v2.7: Need help getting MPEG4 output
I've been trying to generate H.264 mp4 files using CamStudio v2.7 r316, and haven't been able to figure out how.
Ideally, I'd like to generate an .mp4 file directly from CamStudio. If needed, I'm open to generating an AVI file that QuickTime Pro can then read in, and generate .mp4 from there.
I first tried x264vfw - H.264/MPEG-4 AVC codec. This generates an .mp4 with H.264 video, but no audio. A
separate AVI file contains the audio, but no video. I tried different settings, but still have this fundamental problem.
Next, I tried ffdshow video encoder. Only the MJPEG and FFV1 encoders run to completion without errors. The
MJPEG creates Motion JPEG video, which QuickTime doesn't seem to like. FFV1 creates an empty AVI file, with the
audio in a separate WAV file.
I also tried XVid MPEG codec. QuickTime does not display video (but identifies it as XVID). I have installed the plug-in,
but can't get QuickTime to recognize/use it.
The CamStudio Lossless codec v1.5 DOES create an AVI file with video and audio, but this must be played in the CS player.
Any suggestions on workarounds for the x264vfw encoder? Or suggestions on how to get QT to recognize XVID?
XVID doesn't have a control panel type interface like X264 does, so I'm not sure how to enable the decoder.
Is there a CS Lossless codec plug in for QuickTime? (I can't find one with google searches).
I'm working under Windows 7 32-bit. FWIW, I started with CS v2.6, but couldn't get the x264 or ffshow encoders
recognized when added. CS v2.6 only saw XVID encoder. My forum searches got me past the v2.7 DLL install issue, but
I haven't been able to resolve the other issues I have.
Any help you can provide would be GREATLY appreciated. I've been trying test after test to identify the issues, but have
run out of things to try!
