Windows won't help you with this. There are several file info programs available. I use MediaInfo, which I like especially for the context menu entry "MediaInfo" that allows you to quickly open video files and view their meta data in the program. It shows mostly anything there is to know about the video file. The information you are looking for will be ...

You should be able to tell just by looking at it. When you watch for motion and see a comb-like horizontal pattern, the video is interlaced. You could also try pausing the video at several points and looking for this pattern, but not every frame will look interlaced. Pause the video at points where there is quick motion, and step forward one frame at a ...

I can recommend Adapter. It is a Wrapper for the ffmpeg package and does its job pretty well. Because of its easy UI. You could also use ffmpeg directly via macports, but I think that Adapter is far easier to control.

FFmpeg should be able to do this - assuming you don't mind getting down with the command line (there may be some GUI options out there too possibly). My Olympus E-P3 produces .MTS files - I assume they're similar (AVC/AC3 in a Blu-Ray Video wrapper). I ran the following command: ffmpeg -i 00001.MTS -vcodec copy -acodec copy -f mp4 00001.mp4 That just ...

I think the simplest way to this is to use MP4Box. ./MP4Box -add file1.mp4 -cat file2.mp4 -cat file3.mp4 output.mp4

Analyzing the files that fail to open in contrast to those that do open just fine shows one glaring problem: All lines in the project.prel file (which is just an XML file) where there should be decimal numbers in <StartKeyframe> or <Keyframe> tags are damaged. Example: Correct version: ...

Not enough info. Try getting a copy of the GSpot Codec Information program (google it) and report back here what it says about the file. Size is almost certainly not the problem.

All anyone might be able to say is that there are no known holes in the various players. (I don't know if that's true, just that it's impossible to know that there are no undiscovered bugs in a complex piece of code.) H.264 streams are complex enough to have lots of corner cases. They're parsed with speed-optimized code written in C and assembly. You're ...

You can't do much about it. Movie Maker can only export in WMV format - and WMV is created for small video sizes (at the cost of quality). You will need another software package to export in other formats than WMV. Check out Pinnacle products for alternative - they target amateur producers.

Driver type ASIO Audio device ASIO4ALL v2 Aha, there we go. ASIO is designed to give only one program at a time access to the audio hardware. As I said, this is in principle a good thing, because it ensures the DAW can run trouble-free and without overly long latency or crippled sound introduced when the OS tries to combine the audio from different ...

Solution #2 (as Eric Vinyard suggested): 1. Locate file: C:\Program Files (x86)\Common Files\Adobe\SLCache\X19zbGNfZmVhdHVyZXNf­Xw==.slc 2. Open it with a text editor (may need to open it as an admin as this is in Program Files directory) 3. Delete everything the file contains 4. Save and close 5. Set the 'Read Only' attribute for the file: Right Mouse - ...

I was encountering audio sync issues when trying to do this with Avidemux, but I came upon a two-step process that keeps the audio in sync: Concatenate files using MKVToolNix (I used version 7.4.0 for Mac). This results in a Matroska video (.mkv) file. Remux the .mkv file to MP4 format using Avidemux (I used verison 2.6 for Mac). I chose the MP4v2muxer ...

This can also be accomplished if you have VirtualDubMod and a TextSub provider installed such as VobSub or VSFilter. To use VobSub, during installation you must select the Plugins -> TextSub for VirtualDub and Avisynth option. To use VSFilter, you must locate the VSFilter.dll file in the installation directory and copy it to the plugins folder with the ...

After tearing my hair out I found the "hand cursor", now I can drag the panel around however I want it :)

Most likely, the jerkiness is just your system being overloaded. Many screen capture programs record relatively large files to avoid loading the CPU while capturing, but this means that the data rates needed for playback can be very high and thus can result in problems with reading the data fast enough to keep up with playback. As far as the degradation, ...

