APEX 1500 and 1200

I have a 1500 and a 1200. I encode using Kwag's early matrix at 352x480 as mpg3 with 3:2 pulldown. Best size/quality I have gotten for both players.

I have an Apex 1500 and an Apex 1200. I finally settled on using the old 352x480 KVCD template and converting it to mpg2 w/ 3:2 pulldown. Filesize is smaller on 352x480 vs 480x480 and quality is...

Will try again. Got results written down at home though.

Going to 29.97 fps adds substantial filesize. With SVCD, I can keep 23.97 fps and use 3:2 pulldown to keep my filesizes down. Again, my...

I remember trying that a while back. I got slight video skips, if I recall correctly. I ended up doing 480x480 SVCDs. That way, I could use 3:2 pulldown. Works good. I would like to get other...

reman

What did you do to get 704x480 working on your 1500. Won't work on mine. I get audio skips. Tried demux/remux too. No avail.

Kwag,

You misread my post. The old template I used was ( 1-12-3-1-0 ) compared to ( 1-18-3-1-0 ). I haven't tested ( 1-12-3-1-48 ) versus ( 1-18-3-1-48 ) yet though.

Thanks!!

Kwag

I have been converting your templates to 352x240 VCD and 480x480 SVCD. These formats are the only two that work both in the Apex 1500 and the Apex 1200.

Using test samples, I converted...

I have been testing myself. I have been testing for 352x240 though. I compared the current 352x240 template with the original 352x480 template (changed to 352x240). I tinkered with CQ until I got...

The chart says the Ns300 will play the templates as is. Download the samples and try them.

I don't test with the whole movie. I just test a 10 min segment. Doesn't take long to encode then.

Which Template?

To get Kwag's templates to work on both the Apex 1500 and 1200, I have to convert in 352x240 resolution. My question is, which template should I start with?

I don't like the 352x240 template for...

I can get KVCD at 352x480 SVCD with 3:2 pulldown to work. Just make sure you select "MPEG-2 Super VideoCD (VBR)" under the System tab. This keeps your burner from padding too much.

I also get...

I will. I just tested with Joint Stereo because some said you had to use JS to get the higher res templates to work on my Apex.

Thanks!!!

Just used Kwag's 704x480 template. Changed res to 704x576. My AD 1500 works with either Joint Stereo or Dual Channel. Others have said to try JS with the 1500 so I assumed DC didn't work for them. I...

Alright, I know some of you said you got the 704x480 KVCDx2's to work on an APEX 1500. I'm talking VCD, not SVCD. If you did, please reply with the how-to's.

Thanks!!

Re-encoded a full movie with KVCD using 480x480 instead of 352x480. I also still used a 3:2 pulldown. Mucho padding. Just like the 352x480. Don't remember this with old 480x480 encodes in the...

Added a lot of data just like VCDEasy did. This was a KVCD 352x480 mpg2...
