Thread: virtualDub error

  1. #1

    Default virtualDub error

    the files i am using are .VOB files

    Once i have selected the panansonic codec from the list and try to "save as" i get the error message:

    cannot start video compression:
    the source image format is not acceptable.
    (error code -2)

    do the VOB's need to be changed to MPEG's?
    If so how do i do this?

    If you're from the UK, it needs to be in 720*576 (PAL) format.
