Im getting a problem in winavi mp4 converter. I tried to use the program and got this error i have also tried the demo of divx converter and it said that there was a problem with an mpeg1 codec. Anyone know how i can sort this out?

Serious trouble. Try in compatibility mode.


#3

Tried it in all modes apart from win 95. Why serious trouble?

you could always try sony image converter, and then once you;ve got to mpeg use quicktime pro to convert to avi works for me. oh and before you say oh but those arent free, yes they are :wink:

Hey Greg. I´m in the middle of a similar strange problem - trying to import an mpeg I made into Premiere for editing…it accepts it but handles it “a bit slowly”: 36 hours for 70mb…!
So, I tried converting to avi with WinAVI - the result was a 7mb avi file which Premiere wouldn´t recognise!
How weird is that?

You say Quicktime can convert it? I haven´t checked it out - think it´s worth a try?

By the way - browsing thru the forums - ran across the first post in this thread, while half watching a video on my tv - looked back and saw this (screenshot below)…scared the hell out of me…even tried to click the ok button! Good grief @ haveacigar - nice resolution!

Maybe a useful solution here

I managed to convert the mpeg to an avi which did everything it was supposed to do (would have saved days of sweat if I´d found it earlier).
It seems to be able to convert a heap of formats quickly and it´s really easy to use.
