This version seems to work fine for me. I've compiled it from your src.rpm on
I just have a couple of small notes on documentation for mpeg2enc: it has some
typos that probably is better to fix before release.
1) mpeg2enc --help
Set pre-defined mux format fmt.
[0 = Generic MPEG1, 1 = standard VCD, 2 = VCD,
3 = Generic MPEG2, 4 = standard SVCD, 5 = user SVCD,
Target decoders video buffer size in KB (default 46)
Probably 2 should be "2 = user VCD". And I'm not sure about video buffer size
- I always thought that it is dependant on selected format.
2) man mpeg2enc
-f|--format 3 - Generic MPEG2.
A basic MPEG-1 profile that lets most parameters be adjusted for par-
Shouldn't this be "A basic MPEG-2 profile..."?
lp Specify which quantization matrices to use instead of the defaults
(which can be specified by using "-K default"). Using "-K hi-res" is
identical to using the -H option. The value kvcd uses the Kvcd.Net
matrices from http://www.kvcd.net and the value tmpgenc invokes the
TMPGEnc matrices from http://www.tmpgenc.net/e_main.html. On average
(and it is somewhat source material dependent) the tmpgenc tables
reduce the average bitrate about 10% and the kvcd tables about 16% com-
pared to the default tables.
This paragraph is very strange - missing spaces, unexpected linebreaks etc.
Probably words about kvcd matrix should be a bit different - to avoid any
problems. What they say on their site:
"The KVCD "Notch" Quantization matrix may be used on any hardware or software
encoder capable of accepting custom tailored matrixes.
It is optimized for space/quality, and has also been optimized to reduce
visible DCT blocks on low lit/dark scenes.
The KVCD "Notch" Quantization Matrix is Copyright (c) 2002, 2003 of Softronex
Corporation. It may be used freely on any product, but it must be clearly
stated that the matrix in use is "KVCD "Notch" Quantization Matrix". There
are no other restrictions on it's use."
mpeg2enc --help states that it is "1..31".
mpeg2enc --help states that it is "0|1".
mpeg2enc --help states that it is "0.0..5".
And some command line options mentioned in --help are not present in the man -
though I consider this better than to have different explanations for the
