Toast 10 and MPEG1



Hi all


I created a quicktime movie on the mac with snow leopard and discovered there was not enough programs to allow me to convert it to a format that could be read by windows machines and DVD players.


So after much investigation and searching it appeared that Toast 10 Titanium was the go. Dutifully paid, downloaded and installed. Now everytime I try to use the movie I created it tells me the MPEG1 codec is not installed. OK so off to the net again I go and find that if I download Perian this should fix the problem. Nada on that. http://forums.support.roxio.com/style_emot...default/mad.gif


So here is the scenario, I first created the presentation in Keynote and then took it into Quicktime to make a movie, Then I try to get it to work in Toast and Nada. Doesn't matter what I do it will not let me use Toast. I tried the Toast It for sub menu and still the same, movie is not compatible with this program. http://forums.support.roxio.com/style_emot...default/mad.gif


What are my options here, I have sent a number of emails to Roxio and nada from them either. Very Disappointed with that. I can only imagine if I tried to ask for a refund.


I am getting frustrated as the window of opportunity for this job is closing very fast and I have now been bashing my head against Toast for over a week now without success. http://forums.support.roxio.com/style_emot...default/huh.gif

What settings did you use when you created the QuickTime movie? Are you trying to make a video DVD and therefore using the DVD video setting in the Toast Video window? How does Toast describe the specs of your video when it is in the Video window or can't you get it to appear at all? When does the message about the MPEG1 codec appear? I'm confused because the MPEG1 codec is installed with QuickTime Player so it shouldn't be missing. Also, I don't know why an MPEG1 codec is even needed unless you are creating a Video CD.
