I read a couple of posts that mentioned how to get good capture PQ at small output size and it related to installing FFDSHOW.
In VFW configuration of FFDSHOW its as followed:
mode- one pass constant bit rate
Now I ran a test recoed of about six minutes and came up with a file of 260MB; This can't be xvid :shock: I've created backups of dvds to xvid format that consisted of 1.5-2hrs, 699MB; and excellent PQ. How can I get MP to use ffdshow, or any codec or codec pack to allow me to capture tv to xvid format.
My goal is to output a smaller file with good PQ
Also, can I have advice on how to get better veiw PQ when I'm watching tv on my pc.
If I enable the option to allow ffdshow post processing and try to veiw live tv, MP crashes. When I disable ffdshow postprocessing, I can veiw tv; anyone know why this is?
