hi the-kille:

I have an A-HD and have tested several ways to use the MOV clips with video editing programs to burn family movies in DVD format. I think Aiptek´s choice to use MOV file container for the H264 encoded video clips causes problems with almost all Windows video editing programs and video players. Aiptek´s CD program to install a codec to view MOV files with Windows Media viewer does not help to get the files edited and burnt to a DVD disk.

I have found it´s better to transcode the MOV files to MPEG 2 format, keeping the HD (1280x720)resolution. I find that conversion to MPGHQ at 6000 bit rate compares well to MOV at 4000.

A conversion program like [email protected] (freeware) with the paramenters shown on the picture below, allows to batch process your MOV files. Converted MOV video filesto MPEG format can be viewed with several video players and are easyto edit.

You can use the MPEG clips at 1280x720 to burn a DVD either by editing your video files with payware programs like PINACLE VS ,ULEAD VS, MAGIX ,etc or if you just want to burn your un- edited video clips in DVD use freeware programs like DVDStyler, DVDFlick, 007DVDAuthor etc.

I list the links to get those the freeware programs. in the same sites you´ll find user guides.
To download [email protected] converter click http://www.erightsoft.net/super.html
To download DVDStyler DVD author click http://www.dvdstyler.de
To download K-Lite video/audio codecs click http://www.codecguide.com/download_kl.htm

Note: K-Lite will install Media Clasic Player a program that replaces WMP and plays all audio and video formats. I would like to mention that with this approach you don´t need to install Quicktime or the Codec provided by Aiptek

I don't like the ideia of converting to MPEG2,

when the source is in MPEG4

I use Mp4Cam2AVI when needed and afterwards

I convert the vid to X264 using Magix
