    Converted Files Lose Audio -- Fix?

    I captured some Charlie Rose interviews, using Replay Video's Catcher 4. The resulting files are in FLV format. I used both RV's Catcher4 and RV's Converter to convert those file to mpg2, so as to be able to author them to DVDs using VRD597. But when I load those converted mpg files into...

    Need Advice on Displaing Closed Captions

    I'd appreciate advice about the feasibility of recording and displaying Closed Captions(CC). Using a Hauppauge PVR 150 Card, I record BBC Mysteries from PBS for my wife and a neighbor and edit them with VRD 597-- but as Churchill said, Brits and Americans are divided by a common language. The...

    Can I blank-out video but retain audio? How?

    I've captured a web-based seminar and converted it to mpg. VRD allows me to edit it. Unfortunately, at one point my screen saver started and I captured a couple of minutes of that instead of the seminar's video. The audio is the seminar's. I would like to blank the video for the 2-minutes...

    Need Advice to Capture Streaming Video

    I'd appreciate receiving suggestions on how to capture streaming video (primarily archived C-Span and PBS programs), preferably capturing them in MPEG-2 format so that I can use VRD to edit them. I've tried, without success, using WMEncoder and Replay Video Capture. My system is XP SP3...

    BETA 479 Locks Up my System

    A problem with VRD BETA 479 that has never occurred to me before with previous versions of VRD: When I try to invoke it, either by clicking on its shortcut or by clicking on a MPG file, my system locks up and has to be rebooted. I tried it several times -- happens every time. My system...

    NERO vs. ROXIO -- Which is Better?

    My NERO often takes 8-10 times as long to recode seemingly-identical output from VideoReDo. Question: How does Roxio's Easy Media Creator v.8 perform on recoding? Does it have the same problem? I'd much appreciate seeing reports from ROXIO users. Eric

    What controls/affects coding time?

    I'm really puzzled by the fact that very similar capture files can take very different time to code in NERO 6.6. Two 90 minute captures of the same program take, in one case, about 12 minutes to code and in the other case about 10 times as long, i.e., a little over 2 hours. In both cases, I...
