Projects / MPEG2-Movie


Mpeg2 Movie is a complete set of tools for encoding MPEG-2 and MPEG-1 movies with video and stereo sound. It can create streams with very low bitrates as well as streams very high professional bit rates. It also supports YUV 4:2:2 for high quality. Its components were collected from obscure locations around the Internet, optimized for MMX, lower bitrates, and documented with step by step instructions.


Recent releases

    Release Notes: Compresses MPEG-2 using YUV 4:2:2 compression for higher quality. Faster mplexlo. Some targets moved to i686 subdirectories to allow easier platform migration.

    •  12 Feb 2001 22:28

      Release Notes: Insertion of optimizations into the parallel encoder; it is blinding fast on dual CPU's, with improved fixed bitrate quality.

      •  22 Jan 2001 23:11

        Release Notes: This release adds a 3rd generation MPEG transcoder. It compiles and runs on Alpha.

        •  27 Nov 2000 21:12

          Release Notes: SMP utilization, use of direct YUV transfers whenever possible, MPEG to MPEG transcoding, DCT optimization, and double and triple speed improvements on dual processors.

          •  28 Aug 2000 19:29

            Release Notes: Optimizations for very low bitrate encoding were made.

            This project has become merged into Cinelerra (, a much larger video editing and production project (also supercedes Broadcast 2000).

            The download link still works for those who want to use the original software without the much higher hardware requirements of Cinelerra.
