Three-letter Searches

Question

Okay guys, the new forum is pretty and all... but you can't search for things under four characters. Well, all Windows file extensions are three characters! This means I can't search for things like "mp4" (I was going to try to figure out WHY Roxio dropped mp4 support in Roxio 8!!!)

Creator 7 supported mp4 files just fine.

 

My camera takes movies in .mp4 format (a Sony M1). With 3ivx installed, I could not only view my camera's mp4 movies and import them into projects (they were an unknown file format type without 3ivx), but I could also encode movies into .mp4 format as well.

 

This functionality is priceless when talking about the new video iPod. With Creator 7's mp4 abilities, I could use Roxio to create mp4 movies for the iPod in one step.

 

Now, in Creator 8, I can view the mp4 files, and I can put them into a project, but I cannot encode output files into that format.

 

I have spoken with Jan Devos, one of the 3ivx developers ( jan.devos at 3ivx.com ) and he said they have been trying to contact Roxio to find out what the issue is, but have received no reply. Please take a few minutes and drop him an email.

 

Seriously--if Roxio doesn't fix the mp4 support issue, Roxio will be useless to an exploding group of windows-using video-bloggers who create video content exclusively for the video iPod. Please, for a user who has been with your product for many many years, get a hold of Jan and try to work out this issue.

 

Thanks,

Susan

I've made a change, you can now use three letter search terms (but not 1 or 2 characters)

Creator 7 only supported MPEG-4 content inside WMV/DivX files, and not .MP4 files either as far as I know.....

Try searching by adding a "dot" in front of the three letters as in .mp4. I searched a board for .pm3 and got a hit.

I had already tried the .mp4 after I read the post and got an error message. However, now that we've posted a few messages about it, I can find it. Must be the fact that it didn't exist before since the only find is these posts.

Hmmmm......

 

That only works if the person has put a dot before the mp4. When I did a search for .mp4, I got your quote, but not the original posters "mp4"

 

This new forum is going to take some getting used to........
