.dat >mpeg and back to .dat
Experimenting here....before removing VCDGear from system as I have never used it before , I noticed option to convert .dat files to .mpeg. Ol' brain got spinning, and thought I'd try something, which is not the issue. Question is....the conversion took only 7 seconds going from .dat to .mpeg for a 67meg file (only 4 min. video).
I did very small edit to .mpeg , then tried using VCDGear to change back to .dat from revised .mpeg. But, this seemed to stall the program, as progress never appeared, and upon checking for file where it was saved, found only a 67kb .dat file , regardless of how long I allowed VCDGear to sit there "writing" , but showing no progress bar??
Any ideas on this?
PS... The orig. .dat file opened in my editing program same as any .mpeg would , but program wont resave as .dat file. Dont suppose could just change file extension ....dat to mpeg and back??
