Hi. I post this here because you made me discover BeSweet.
I found this strange feature. I choose, in BeSweet+BeSweet GUI, the profile ‘MP2 for SVCD’.
This profile, by what I see, ahould set the bitrate at 192 kbps.
Instead, since I’ve obsarved that a MP2 created for a 1h 53’ movie was
- 106.5 MB if created by BeSweet
- 189.9 MB if de-multiplexed by TMPGenc from the final mpeg
I begun using also HeadAC3he. What i found is that, by opening the 106.5 MB audio file, HeadAC3he shows:
- stream info: MP3 48 kHz 2ch joint stereo 128 kbps
instead, by opening the 189.9 MB file, I see:
- stream info: MP2 44.1 kHz 2ch joint stereo 224 kbps
and this is correct, since 106.5/189.9 = 128/224.
Therefore, it seems that BeSweet doesn’t create a ‘true’ MP2 file as it is shown.
What I cannot understand is that if I add the MP2 stream to a ‘mute AVI’ with VirtualDubMod, the resulting AVI cannot be correctly re-transformed into a MPG if it is the ‘correct’ MP2 (224 kbps), but if I add the ‘bad’ MP2 stream created by BeSweet the resulting AVI can be correctly re-transformed t mpg by TMPGenc.
Any comment? I will keep the ‘AVI mute video’ and the ‘MP2 sound’ file separated, just to be sure, but that’s is strange…I would’t like to lose quality in the audio stream…
