Any Video Converter software & HD

by tlackey / April 22, 2011 7:53 AM PDT

I am trying to use Any Video Converter to convert high definition video (H.264 ) to DVD MPG. The results are slow motion video and audio out of sync. I haven't spent any money on this converter, but it gets rave reviews and I can't seem to make it work properly. Any suggestions?

"DVD MPG"?
by R. Proffitt Forum moderator / April 22, 2011 1:43 PM PDT

Later you post about HD content. Now I'm confused. Video DVD "MPEG" is, for now, SD content.

You may want to tell EXACTLY what you want to do. AVCHD editors are one thing, creating those HD DVD's are another. Beyond that, I find that few players can handle homebrew HD on DVD.

DVD MPG is a setting on Any video

In reply to: "DVD MPG"?

I was trying to use Any Video to downgrade video taken with my HD camera to SD (i.e. the setting in Any Video called DVD MPG) to see if my Premiere Elements software could better handle it. But when I use Any Video Converter the result is slow motion playback with audio that doesn't sync. So I was wondering if anyone else is having that problem when trying to convert HD video to standard SD format using Any Video Converter.

Ultimately, I'm just looking for a decent video editor that can handle the HD videos from my camera. I understand the output won't be high definition, but it will be a little better than if shot with a SD camera (I think.)

"Ultimately, I'm just looking for a decent video editor that can handle the HD videos from my camera"

Sorry but I missed which camera this is. As you may know, there is AVCHD and then there is "AVCHD from a Sony model XYZ."

-> If the CODEC is in your machine, DVD FLICK will let me create a simple standard Video DVD that plays just about anywhere provided that the CODEC is bug free, it will do so without a glitch or crash on a good machine.

Sorry but the full details are missing and even then there may be some other goal such as low cost to free. I'll note DVD FLICK for now along with SDCOPY.

I have a Canon Vixia HF M30. I did find out something re: Premiere 8 I wasn't doing. Rendering. (press enter in timeline renders video in Premiere) and that has helped A LOT. Thanks to Elements Village forum. (I am just an amateur trying to figure it out.) It means I don't have to down convert my video once I figured that out. Though I'm happy to discuss good video editors. Thanks R. Profitt for your help.

Not an answer. But an observation.

That title was spammed heavily which is never a good sign. It's also light on support.

I'd chuck it and try anything else. In fact, I still use DVD FLICK when I need to create a simple Standard Definition Video DVD. And the price is hard to fault.

LifeHacker highly recommended it and so does CNet. But I can't make it work and you are right, it is very light on support. I can't find other comments about problems I'm having, and I'm sure others must be having them. Perhaps they are using a video editor that works better. I'm using Premiere Elements and I can't give it very high marks either. I'm still searching for a video editor that can do HD well.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
