MPEG-1 Encoding on OSX - Bottom Line
on May 1, 2005 at 11:42:34 pm

I'm about to upgrade a G4 to Tiger thus ditching my trusty OS9 / Cleaner 5.1.2 partition. Despite the things I've read about Cleaner and MPEG-1, I've made hundreds of successful MPEG-1 videos with Cleaner 5.1.2 on OS9.

From what I've read in this forum it's down to Compression Master and Squeeze for MPEG-1 on OSX. My question is: Is there a clear winner? Can anyone say that they are thrilled with the MPEG-1's they're getting out of either ap?

Thanks in advance.

For MPEG-1, you'd probably still be happiest with Cleaner 5.1.2 and OS 9. I've never been happy with Squeeze's MPEG-1 or 2 output, and while almost everything has been greatly improved with Squeeze 4.1 (including MPEG-2 encoding), MPEG-1 is still lacking. With CM, the results have always been decent enough for me, but for the most part, it appears Cleaner 5.1.2 will always be the king.

I'd check out Main Concept. They have a professional grade encoder for Mac now, and it does fine MPEG-1.
