So i have a client asking for a MREC video file.

I have never heard of it, have googled and can't find anything, so have come to the conclusion they MUST be meaning MPEG files.

Just thought i would double check that no one here has heard of MREC files?

Never heard of it ever.

In other video related questions: We've just bought a new Sony HDD Handycam. It spits out MPG files, which I have identified to be the following:

Video : 0.00 B, 9100 Kbps, 25.0 fps, 720*576 (4:3), MPG2 = MPEG 2 (SVCD/DVD)
Audio : 0.00 B, 256 Kbps, 48000 Hz, 2 channels, 0x2000 = AC3 DVM [0x80], Supported

I can play these in WMP happily, unsure if that's because of the codecs I have installed or if that's by default. Problem comes when I go to slap it in Vista Windows Movie Maker, it only picks up the audio track. Bit of a pain since that's what our teachers/students use, replacing it is a problem of both money, and training.

Any longshot ideas, or am I going to have to find some way of converting these files?

Yeah, I haven't looked there or on the CD yet, was winging for a short answer :>

Last time I had to grab stuff off the Sony site a few weeks back, it took me 6 hours at about 2kb/sec per file Neutral

I have never used windows vista movie maker, but i am guessing the problem is with the mpeg being multiplexed? so the movie maker can not read the video and audio seperately?

Converting it to a WMV file, which i assume would work, wouldn't be too hard.

Can the Handycam not save the files as anything other than mpeg? like AVI?

Couple of people at work have these, so i will ask around for any tips.

Yeah, the software that comes with it (now that i've bothered to look :> ) allows export to WMV, but if any of your guys happen to know of a better little wee non-bloated app, i'd be keen.

looks like we can work around it anyway.

After a quick look, this converter looks like it could be what you want?

MREC - If you didn't find anything in a google I'd say it doesn't exist.

One of them HDD models I presume Kris?

It kind of exists.

The client was just dumb.

It is a specific video type presentation file that one internet site provides.

We upload the uncompressed file to the site, and they make it.

What i don't understand though is, the client IS the internet site, yet they asked for a MREC file with specified specs etc?

Weirdos.
