Yesterday I bought a new toy
It's the Pinnacle Bungee DVD USB MPEG-2 encoder.
This thing kicks out excelent quality, but only MPEG-2.
It's a hardware MPEG-2 encoder with Composite Video/S-Video and left/right audio inputs.

So I put it to the "stress test" by capturing from my 4DTV C-Band Satellite System.

I have posted two samples below. 10 second from a Gallo wine commercial. The sample was captured from an analog channel, with some of the little visible noise, in all it's glory. I also used the composite video for the capture. Not the S-Video connector.
The capture is at 720x480 MPEG-2 at 5Mbps constant bit rate. The Pinnacle Bungee can capture at 352x480, 480x480 and 720x480 at up to 9.5Mbps. Because it's a USB 1.1, the max rate is 12Mbps. I wish it was USB 2.0, as the rate is 480Mbps!, but it's not.
Nevertheless I captured the sample in my Pentium III 800Mhz notebook.
At 6Mbps there were dropped frames, and that's why I lowered to 5Mbps. It's great!. There are no blocks.

So to put the KVCDx2 to the test I processed the sample with the new template and see for yourselves the result!.

The original MPEG-2 sample is 6,463MB
The same sample, processed through the template, is 2,663KB.

The size is large because it's a full screen commercial, with bright colors and movement.

Here's the link for the original MPEG-2: http://ns1.shidima.com/kwag/gallo-mpeg2-5mbps.mpg

And here's the KVCDx2 MPEG-1: http://ns1.shidima.com/kwag/gallo-kvcdx2.mpg


Now tell me, can you tell the difference?

Enjoy! ( comments always welcome )

MAN its great, i wish that the appartment in which i live had the posibillity to use Directv or DishNetwork I WOULD GET GREAT qualities but i cant by the moment

CRAP!!!!!

GREAT VIDEOS

I WANT MINE TO BE LIKE THAT

i guess that if i use the videos i have with your codec the only thing i ll get is smaller size

another thing if i want to have the letter box bigger lets say that size you made the lates Matrix sample i only have to change the resolution right ?? if soo which one did you use?

Thanks in advanced

I always use FitCD to get the proper resize values for the target I want, and automatically generate the .avs script.
Then AviSynth takes care of everything.

I'll post more samples captured with the Bungee and converted to KVCDx2 ( as soon as my wife gets off the TV )
