FAQ (Frequently asked questions)

Where to buy / upgrade to MPEG2 Works 5?

There is a Store link at the top, main, menu and on the bottom menu which will take you to MPEG2 Works 5 Kagi store where you can purchase the application. Registered users of version 4 can upgrade to version 5 for modest fee of 10$ also in my Kagi store following the link from "Check for updates" within MPEG2 Works 4.

Do I need MPEG2 Component for Quick Time?

MPEG2 Component for Quick Time is not essential for MPEG2 Works 5 but it is highly recomanded if you mainly use the app for encoding the clean Quick Time formats. That component serves as a decoder of input file for MPEG encoder and also with that component installed you will be able to open and play MPEG2 files with Quick Time. Please note that you need that component only on Mac OSX 10.5 and 10.6. On later Mac OSX systems it comes preinstalled so you dont have to buy it and install. You can pusrchase MPEG2 Component on Apple site.

Some MKV files goes out of sync after encoding/conversion?

If that happens please use freeware MKVtoolsnix or MKVmerge app (find both on macupdate.com) to remultiplex your MKV. As you probably aware there is a lot of tools for making MKV files and, where major of them works good, there is also some which works very poorly. Among other informations MKV container stores the FPS info (video track frame rate) and usually that info is valid but sometimes is wrong. Open your MKV in Quick Time (make sure you have installed Perian component), check the frame rate and input it manually in MKVmerge app after loading your file and then just remultiplex it. After few moments you will get new MKV which will play and decode like it should.

Does it works with AVCHD files and other camera recording formats?

Yes, it works with AVCHD files without problems. Basically, anything that you can play with Play option within MPEG2 Works 5 it can be processed with encoder and converter. There is a LOT of various camera recording formats out there and, as you probably guessed already, almost all of them varies from one model to another although they uses same movie container. If you run onto troubles with your camera files please contact me via support email address and send me a small sample of your recording to check it out and let you know what to do.
