How to determine if a MPG is regular or KVCD?
Is there any quick way to determine if a MPG file is a regular MPG or has been converted to KVCD. Looking at the bitrate may be helpful as long as the MPG is a standard one ie 1150bitrate but what if it isn't a standard?

Open it in bitrate viewer adn watch the GOP length (and structure).

The original GOP of MPG is 5 frames long (if I remember well) ware KVCD use 24 or 25.

Open the mpg in "restream" by shh.

go to the little floppy-disk symbol in the matrix section and mouse-over it. You will see all the matrix values the mpeg file is encoded with, compare it to our Notch matrix ... and you'll see! ;-)

Now we can start checking commercial DVDs, for unauthorized usage of our matrix :cool: ;)
I'll surely send a bunch of stuff from here to anyone who finds out :twisted:(Seriously!)

EDIT: prev link was bad. this one should work (maybe clik it and
follow url to destination) :idea:
