My guess is the Mac is reading it wrong.
Did the equipment play the file?
Check the properties (info) of the file in a DVD Player on your 'puter. eg. I use Power DVD
GSpot http://gspot.headbands.com/ will tell you what kind of MPEG it is. :)
Thanks for ya'lls help on this issue.
We hadn't tried to load it into the TV station equipment (Soloist) yet.
We didn't want to put an unviewable piece in the station's loop of shows.
I did use the Gspot program and it identified it as an MPEG-2.
Thanks Ruud for the solution.
There may still be the question of why his Mac is reading it wrong.
Apple's QuickTime player also reports a 720x480 movie as "640x480". So I wouldn't be surprised if it didn't know the difference between MPEG-1 and MPEG-2. ;)
They dont show you that in the 'Mac versus PC' TV adverts that Apple present.
Those ads are funny, but there's a LOT they don't show you.
We did put it on the station equipment and it work. I think you are right about the Apple showing the wrong MPEG. I'm now trying to tweak the encoder settings because the sound is dropping out at places where I think the timeline is complicated. I don't know of any way to paste a screen shot in here otherwise I'd post the results of Gspot's analysis of the mpeg file.
