I’m looking for a procedure to convert MOV files from the panasonic lumix lx2 that will play back on WDTV (Gen 1, latest firmware).
By default the movies do not play on the WDTV. I’ve tried the supplied software that comes with the WDTV without successful results. The audio is simply corrupted after transcoding.
The movies are MJPEG + PCM STEREO codec. they *might* be VBR audio. In every trial, the audio is severly delayed. I’ve tried offsetting the audio in with mkvmerge and MediaCoder with no results.
The best result was converting to an AVI using the LAME audio encoder with VBR selected. The audio is still off, but not as much as other trials. The only problem is that I cannot FFwd or Rewind the AVI on WDTV.
If anyone is interested in tackling this issue, I would gladly send a movie created on the panasonic lumix lx2 for transcoding purposes.
