    Hello everyone,

    after converting all my futurama episodes to m3 movie player format (what was it, gbv?), which took about 48 hours on my ancient PC i learned that this format quite sucks, even in high quality mode, because of more than poor sound. It wasn't even synchronised.

    So after searching the forum for a better way i stumbled upon the moonshell video format (dps?). So, before hopping on my bicycle-power-supply for my retarded PC, is this format really better?

    And further more, is there another way to encode this format besides batch.dps? I can't get that to run because not having some necessary components like .net.

    Any n00bie help for me would be appreciated!

    Have a good time!

    I posted this in the gba forum:
    actually as far as i know, its dpg format [​IMG]
    For my ds ive converted in this format before, and the quality is quite good and sound is good too. you can get a program called "batchdpg" (find it on google) make sure you get v 1.0 or higher, its way easier to use.

    Thanks. But as you might have read, the batch.dpg thing was a known for me. I don't have avisynth + net framework on my PC so i'm looking for an alternative.

    But thanks for your help anyway,
    Largo

    Yes you're right, i installed avisynth, which was quick and easy and the encoder worked flawlessly.
    For those interested:
    a usual futurama episode:

    divx = 179 MB, dvd quality
    gbv = 139mb + 13mb for sound, very poor audio
    dpg = 59 mb with excellent video and audio

    Thanks for you help,
    Largo
