MPEG Streamclip does a better job in my opinion. I had trouble with clips converted using Mp4cam2avi when imported into various editors but the Streamclips conversions worked fine.

Maybe, but StreamClip requires QuickTime, MP4Cam2AVI doesn't.

The next thing - did you perform direct stream copy conversion or with video recompression?

Yes, TheTurk, do you meanyou converted to AVI using Streamclip? MP4Cam2AVI does not convert the video, it transfers it from the MP4 container to an AVI container, therefore it preserves every last bit of the original video (exact same quality).

Yep, it just causes problems when imported in editing programs.

No, sorry AVI files made from CG65 won't be DivX compatible, cause they will contain H.264 video. Use MP4Cam2AVIfor CG65 if you want to edit or play them on PC, but not for archiving.

And keep your original mp4's for better times . I think it's theoretically possible to make HD DVD's from these files without recompression, but HD DVDhardwareis quite expensive yet, and there is no such soft at this time (I think it will appear soon, and, probably, with my participation ).
Thanks graywolf,

That is my expectation and hold the migration from my C6 to the CG65, future HD2a, or something better. It will depend on the price drop of PS3 or HD DVD player.

BTW, someone lucky has the CG65 with PS3 or Toshiba HD DVD player could you help us to test it by burning the avi (or mp4) files to DVD-R to test the compatibility of those AVC H264 hi-end stuffs, thanks.:|
