View Full Version : Video Codecs: MPEG 1/2
does the S9 support videos in MPEG 1 or 2? reason why i ask is because my Hauppauge TV card uses those 2 codecs and it would be very convenient to me to record something using either. that's what i've been doing for the last 2 years with my Creative ZV:M.
i feel it's time to me to move on to a bigger screen, but i would only do it if the player supported MPEG 1 or 2. from what i've gathered, the O2 supports the two codecs, right?
are you talking about the mpeg transport stream ? its a bit diffrent to mpeg2
no. i really mean MPEG-1 and MPEG-2. my Hauppauge PVR-250 and many other TV cards create .MPG files. with my Creative ZV:M i can record a show using the VCD profile and immediatelly transfer it to the player.
i really like my player, but i'm planning to get something else with a bigger screen. however, i dont wanna lose the convenience of my current setup. i wanna be able to transfer MPEG-1 or MPEG-2 files without conversions.
if its a dvb card then it is a dump of mpeg 2 transport stream if you whould like to read up about it http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/MPEG_transport_stream
also what software are you useing
it's an analog NTSC card. it creates .MPG files using the VCD, SVCD and DVD profiles. i usually use the VCD profile because:
1) the ZV:M natively supports the codec and format.
2) the loss of quality isnt noticeable on the small ZV:M's.
3) the generated files are (relatively) small.
if the S9 does not support the MPEG-1 codec, no problem. it seems the O2 does.
