    Default winmpg help

    usng it to convert some mov files to avi so I can create a dvd from that. but the converted video is far darker than the original. is there anything I can do to fix that? the converting settings are below:

    codec: indeo video 5.10
    no change size checked
    frame rate 25.000fps
    audio type: mp3 lame
    sample rate: 44khz
    also the converted video quality is kinda crappy


    these are vids from a digital camera, but the converted vid is about 25% darker than the original.

    Try doing it uncompressed or using a DV codec for starters.

    ooook, but what do i need to do? n00b here. the whole reason why I'm converting to avi is that i have pinnacle studio 9 and it only accepts avi/mpg(?)

    10) Editng MPEG and other highly compressed video sources - you can download a video of this guide.

    It won't with MOV no. But download the Panasonic DV Codec and encode to that using the convertor you do have.

    thats weird as hell. converted a mov file to avi with the winmpg. when the avi file plays in media player 10 (and pinnacle, which is what I plan to use to burn to DVD), it looks much darker than the original mov file. but in virtualdub, it looks fine, WTF?

    by the way, d/l & installed that codec, but what do I do? the codec doesn't show up in the winmpg codec list
