I have recently switched from using FCP to encode my mpeg2 clips to using TMPGEnc. My first disc went great...
My second disc now has gone bad. I placed the finished disc in a pioneer player and the picture is just crap. It digitizes, breaks up and the audio will cut out. I try another player, a cheap shinsonic I purchased at Best Buy and it plays okay except for the areas where the picture is really bad on the pioneer I get what looks like strobing. Audio is fine though...
In further looking at the footage, the player that will do a decently half way job of play back, the strobbing tends to be most noticeable in the heavy motion areas (like dancing, walking) or slowmo areas or crossfades.
Is this an encoding problem or a media problem. I encoded it at
