There is some new information that I just read on another forum. Apparently there is a lot of variability allowable in the MPEG spec. If the specifications of the files do not match the specifications that NVE anticipates, it re-encodes. One person said that if the audio files do not match, NVE re-encodes. Another poster said that he download TMPEGEnc MPEG Editor (sorry) and it reported that there were parts of his file that were either error or out of spec.DanR said:NVE does not always re-encode files, but so far we are haven't been able to figure out its criteria.
Apparently Tsunami's MPEG editor will convert the audio track at edit time to make it compatible. Is that feature something that VRD+ should consider adding? I really know nothing about the spec or how seriously the warning should be taken for player compatibility, but if Ulead and Tsunami are allowing me to make disks that may not play on some machines, that is not good. I would consider buying their editor for these files, but it will not run on a machine that does not have an Internet connection.phd said:Based upon the message you received, it sounds like Nero wants to see at least one audio track in Dolby or LPCM in order to accept an MPEG audio track.
Two reasons: 1) I already own Nero and would like to use it instead of having to buy another package that does the same or less, if I can solve the re-encoding matter, and 2) if these packages are allowing creation DVDs that may not play on some players because they allow deviation from the DVD spec, it is a cause for concern for me. Those seem like good reasons, to me.Anole said:So.... why again are we still beating a dead Nero Vision Express?
