installed in the system you can encode other file to divx format. I use virtualdub to do this which is a wondeful free tool
download it from
if that does not work go to

in virtualdub open the file>go to video>select full processing mode>then go to compression. you will see a list of video codecs installed in your computer.Choose divx.
similarly go to audio and select a compression (Eg.mp3)
Then come to file>save as avi.

As for tv tuner card , i dont have one but i read a article in a computer mag and it contains every information. but sadly i did not have a copy of it in the computer so i cant send it to you. But i am sure there is plenty of tutorials in net and one just have to find the right one.

the article name Cyberlink PowerVCR II as the editing software. probably you will get some software in your driver cd when u will buy the card but this one is the best.

Using it you can directly save the movie to mpeg which saves a lot of space.

1.Enable DMA from right click my computer>property>device manager>hard drive>setting. repeat the same for ccd drive.

2.Get the latest driver for all the device

3. You need at least 1gb place for the working directory and additional space for saving video footage

Have downloaded a musical movie, length 2:54 hours. The picture is a little dark and audio volume low.
I am trying to re-encode the movie (with video and audio filters), once in "AVIDEMUX", had to stop it after six hours when only 35 % were done. Now I'm trying to do the same with "VideoPad Video editor", there are still 7.5 hours to go and only 21% were done. The program and encoder use almost 88% cpu.
I was thinking to do altogather with "DVD styler" to make a dvd and at the same time make the enhancement, but there is only an option to amplify the volume, no video filters.

but I can still watch the avi movie no problem with Windows Media Player. and I did install all the decompressors I can find on the web.. such as Divx Mpeg4 Mpeg2 and stuff...

Is there any way to find out exactly which compressor is used for this AVI? or is there any other way I can make this a VCD ??

Please help!! Thanx!

I don't know where to do it in Windows Live Mail, I use Thunderbird, but, if you're in the US or UK, the best general setting for character encoding is Western (ISO-8859-1)

A:Nero encoding forever

The encoding to VCD frequently makes images larger than the source video, this is normal. have you tried encoding to an image file, then burning it? I have only done video with Nero, but it worked fine and created the VCD properly.

im recording programs to my tv card using windvr, which creates an mpeg file.
iv been trying using all sort of programs to make those movie files smaller such as TMPGENC, but nothing really makes it easy .. it changes the resolution and tweak it like hell ..
is there anything out there that transform a simple mpeg to a simple avi/divx using the same resolution and elements?

A:encoding MPEG to DIVX

virtualdub will do that if you have the needed codecs . remember to change the settings for video and audio to reduce size first.

A:HandBrake Encoding Error

If you're encoding to an MKV container, just do it without the chapters and then add them manually using mkvtoolnix or some other tool. While it's probably not the cause (but it could be), that last empty chapter marker might be causing an issue.

Scratch that: for whatever reason, that chapter csv file is seriously borked; it has no actual timestamp info in it (this is exactly what that file has):


1,Main Titles
2,Flight 180
4,Early Exit
5,"""I Didn't Cause This."""
8,A Visit With Clear
9,Death's Design
11,Path Of Destruction
12,Miss Lewton
13,Looking For Alex
14,"""Who's Next?"""
15,Safe House
16,Alex's Revelation
17,Race Against Death
18,6 Months Later
19,End Credits
Not sure what's going on and I don't know where you're getting the timestamp info but that csv at that link doesn't have that info inside it which could be the reason it's all busted.

From experience I've never been able to just feed a csv file to HandBrake as a chapter list, it requires a very specific format which irritated me so much I just stopped using chapter markers at all in my own encodes. If you yourself are adding the chapter info and timestamps you're probably going to discover it'll balk at what you're creating which again is just another possibility for the error.

You might consider checking for potentially useful chapter lists as well, they tend to be a bit more accurate overall in my experience (and a somewhat proper format depending).

You could always ask this kind of support question at the actual HandBrake support forum located here too.

A:Encoding errors, cannot burn DVD

I have no experience with your program, but it sure sounds like junk. Maybe it is choking on the image files being too large. If you have photo software, resize all the images to 1000 pixels and save them in a new folder. Then redo the slide show and see if the DVD will compile.

This is an example from a book I've read, but I don't understand how it works.
A web admin may attempt to block SQL injections by  blocking input containing the apostrophe character.
However, an input containing double encoding may be able to defeat the filter.
eg : %2527
Why is this so ? The book stated that %2527 will become %27 after decoding it. What's the process behind it ?
Guidance is appreciated.

I hate Windows feature that enforces installing localized software - e.g. I live in Poland so if I set my location as "Poland" many apps will be installed with Polish interface, which I don't want to.

Therefore I've installed my OS in en-US version and left US as my location. Now it's all nice in terms of apps interface, as it's always English. Most programs cause no problems with one exception - Notepad...

