Tip & How-To about Philips DivX DVD Player
'VirtualDub was originaly codec for MPG4 video with XVid and DivX codes but it can be used with the MPG fcchandle plug-in to open an MPG2 video stream and then use the same Logo removal filters designed for AVI all you then need to do is export the frames TMPGEnc to produce a HQ MPG2 video stream for DVD authoring.
USING VIRTUALDUB FOR LOGO REMOVAL
To use VirtualDub as a FrameServer you must install the DLL files to enable this, to do this double click the AuxSetup.exe file in the VirtualDub folder.
Once this has been done all you need to do is Start the FrameServer in VirtualDub's menu the TMPGEnc v2.525.64.184 FE it has its own VFAPI Client plugin that will read the VFP that VirtualDub's FrameServer will produce. All you need to do then is to select a suitable template to encode your DeLogo video into DVD standard MPEG file Variable Bitrate will give you the best file quality. Unfortunately this MPG2 encoder will only allow you to encode the audio track into LPCM (large), MP1 or MP3 if your original audio track is AC3 (dolby) you may experience audio lag errors and have to compensate using an audio lag in the Virtualdub
I then use ConvertXtoDVD4 from VSOsoftware to author the DVD as my preferred choice.
You will notice that the FrameServer number of Frames Served will always be slightly ahead of the receiving FrameClient this is normal if the Client only recieved some of the Frames it is likely to fail on the MPG2 conversion.
If the MPG2 encoder that you are using won't allow you to open the default VDF file that is used then you need to enable the AVIProxy by importing the proxyon.reg tweak included with VirtualDub then start the FrameServer then open the AVI file in your mpg2 editor
You can also use these two alternative codec free encoders from RealMedia and WindowsMedia if TMPGEnc is not for your needs.
