Will iMovie handle MPEG-1/2, or just Quicktime?
I currently like my setup - TiVo, outputting to a VisionTech MVCast
MPEG-2 card in my Windows 2000 machine (AMD 700Mhz, 256mb, 20G HD);
I then use FLASKMpeg and VirtualDub to change the DVD-quality (and
BIG) MPEG file down to MPEG-1 resolution and quality, then either
convert to DivX ;-) (hacked MS codec .avi) or burn VCDs off of the
MPEG-1 files. Lets me archive TV shows nicely. Some people might
bitch about the quality, but MPEG-1 is VHS-quality and good enough
for anything I need.
I finally got software that will let me offload the MPEG-2 to MPEG-1
conversion to the Ultra 60, too. I'm debating moving the capture
card over there as well, since it also has Solaris/SPARC drivers.
