Can't compress Mpeg to the right specs
on Sep 27, 2012 at 6:57:37 pm


I'm working on this promo video for a theatre company and have compressed it in different formats for all the different places that is being shown. No problems so far.

Well for the last one I had to do, they sent me these specs:

Format: MPG 1 or MPG 2
Max. resolution: 640x480
Max. bitrate: 4.000 bit /sec
FPS: 25

I use an uncompressed avi file rendered from AfterEffects and I use Adobe Media Encoder for compressing to Mpeg. (Although I have tried other converters too)

So I sent the video but it wouldn't play, played a bit with settings sent a second version same thing.
So I asked for one of their previous videos that plays well on those screens and they sent me one with the following specs:

Format : MPEG-PS
File size : 25.0 MiB
Duration : 1mn 11s
Overall bit rate mode : Variable
Overall bit rate : 2 943 Kbps

ID : 224 (0xE0)
Format : MPEG Video
Format version : Version 1
Format settings, BVOP : Yes
Format settings, Matrix : Default
Duration : 1mn 11s
Bit rate mode : Variable
Bit rate : 2 884 Kbps
Width : 640 pixels
Height : 480 pixels
Display aspect ratio : 1.422
Frame rate : 25.000 fps
Color space : YUV
Bit depth : 8 bits
Scan type : Progressive
Compression mode : Lossy
Bits/(Pixel*Frame) : 0.376
Stream size : 24.5 MiB (98%)

I have no idea how to do this. The aspect ratio of the video is a bit wider than the usual 4:3 but it's not as wide as 16:9 and I have never seen it before.

Any ideas how to do this?

Thank you in advance

I work on Windows 7 Home Premium version 6.1

Adobe AE Cs5.5
Adobe Media Encoder Cs5.5

I'm also trying different converters like Movavi 10 etc