Whenever I open a txt file with Polish national characters, I see "bushes" instead of them. I tried to open them as UFT-8 encoded, but it hasn't helped. I've changed Notepad default font into CE encoding - no effect.

I tend to believe the default Notepad encoding is set to westerns somewhere, but I can't figure where to look for the appropriate setting - can anyone advise me on how to change it, so txt files displayed correctly?

Hi there,

I changed the encryption to Greek and Unicode but nothing happened

Thanks in advance

I taped both of my sisters' graduating ceremonies in the last 2 months and I still have a previous vacation to encode as well. All from a Sony MiniDV Camera, what's the best software I can use to get the BEST resolution & quality? I know codecs are probably required as well.

I'm not worried how much the software will cost either, miniDV tapes seems to be expensive around here, I rather pay enough for an encoding software and be able to re-use the tapes.

I was using Windows Movie Maker before that came with Windows and damn, that's horrible stuff.

A:Need a good encoding program ^^

Do you want to just encode the video, or do you want to make transitions, effects, etc.?

VirtualDub is a free and great utility for the first variant, but I don't know if it supports DV format (guess not). Didn't you get some software with your camera?

Edit: VirtualDub does support capturing video from camera's so you can use it. For the codec, I suggest xVid (just configure it well)

Its possible to remove the avi wrapper but the only way to get rid of the divx encoding is to convert the file to a different format using a different codec.

Can anyone suggest some software for encoding DVD to high quality xvid and/or x264/mkv format videos? I'm not concerned at all with speed, it can take as long as it needs to for the highest quality results. I've had meGui recommended, but it's far far far too complicated for me. I'm looking for something that is simple, and high quality, though, as I said, speed is not of issue.

Hi Zoloft,

There are few converters out there so you can give them a try, but they are not free. The one is Video Converter: Convert video, AVI MPEG WMV MP4 MKV video converter and the second even better is DVD Ripper - DVD ripping software, rip DVD to AVI, MPEG, DivX.

You can always try the free application first, right. I guess this is what you are looking for:All DVD to DivX/Xvid Converter 1 - Free software downloads and reviews - CNET

I'm trying to get as much music as possible onto my MP3 player.
That said, I have a question out of curiosity. I don't mind encoding media in mono-channel, but I am wondering if bitrate can be cut in half?
Basically the question is: does mono @ 64kbps = same quality as stereo @ 128kbps?

A:Question about Media Encoding

No.Personally, I think encoding music to 64 bps, much less mono, is a waste of time.In doing so, you will miss out on a lot of the intricate bits of the music.64 bps mono is fine for speech, or non-music radio, as there is a small range of tones in speech, but not for music.You just loose too much of the sound quality.Music has multi levels of sound, and tones, that need to have a wider range to capture all the detail.It's like listening to the same song on an AM station, compared to an FM station.AM sounds like they're singing in a bucket. What are you using to encode your music?Have you tried encoding the same song at 64 bps mono, and 128 bps stereo, then listening to the difference?If not, try it.If you have a half decent system, you should notice definite difference between the two, in sound quality.I suggest, at a minimum, 128 bps stereo.That's roughly equivelant to CD quality.But, all of this is irrelevant.It depends on what you consider acceptable.

A:BSOD and crashes - during encoding

Hi and Welcome to SF videofx


Usual causes: Defective hardware (particularly memory - but not just RAM), Faulty system service, Antivirus, Device driver, NTFS corruption, BIOS

memory corruption was blamed in the minidump. I would download third party called memtestx86, burn it to CD using iso recorder , and let it run for at least 7 passes.

Also, in looking through your loaded drivers, I see you have this old driver:

ASACPI ASACPI.sys Mon Mar 28 09:30:36 2005 (42476C4C)
It is dated from 2005, which is known for causing BSOD, please update it, follow the instruction in this article:

BugCheck 50, {fffffa8054e907fc, 1, fffff960000faa4e, 5}
Could not read faulting driver name
Probably caused by : memory_corruption

when i encode some films they play ok as avi but when converted to mpeg everything is ok for awhile then the voices come out all wrong for the mouth movements . i have used different encoders and have have the same problems .

A:encoding avi to mpeg going wrong

It's best to copy the audio file (wav/MP3) from the avi to a separate destination first. Then when you're in converter prog and are prompted for the location of avi plus audio file they're coming from different locations. Otherwise thee will be audio out of sync probs.

Good luck.

Hi All

Would like to know.

I took my NVidia GeForce GTX graphics card out of my PC to replace a fan on it. Now I'm ripping DVD's and convert them to avi files(700MB) using Auto Gordian Knot 2.55. Now will the fact that my graphics card is removed have an effect on the ripping quality? I'm currently using my built in motherboard video card, which is not nearly as good as the GTX. Any ideas/knowledge on that?

Thank You?

A:Need graphics card for DVD rip/encoding?

It won't have any effect on the ripping/conversion quality, but it may well affect video playback quality until you put the GeForce card back in the system.
