    So on Wikipedia, SUPER is listed as an easy to use converter for DPG files.

    I'm currently using EZbuilder 2007 1.50beta2 (a Chinese software) to convert DPG files, and it works great. So I'm wondering, has anyone tried using the SUPER software to do the conversion? How is the result? Should I switch?

    Never tried it, but my recommendation is still BatchDPG.

    It works, though you may get slightly better quality and lower filesizes with BatchDPG.

    u use SUPER for everything, i dont waste time installing smaller other programs. i just keep updating super, and using it for everything, once u find the right settings, super is perfect:D


    i didnt tamper with it too much, as i dont use the ds for video, however, it was simple to put one video on (just so i can try..) but i never got to compare it with anything.

    I love Super for every video conversion, including dpg file for nds.I had some problem with BatchDPG some video works but some video don't on NDS. And always need to hunt down some specific video codec to get video working. Bury that in the past and all I need is Super it comes with all codec you'll ever need easy and simple.

    I just discovered Super. The program is the best. I have tried batchDGP, but could never get it to work. I used super to convert avi's, and a mp4 with no problems at all. Just install, drop and drag your files, choose what type of output, hit convert, and sit back, and wait for it to finish. Plus the program is free. [​IMG]

    I have a problem on super converter when i finished converting to dpg and play it on dpgplay or dpgshow it only plays for 1-2 seconds. But when i play it on super's player or the "play the last rendered file" option the video plays fine but no audio. I tried playing it on my dslite with moonshell 17.1 and its the same as dpgshow with only 1-2 seconds of playback.

    Does somebody have any problems like this or anybody know why is this happening. It'll be really great full if somebody can shed a light on this, I've figuring out how to do this for a while now and still no luck.

    I have had problems with Super - to convert to DPG your computer must pass its compliance test, if not problems may occur. I have no problems if I use DVD shrink to take off the film/program off as a single VOB. Then use super to convert this to DPG. I have tried to convert other formats but usually have lip sync issues or faltering video. Most important with Super is the compliance test!!

    I also recommend BatchDPG for NDS videos.

    For every other format, I use MediaCoder.

    The right choice DPG conversion is highly dependant on your version of moonshell.

    SUPER encodes movies into an older version of DPG, DPG2 i believe.
    BatchDPG can do DPG2 (and maybe DPG3 in newer versions)
    DPGtools does DPG3 (the latest versions at least)

    if your DPG version is wrong it can cause sync problems with moonshell.
    It is recommended to use DPG3 files with Moonshell 1.71

    Sorry if it's a bit vague, i can't remember all the specifics.
    Personally i just always us DPGtools, it's trustworthy and the lesser options makes things easier to use.

    If you're looking for ease of use i'd say DPGtools is even easier than SUPER.
    SUPER however is a decent program for other types of video conversions (non DPG).

    SUPER can convert almost any video type. I don't have alot of video's on my card, but when I did, SUPER worked great. It did seem like sometimes the audio got out of sync with moonshell, but it might have been related to what OSW mentioned, as the video ran perfectly on Sakura.

    IMO, BatchDPG works much better than SUPER, at least quality wise.

    image quality wise are almost nearly the same, but BatchDPG got bad color rendering....
    especially when converting anime

    overall i prefer BatchDPG if you want to convert faster/small file size

    So the quality is almost the same but when I try to convert using Super (even though its only 2 seconds long) it seems to have better quality than BatchDPG when played in DPGtools (its so clean not pixelly) i know that it changes quality when played on the ds but I haven't tried the playing it on my DS cause it seems to be pointless.

    Could anyone put screenies from both programs, if possible played on dpgtools and ds.
