720p or 1080i MPEG2 settings please



Hello everyone, I have a great looking video that has crisp subtitles, but I've tried to encode it with everything that I can find. Compressor on a mac, and on down from there. The MPEG2 files that i get to look good on the computer wont play in the roku hd2000 player, but if I get something that is about VHS quality, they seem to play fine. Im not a digital video expert, but a bit handy. I just need this file to look as good as it does in iMovie, lol.

So if we could post 'EXACT' favorite settings for compressor and/or any other program, that would be great, as I'm getting exhausted by the blue bar of export.

Thank you, Thank you, Thank you

    Patrick,



    Would it be possible for you to upload a file that doesn't play? What's the extension of the file that doesn't play? Can you confirm the resulting mpeg2 that doesn't play is a program stream?



    The user's guide has directions for output files using compressor 3.



    If you're using compressor 2, it outputs a .m2v video file, and a separate audio file. You'll need to use a program like streamclip to merge the two files.

    I got it with compressor 3,  than you.  However I am also having the 2 week audio drift issue.  I saw your post regarding mpeg2vcr, but I would rather do the complete job in compressor if it is possible, so again, if you or anyone on the board could post the best commpressor 3 settings to use, I would appreciate it.  I followed the manual, but as Im sure you are aware there are many other small tweaks that can be messed up.

    Have a look at the PDF in the Roku folder at:

    <!-- m --><a class="postlink" href="http://public.me.com/mixed.media">http://public.me.com/mixed.media</a><!-- m -->



    It shows the settings I've been using on a 1080p Motion project with audio. Looks nice when projected to 3m wide other than some artifacts on cross-dissolves. It appears that the bit rate listed in Compressor does not include audio, I've tried maxing out to 25Mbps but that seems to cause audio dropouts which I assume is caused by the total bit rate exceeding the 2000's limit.
