    Hello,

    I got tired of rendering my dv cam videos to mpg files because it took
    too long for me to sit and wait, so I bought a dvd recorder:
    panasonic dmr-es10, and burn it to dvd-rw from by video cam.

    Then I rip it using dvd decrypter.
    I rename *.vob to *.mpg.

    (I make the chapters small enough so, I don't have files that exceed 1
    gig in size)

    I try to edit them in my computer(win XP) using Sony MY DVD or,
    my friend's Adobe Premier pro, but, neither cannot due to codec
    problems.

    The vob files or the dvd's or renamed vob files to mpg files I burned
    from the dvd-recorder plays on my computer without a hitch.

    How do I get a hold of this panasonic codec so that I can edit the
    mpgs and burn it into new dvd's using my DVD creators on my PC?

    Any help would be appreciated very much.
    Thanks.

    John

    the utility Gspot may help identify the codec required.

    Ok, I tried it. Then, my computer does not play the mpg file that I'm
    trying to edit.

    I'm gonna google "removing panasonic codec"!

    The shit on a 4.7 gig disk must be compressed because dvd decrypter comes up
    with about 9 gigs when it decrypts it for me. This seems to be the problem.
    The only thing that works is virtual dub mpeg2. I just save them as
    uncompressed avi files then use any codec after that.

    Don't think you can just rename a *.vob to *.mpg.
    Don't think you need dvd decrypter

    The easiest way I found to convert DVD to mpg is to use
    TMPGEnc DVD Author "add dvd filles", or open the video
    folder created by dvd decrypter with TMPGEnc DVD Author

    Check out videohelp.com for other vob to mpg.converters

    Also ISObuster is good to read UDF 1.02 files recorded on
    your standalone DVD Recorder that wont read on the PC
    if needed.

    You asked for the Codec, I showed you where you could find
    it. I never thought it would help, with .mpg, sense it is a DV
    Codec.

    Your stated process has some interesting possibilities. As I
    see it you are transferring your camera's DV to your PC via
    Firewire. Then editing it and transferring it back to your camera
    via Firewire, still as DV. Then feeding that to your standalone
    DVD Recorder via Firewire, to be made into a DVD. Is that
    right? Have you tried running the Firewire from your PC to the
    DVD Recorder directly?

    This process would preserve the digital nature and quality of
    your video all the way to the DVD Recorder and allow you to
    edit in the more versatile DV format. Even if you were to record
    to a RW disk and bring it back to your PC for authoring, no
    further encoding would be needed and the quality would be
    maintained.

    Luck;
    Ken
