Hey, I have a somewhat interesting problem I think you guys can help me out with!!!!
I am trying to use a special software package called matlab to analyze some video I have taken of a bouncing ping pong ball! Problem is, matlab will only import 8-bit color map video and the video downloaded by my sony mini disk video camera is 16 bit.
What kind of (hopefully free!) software can I use to convert my mpg file into an avi 8 bit color map?? I have tried to find a free video converter and I have also tried adobe premiere using the Microsoft RLE codec (which uses an 8 bit color map), however the rendered video looks weired when I play it in windows media player and load it into matlab.
Thanks in advance for your advice!
