    Hi all,

    Maybe you can help me with the following task. I have to create content
    which has exactly the following properties:

    - File format: MPEG4
    - Visual Profile: Simple
    - Level: L0 or L3

    Most of the programs which are capable of recoding video do not specify
    exactly which profiles and Levels they are using but only give general
    infos like resolution or fps.

    The only codec I have found where you can enter directly which
    Profile/Level combination you want to use is the XviD encoder. But this
    is a pure encoder and either the software I have tried together with
    XviD produces .AVI containers or uses internal encoders :-(

    Do you have any suggestions for me how to create that content?

    Thanks a lot

    I'm more an AVC MPEG-4 guy myself but if you want/need
    to use ISO MPEG-4 you can use the TMPGEnc 4.0 XPress
    encoder like I do. It will set you back up to $100, but it makes
    all kinds of encoding a snap. It will do Simple Levels 0 - 3 and
    Advanced Simple Levels 0 - 5. ( I only see AAC audio encoding
    for that format though.)

    You could try "Super c" or one of the many other free
    software conversion programs that have sprung up for
    3GPP, iPod, and Game console formats. Some of them
    may do what you describe, I know 4.0 XPress can.

    I'm more an AVC MPEG-4 guy myself but if you want/need
    Thanks a lot, TMPGEnc fits exactly to my needs. I tried "Super" and
    other tools yet, but they just allow to define some attributes like
    resolution and fps, they do not guarantee that the output is according
    to a special profile and level.

    OK, TMPGEnc does not guarantee it, but at least it promises to do so

    They have a demo for TMPGEnc 4.0 XPress, so be sure to
    try it out before you decide to buy it. (Something makes me
    think you will be, though.)
