MPEG-2/Uncompressed Audio using Compressor
on Oct 14, 2010 at 7:50:14 pm

I am looking to compress files to upload directly to our playback server for our small tv station. The compression settings I am trying to create are: MPEG-2 program or elementary streams with 16 or 24-bit, 48kHz, uncompressed audio.

I can't seem to find a way to control the audio settings in Compressor when trying to create an MPEG-2 file.

Anyway to create an MPEG-2 with uncompressed audio using, ideally Compressor or MPEG Streamclip, FCP or Premiere?

Thanks!
Ryan

As far as I know Muxed mpgs have mpg audio by default and this is why there isn't a option in Compressor to change this.

The compressor defaults match the source audio as far as bit rate/48kHz etc.

Unless the server accepts an unmuxed version(separate Mpg-2 and aiff) I do not see a way around this unless it accepts another type of file.

Is this need based on a playback quality issue or just trying to have the best audio possible?

I'm not too sure about compressor since I'm on a PC, but I know many encoding applications and MPEG2 codecs will spit out a muxed MPEG2 file with PCM (uncompressed) audio. Is there an option to use PCM? As far as I know it's uncompressed.
