Did you ever find a solution to getting your files encoded properly?

Recently I have been asked to also provide files to Amazon, but they have been rejected due to the file having a 'variable' frame rate mode. This has sent me on a venture of learning all about a variety of encoders.

I initially used Handbrake (hey, it's free!) and am now using Adobe Media Encoder WITH a trial of x264 Pro ($300) in hopes that the mp4 will not have a variable frame rate of 'variable'. My initial results we successful, but the audio and video file came out separate and not multiplexed. Based on certain settings the option is or is not available for multiplexing.

I think I finally found the right combo, but stereo audio only goes up to 320 kbps. It seems that if I select surround 5.1, the encode fails. Well, perhaps it should be as the original sound is stereo.

What settings (audio and other) did you end up using? And what program did you end up encoding with?

Any help would be MUCH appreciated!
