I create mpeg2 files with movie mill and the avc-2000 capture card. I check these mpeg2 files with vdub1.5 (w/mpeg) and
if there are errors, I forget it - occassionally this happens,
but not often. About 1 out of 4 of these mpeg2 files that
show no errors from vdub will fail when tmpgenc authoring
is creating the dvd folder - the message is “read error”.
it just happened again - 1) Vdub reads the entire 3 gig file
with no problem. Powerdvd plays it with no problem.
I am using Neodvd to convert it to a dvd folder and it is
doing that as I write - no problems. The frist thing Neodvd
does is check the mpeg2 file for standards compliance,
and then it goes ahead and decodes, then re-encodes
(but I want to avoid the way NeoDVD encodes).
Has anyone else ever had tmpgenc auth just quit
with the read eror message? I can run it against
several other mpeg2 files I have on the same disk
and it works great.
When tmpgenc auth works, it is great. When it fails
and I haven’t a clue, it very frustrating.
