comment Vegas pro will not show video for avi with mp4v fourcc codec?
That's how I was able to record with the codec in the first place. ffdshow seems to have the encoder for MP4V, but not the decoders, or at least, not any decoder Vegas Pro will use.

comment What exactly does the video rendering quality option do in Sony Vegas Pro?
It's HDV footage. I don't know why the settings are that way.

Added project settings. I've been told that before about the bitrate and use Handbrake of ffmpeg to recompress. Two things. 1) I don't really notice a quality difference, 2) This would add significant processing time to my workflow.

I've added snapshots of the render settings to the question.

Thank you. Very valuable information. Since Preview and Best differ by three of the four settings, which do you suppose was causing the issues?

comment What exactly does the video rendering quality option do in Sony Vegas Pro?
@audionuma I should mention that these artifacts are consistent across all formats tried. mpeg-2, mp4, HDV, etc. I wasted a lot of time this evening realizing that it was this setting. I tried it last because "preview" implies lesser quality than "best". My question was originally "How to fix this" but tried this as a last ditch so I can say I tried everything. I was not expecting it to fix it.

comment Does the MP4 HTML5 compatible video type allow for mono audio?
Thank you. I'll give this a go and report back. A few things 1) Why is Vegas Pro not better suited for this? Is that by intentional design or a flaw? 2) Where did you get 6kbps? My understanding is that the difference between a 128kbps mono stream and a 128kbps stereo stream is that the mono stream is double the rate of any of the two stereo channels. In speech, the quality difference between 64kbps and 128kbps is remarkable, and on a one hour lecture is close to 50MB. Multiplied by thousands of lectures (which I have) that's a notable consideration.

What's a GOP? So, the program scanned the bytes of the file for specific byte sequences that tag the start and end of chunks?

Yes, wonderful! ASFTools was able to fix it. Steeper was not. In ASFTools I first clicked on "Make Seekable", but then it suggested clicking on "Lost Chunks". That fixed it. Not sure what that means technically speaking, but it is now seekable and I can edit the original video.
