Mp4 issues

Postby ShiroNekoHime » Mon Dec 17, 2007 4:16 pm

Hey I was wondering, how do you get an mp4 to work on WMM? It won't show up on the import video window. Virtual Dub can't see them either. What do I do?

I think there's a codec that supports mp4 that is H264

you'll probably have to use avisynth + vdubmod

IIRC, FFmpegsource can handle .mp4

It's frame-accurate, DirectShowSource isn't. I don't know if that'll cure the stuttering, but at the very least it's a better way of handling the video (provided the thing isn't VFR and you're trying to preserve audio sync).

I suggest just converting the mp4 file to a mp3 file so WMM can use it. It's what I do and use.

Free to download, Easy to use. Try it out.

Can also convert a avi (or wmv etc) file to a mp3 (or other audio), meaning it would have the audio of the clip, but not the video.

Good luck with solving your problem, hope you can finish your AMV.
