    What file format do I save for a Mac?

    I run VRD TVS4 on Win7. I am saving and editing from a Tivo Premier, usually as a Tivo file (h.264 or mpeg). I want to save something that can be run on a macbook air. It's less than a year old, so I suppose the OS is relatively current. That's all I know about it. Since I've had very...

    WMP 12 reports wrong length sometimes in h.264, can't scroll past it

    Sometimes when I recode a TiVo premier file to a TiVo h.264 file, WMP 12 (running Win7) will open and play the file fine, but it will show an artificially short length. An example would be a 29 minute program that opens fine as a TiVo MPEG, but will show as a 9 minute file when recoded. It...

    WMP - weird one

    I just saved a tivo file as H.264 after editing. The saved version plays perfectly in VRD, and it also plays (as usual) in WMP. A lot of times, after I save the final edit I will "right click, open with" and choose WMP because it opens faster, and I just want to see if it plays independently of...

    H.264 codec question

    After saving a few Tivo premier files in H.264 Tivo format, I can't see any video in WMP 12 (Win 7/64). Audio and video in VRD H.264 Suite is perfectly fine, but that's not what I use as a video player. I realize a codec for WMP is missing. In searching for codecs to download, there are a...

    A question about file formats...

    Is there a good reference guide for explaining file formats and how they can be used? Also, which ones to use, when? And some general guides about what parameters will have which effects? I have searched the manual, and on line. I am really new to this (can't you tell? :) ), but everything...

    File size doubles after cropping?

    I'm only a few days into this program, and learning quickly, but I'm sure I must have missed something obvious. Most of my experimenting is with shows recorded off of a TiVo Premier. Some in HD, some not. In this case, I have a couple of old B&W classic TV shows I have been playing with...

    Which file type to save as...

    I am playing with the VRD suite and it looks like the ticket for me (great forum, too, btw...) but I have some questions. I am new to video editing, and I have a ton of old source material waiting for me (both personally shot video, and DVR stuff). My question about file types is this. On one...
