Can you tell me why 'your' xml options file has a lot more in it than one I just created? comparing the two, we both have entries for: ui.optionTab; audio.encoder; video.format. Yours includes additional settings for: generic.ignoreBuild; ui.mode; ui.param; ui.nowelcome; task.destdir; task.tempdir; ...

Disabling Audio seems to give 100% consistent success, on both machines. I note that the time taken does not reduce - the same 600+ seconds. In fact, running the same conversion on both my old XP Dell Latitude, and my new(er) dual-core vista laptop, yielded almost identical results. If my results ar...

Oh, the inconsistency of it all :)! I launched MC, did a File/Revert all settings; Then did a File/Load Preset, and pointed to the xml file I created from your settings above; cleaned up the temp and output locations. I then added my test MOV file (from the Lumix LX3), and - it converted! It took a ...

Unable to convert to Windows Media

You know, I am STILL unable to get a WMV out of MediaCoder! I've been trying since mid-last year, and tried again last night with the current version. Using the same sources that work for H.264/Mpeg4 above (a canon AVI and a MOV from the Lumix), I choose Windows Media Video/ASF, Windows Media Audio,...

Well I have to confess to a great big, stupid error on my part! I have updated my original post above so that anyone reading the first post won't be misled (see text in red). Basically, in iTunes, when the phone is plugged in, you get the 'device' entry, and when you select it, you get a set of tabs...

OK, finally figured it out - or more to the point, got it to work (though it makes little sense why!). After creating the video, I drag it into iTunes. The item shows in the 'Movies' category in iTunes. For some reason, 'Movies' don't seem to want to synch with my iPhone (but will with my iPod). But...

As I mentioned, every attempt to produce an H.264 file with MediaCoder (version 0.6.2.4242) (varioius bitrates, resolutions, etc) resulted in a file that would not load into iTunes. An H.264 file produced by my friend using Toast (from same source) WOULD load into iTunes. Basically, when you first l...

Converting for iPod vs iPhone, MP4 vs H.264

I'm able to convert a movie shot on my panasonic Lumix camera to play on my iPod using MediaCoder. But I cannot get it to play on my iPhone. If I convert the movie to 'MPEG4' format (not H.264), the resulting file, when dragged to iTunes (v8.0.2.20), lands in the 'Movies' category, and synchs to my ...
