This is the help page for the MPEG converter tool, which is part of the KarVCD toolset. The purpose of this tool is to encode AVI files to MPEG so that they can be written to a VCD.

The MPEG Converter Dialog

Operation

 


The MPEG Converter Dialog

Let us take a look at the MPEG converter window fields and buttons:

At the top of the MPEG converter dialog there is the Files group of controls. In this group there are two identical sets of controls, one for the input AVI file and another for the output MPEG. Each set has the following elements:

       File name. This field shows the file name.

       Browse. This button lets you select another file.

Follows a description of the remaining elements:

       Progress bar. This control shows the progress as the file is being converted.

       Convert. This button initiates the conversion process.

       Abort. This button stops the conversion process.

       Play. This button lets you view the output file that was created during the conversion process.

       Status. This field shows you the time already converted versus the total time.

       Help. This button shows you the file that you are now reading.

       Close. This button closes the MPEG Converter Dialog and returns you to the Main Window.

 


Operation

The operation of the MPEG converter is straightforward: You select the input and output files and hit Convert.

When you hit the Play button to view the result of the conversion, the program will activate whichever external player is defined for MPEG files.
