You're missing the point. :noworry:

Most of the best video capture hardware and software requires Windows XP, as XP was the OS during the peak analog capture years.

That card probably wasn't street dated until 2003, and was a Q4 2002 release. I have comparable CDs from the era, some of which are already posted here in the ATI AIW driver sticky.

For MPEG, you must only use ATI MMC.

Use the hybrid (software) encoding, and be sure NOT to use the AIW card audio. It's wholly inferior, tinny junk. And the hardware compression relies on ATI AIW...

What is the source, the workflow?

If from VHS/analog, I'd prefer to opt for USB capture carsd, and go lossless.

More essentially than resolution, DV is either 4:2:0 PAL or 4:1:1 NTSC, and sacrifices color data. Like DVD, PAL...
