I've received a solicitation to made a Mpeg2 encoding, this file should be used to burn a dvd.
I'd used the MPG2 PAL 7 mbit template from compression master to do this.
But today the guys told me that this files didn't work to do the dvd and ask me to use this settings:
image size: 720x576
bit rate: 1150 (or more)
aspect ratio: 4:3
gop size: 12
audio: 48 khz stereo
bit rate: 224 kbps stereo
I've tried to do this in the compressor, but the files isn't open in the QT player, and the compressor don't let that I set the audio options.
Well, 1150kbps is very very low for an MPEG-2 bit rate at full frame size. Some DVD players will not play an encode below 2200kbps, so be aware of that. But in order to play the file back in QT, the system you are attempting to play the file back on must have the QT MPEG-2 decoder installed. Final Cut Studio includes this, but the standard QT or QT Pro does not. As far as the audio, that shouldn't be a problem if you encode to MP2 or AC-3.
