I searched through this forum but could not find anything that would help me.
I have a Tivo Premiere. There are some video files that I would like to transfer onto it and play.
I just started playing around with the video editing software called "VirtualDub." I have loaded all of the main plug ins for it that I could find in order to beef up its capabilities.
Some of the video files on my computer will not play in my Premiere(such as mkv files). So I used VirtualDub to convert these mkv files(and a few other things) into avi files.
At first, the output file sizes were GIGANTIC. VirtualDub would take something that was approximately 52MB in size and covert it into an avi output file of 1.5 gig.
I adjusted the setting in VirtualDub to "Direct Stream Copy" and that successfully reduced the output file size down to a much smaller size. These output files do play fine in my computer video players(MPCHC, VLC, etc.)
When I use Tivo Desktop to transfer these avi files onto the Tivo Premiere, it DOES play them. However, there is a TON of jitter. Severe jitter.
Any thoughts, ideas, suggestions on how to correct this?
p.s., in case it makes any difference, here are my PC system specs
windows 7 pro 64 bit
8 gigs of DDR2 ram
Dell - 2.8 Ghz Dual core processor
really good video card(Nvidia 440, or something)
also..... I am using the 32 bit version of VirtualDub
