Merging M2V and MP2 elemental streams back into MPEG 2

0

Well, I use TMPGEnc Creator to encode my MPEG2 streams. DVD-Labs really likes to have the audio and video streams split into M2V for the video and M2A for the audio (sometimes called MP2 if it is encoded in MPEG2 audio). But, iPod Videola really likes either the complex MPEG2 or VOB files, so I need to recombine them. I haven’t found a utility that does this yet. TMPGEnc Plus does this, but not the cut down Creator, so instead I hack it by using “DVD-Lab”:http://mediachance/dvdlab to create a DVD, this makes a VOB which I can use with “Videola”:http://videola.com.

“Videohelp”:http://www.videohelp.com/tools?dvdauthorfeatures=2 has a list of authoring tools that support elemental streams and that can combine them. I tried DVDAUthorGUI but have to admit I was stymied by its user interface. IFOEdit also looks interesting as does its sister “VOBEdit”:http://ifoedit.wh.fr0zen.com/

Confused yet. I am, so hopefully this post will help me a month from now when I forget it :_)