Blender does have compositing capability, and can be used to do some of the stuff that AE does. It's free, but you have to learn how to use it, so how highly you value your time counts in the final equation. If you want to see Blender in action as a compositor you can see the "Tears of Steel" short film made with Blender last year.

The good news is I didn't just overlook something. Transcoding .WMV to .MOV is a real problem. The bad news is that it cost me $29 to solve it. I purchased the "Player Pro" license for Flip4Mac by Telestream after reading this support article by Apple.

I tried kdenlive, so I'll post my findings about it as an answer. It didn't quite do the job, so I'm not going to mark this as the accepted solution. kdenlive easily imports my clips in mjpeg+pcm, and flac. And looks like it can export through ffmpeg, which is what I want. It has a feature to "set audio reference", and for other tracks, "align audio to ...

iMovie comes free with a Mac and can easily do what you want. Here's how I'd do it, for each section you want to replace with a freeze frame: Decide where you want to start and stop the freeze frame. Cut the video clip at each of those points (right-click and select "Split"). See how long (exactly) that section is. Within that section, click on the frame ...

HitFilmFX integrates nicely with Sony Vegas Pro 12. It is much cheaper than AE. Take a look at Sony Vegas Pro 12 Suite. There is also Boris RED and Boris Continuum Complete for Sony Vegas, GenArts products, NewBlueFX...

After Effects is an extremely powerful tool, not just because of the out of box abilities but also its integration with 3rd party plugins...In some degrees I could say it can compete with Nuke which is like 4k, and even more for Nuke X In terms of Pro-sumer/ boarder-line Professional Software these two are in a league of their own, being both MAC and PC ...

While what you are asking about is technically possible, it wouldn't be easy or cheap. It would in fact be very expensive. To use a channel, you would need to form your own cable network within your house and play different sources for each channel into the system. These are the kinds of systems that hotels buy to do their own cable network in the ...

Create a .bat file containing: del "C:\Program Files (x86)\Common Files\Adobe\SLCache\X19zbGNfZmVhdHVyZXNfXw==.slc" start "AME" "C:\Program Files\Adobe\Adobe Media Encoder CC\Adobe Media Encoder.exe" and just run AME with it. You could add Premiere Pro in as well so that AME get's started before Premiere Pro and all is good. Premiere will then be able to ...

While it can't go direct to H.264, VirtualDub I believe can work with Vfw codecs and can transcode to something more compatible with your other tools. I don't know if Quicktime for Windows supports Vfw codecs or not, but I do believe the Pro version of Quicktime supports H.264 encoding. If you have Adobe Media Encoder, it would also easily do what you ...

Meanwhile, I found a solution. Not sure if there is a hidden function under Windows to do the calibration, but some programs like Skype can be used to configure the camera settings. Whatever settings are applied in Skype->Options->Video Settings, they are global for the overall system.

Adobe premiere has a speech analysis system built in, after cs4 I believe. Machine transcription systems tend to be very poor though - in my experience it is only useful for a vague sense of where you are in the video. See below: http://www.realeyes.com/blog/2010/03/05/caption/ Human transcription services are getting cheaper as many of them use Amazon's ...

Best tool for this is MediaInfo. This tool is opensource and has nearly daily updates for features and bug fixes. It is an analyzer of media files. Have many levels of how deep it will report you about media file. While it is not checking the integrity of the whole media file it check correctness of headers and tells you about capabilities.

1. Recover broken files I found this online application very helpful. http://www.vibait.com/software/premiere-fix-keyframe.h-142/ Simply upload your Premiere Elements file and you get a fixed version in return. Save it to your disk and open it. With one file I got error messages like this one a few times: Parse error on line 1431. Expected 8 values, got ...

i think MPEG Streamclip can do this. It's free on mac and pc.

I would suggest using ffmpeg, and the -vcopy switch. Usually this will work, but it depends on codec support. Various builds of it have various codecs. If one version of it doesn't work, try downloading a copy from a different site.
