"Sequence end codes"?

Hi, not sure whether this is a VRD issue or DVDAuthorGUI issue!?

I like to use the terrific, simple & free DVDAuthorGUI for my authoring needs, however when I feed it elementary streams from VRD it instructs me to run the ".m2v" stream through Restream to "remove sequence end codes".

After doing so, everything is fine.

However, I'm curious why this Restream step is necessary? Can I tweak anything in VideoReDo to bypass this step?

Thanks!

Do you get the same issue, if you simply save as type "VOB" from VideoReDo and input that to DVDauthorGUI.

(I think from memory, it's the other way around for DVDauthorGUI compared with GUIfordvdauthor, doesn't the former want mpeg with blank NAV packets, with file extension .VOB?)

VideoReDo should output one sequence end code at the end of the file.

Thanks, to be honest I haven't tried inputting vobs into DVDAuthorGUI.

Anyway, it's no big deal, probably just a quirk of DVDAuthorGUI.

Lester, DVDAuthorGUI accepts elementary streams or vobs with empty nav packets.

GUIforDVDAuthor wants elementary streams, or muxed material with nav packets & continuous time code.

I don't quite understand all this stuff, but I'll stick with DVDAuthorGUI for now.

Thanks!
