Hi, I want to put multiple episodes (50min) on a dvd. I was wondering what compression settings I should use to maintain as much quality as possible. They're supposed to be viewed on a plasma tv. Currently they're recorded with "high quality" (+/- 3 gig / episode). How many should I put on a DVD with what compression...

i looked for a mixer option for ages in ffdshow - i must be going blind! anyway found that and was happily getting 5.1 sound mixed from stereo - however for some reason it seems to make the video go choppy - going back to stereo makes the video fine again. cpu usage is only 20% or so.. who knows *shrug*

Clear the job list in Virtualdub (F4) 3...

Well, I have two cards with separate tuners, both DVB but one for sattelite and none for cable. If a computer is ment to place it near the TV then it has to be very silent and ended up with mobile technology and a processor that would have to run at top speed if it had to decode a mpeg stream. So these cards have a dedicated...

It should have encrypted transfer and it should not make any files publicly available. And it should be able to bypass firewalls like e.g. Zonealarm since both parties are behind firewalls. Does anyone know of...
