CHAPTER 6 USING MPEG ENCODER
The Mpeg Encoder lets you convert DV/AVI files into MPEG/DVD format.
6.1 Interface Explanation
Below is the interface window for the Mpeg Encoder:
The interface window is composed of four parts:
Header Buttons (Upper
Right)
Batch Process Display
Window (Upper Left)
Add files, delete files, Edit options, Start and Stop
encoding, Help files.
Displays the file name, encoding status, screen size, audio
format, and play time of the files to be encoded.
Progress Display Window Displays formatting information about the file being
(Lower Left)
encoded.
Preview Display Window
Displays the video of the file being encoded.
(Lower Right)
6.2 Streaming Video Translation
MPEG Encoder converts multimedia files into MPEG/DVD format. For multimedia files to
be encoded using the MPEG Encoder, they must be able to be played with Windows Media
Player. File formats that can be converted are: AVI, DV-AVI, MPEG 1, MPEG 2, ASF, WMV,
DivX, and DAT.
21
To add a multimedia file to be encoded, click on
the + or Add button. This will open the Browse
dialog box. Browse to the desired directory/file
and click Open.
Once the multimedia file is added to the Batch
Process Display Window, the Option Selection
Dialog Box appears. Select to encode the file as
Mpeg 1 or Mpeg 2. For more information, refer to
the Translation Option Dialog Section 6.3.
The output file will be created in the same
directory as the original file unless a different path
is specified in the Output field. It will also
maintain the original video file name and add a file
extension matching the video format of the output
type selected. The file name can also be changed
manually.
22
6.3 Translation Option Dialog
When a media file is added to the Batch Process Display Window, the Option Dialog Box
will appear. Choose one of the formats and click on OK to continue.
The MPEG-1 menu includes 7 profiles to choose from. Each profile
displays the video bit rate of that format.
The Following list explains each profile:
Auto (match
source)
Calculates the most appropriate bit rate according to the screen size of the
translating file
Internet low band 256Kbps, QCIF(160*120), 23.976frame/sec, QCIF(Quarter CIF)
Half Screen
Intranet
384Kbps, QCIF(160*120), 23.976frame/sec, QCIF
Full Screen
Intranet
768Kbps, CIF(320*240), 23.976frame/sec, CIF(Common Intermediate Format)
NTSC
Create MPEG file suitable for NTSC of American color TV broadcasting
PAL
Create MPEG file suitable for PAL of European color TV broadcasting
Video CD
Create MPEG file suitable for creating video CD
An inverse relationship exists between bit rate and compression. As
the bit rate increases, the screen quality gets clearer, but the
compression rate drops. If “Auto (match source)” is selected, the
application will pick the optimized bit rate with respect to screen
size. (Note: MPEG 1 & 2 formats have "Variable Bit Rates", that is,
bit rates that can be adjusted). Selecting "Enable VBR" lets the
application automatically compress the video while maintaining
satisfactory screen quality within the maximum bit rate. Adjustments
for video quality, resolution, format, aspect ratio, and Intra DC
Precision can be manually set.
23
The MPEG-2 menu includes 7 profiles to choose from. Industry
standard MPEG 2 DVD and SVCD profiles are included. Variable
bit rate override can be manually selected.
The Following list explains each profile:
HP@H14
80Mbps, 1440*1152 (High Profile at High-1440)
HP@ML
20Mbps, 720*576
MP@HL
80Mbps, 1920*1152 (Main Profile at Main Level)
MP@H14
60Mbps, 1440*1152
MP@ML (DVD)
Encode MPEG files suitable for creating DVD. Default 6Mbps
MP@LL
4Mbps (Main Profile at Low Level)
MF@ML (SVCD)
Encode MPEG files suitable for creating SVCD. 2.5Mbps
MPEG 1 & 2 profiles create audio files that are MPEG 1, Layer 2 in specification with bit
rate choices of 128 Kbit/sec and 224 Kbit/sec.
Video only: When selected, the encoder will only encode the
video and not the audio.
24
Once the output video format and options are specified and the OK button is clicked, the file
will appear in the Batch Process Display Window.
The Batch Process Display Window shows the status of the media file in the Status column.
1. Waiting: the media file is queued and ready for encoding. Click on the encoding button to
begin encoding.
2. Exclusion: the media file will not be encoded.
3. Done: the media file is successfully encoded.
To change a file's status between Waiting and Exclusion (and vice versa), double-click on the
file name. The Waiting status will change to Exclusion and be reported as "Skip". Similarly,
a file with a "Skip" status when double-clicked, will change to "Waiting."
When a file is in the Exclusion (Skip) status, you cannot encode the file. Double-click the file
name to change the status to Waiting.
During Encoding, the Status column displays the percentage of progress. Once the encoding
begins, the Encoding button changes to a Stop button. If the Stop button is clicked during
encoding, the process will stop.
To view the encoded output video file, highlight the video file and click on
the Output Play button.
