Is there any Program, that reads an Mpeg File, and gives me the following as an output:

Mpeg 1, 2 or 4
BitRate Video;
BitRate Audio
Interlaced or Not
X-Resolution
Y-Resolution
Audio - Format (Mono, dolby digital, dolby dts, stereo)


(My Problem is, that i have a digital satellite card, that just saves the data Stream that comes from the sky......the format varies depending on channel, daytime, luck, etc...)

Hi Shodan,

Almost every satellite transmission uses MPEG-2. Your saved file is probably MPEG-2 with some DVB stuff multiplexed in the stream. You can try to open your captured file with TMPEG, using the TMPEG tools, and use the "De-Multiplex" option. That will show you the streams, and you can select which you want to De-Multiplex. Another option would be to try to open the file with DVD2AVI, and create a .d2v project file. Then you can open this file with TMPEG and re-encode to VCD or whatever you want.

Hey Cool! Just Works!
I can demux it in TMPGENC!
...but the bitrate...i wonder...
Is this possible?
TMPGENC says the following:

Video Bitrate: 15.000 KB/s (15 mega!! a lil bit high...i wonder if this is the truth...) at 720 x 576

Sound: mpeg 1 Layer 2; 48.000 khz; 192 kbps...

If the Sound is encoded in Dolby Digital - How do i get this info?
Or does this info about the sound mean, that it is normal stereo?
if yes, how would a dolby encoded Stream look like?

Use HeadAC3he to re-encode your audio to 44.1Khz with downsample. If there is Dolby information in your audio stream, it will be preserved and encoded as "Dolby Surround" with HeadAC3he. You can re-encode your video with TMPEG just by opening the .d2v project file you create with DVD2AVI and encode that with any VCD(KVCD) template. Then mux your streams back together with BBMpeg.

Ok, so far it works

but now i've another problem: WHEN to cut the ads with virtualdub?

I am transcoding my MPEG-2 from the Satellite to a lower bitrate KVCD - MPEG2

When is the best time to cut the ads out?

i am planning on the following steps:

1) DEMUX with TMPEG
2a - audio) HeadAche transcoding
2a- video) DVD2AVI -> FITCD -> AVISYNTH -> TMPEG
3.) mux with bbmpeg
4.) author with vcdeasy
5.) burn image with nero

where can i insert the cutting process? Can i cut the mpeg file with virtualdub without reencoding? or loosing A/V synth?

You can cut the mpegs with TMPEG's built in tools. But it's going to be a pain

isn't there another possibility? (preferably one that involves VirtualDub for the Cutting Purposes)?
