Re: MPEG-2 to DVD Question

it would really help to know the actual specs of the original .mpg files...use GSpot if yer on a PC, MpegStreamclip on a Mac and post the results here

correct...its like taking a mp3 and converting it to wav, yer still not gonna get back whats been lost due to the original compression...
