Squeeze? Cleaner? Maybe a shareware program?

I'm faced with the AWESOME-LY awful task of needing to convert 250+ 1/2hr programs into MPEG2.

The source is a QT movie using the 625 IMX 50 codec (PAL).

The client has been very vague and has requested MPEG2 @ 15mbs with a LONG GOP/Windows based encode.

Is there even a difference between a windows based encode and a mac based encode when it comes to MPEG2?

[Proper Modulation] "Is there even a difference between a windows based encode and a mac based encode when it comes to MPEG2?"

there shouldn't be. It just conforms to specifications.

AS for best pc mpeg2 encoder?

Procoder 2 gets my vote. its fast as well.

I'd second ProCoder for PC MPEG-2 encoding.

I'm not sure that the 625 IMX 50 codec is available on Quicktime for Windows? Don't you have to have an Avid installed in order to get access to the format?
