HDX4 Movie Creator FAQ
- What is HDX4?
HDX4 is a MPEG-4 compatible video codec that makes it possible to store
high-quality video in files that are significantly smaller than those used on DVDs.
- Why should I use HDX4?
Well, we think there is a very good reason to use HDX4:
We think it is the best and fastest available codec at the moment. Of course this is a personal
assessment but we definitely think you should give HDX4 a try... ;-)
- How can I encode in HDX4?
You can use our "HDX4 Movie Creator" but also any
other DirectShow or VfW (Video for Windows) compatible software product.
- Can I use the Windows Media Player to watch HDX4 compatible movies?
with any player supporting the DirectShow or Video for Windows interfaces.
That inludes the Windows Media Player.
- I would like to watch a movie using HDX4, but I don't hear anything.
HDX4 is a video codec, no audio codec. We deliver several audio codecs with our
installation packages but please take a look at our help center under "Audio formats" for more details.
- What is this stuff like B-frames, GMC or quarter-pel?
- Audio and video is out of sync when I play movies with HDX4. What can I do?
In the decoder of HDX4 there is a function called 'Force overlay mode'. Depending on the operating system
and the DirectShow version you are using, please try to switch this function on or off.
- What is 'Optimize for film source'?
This feature is a new and revolutionary, no other codec we are aware off has this at the moment. For your reference:
Cinematic productions are filmed on celluloid and have a natural graininess. Depending on the film material
experts can for instance still tell the difference between Super-8 and 35 mm material even on a DVD.
Video without grain and with many single-colored areas can be encoded more easily but it looks less natural.
You have to find out yourself what you like best. Just try encoding with and without simulated grain.
- Which video formats are supported?
The Movie Creator supports all formats which have corresponding filters in the system.
- Is it possible to convert CSS protected Video-DVDs with the Movie Creator?
No, because of legal issues here in Germany, this is not possible.
- The predefined profiles are not compatible with my hardware devices. What can I do?
It's possible to change all settings in the menue entry "Settings" in the "Profiles".
The predefined were made from us in a way we think that the profiles fit in most of the cases.
But generally it's possible to optimize both speed and quality in the settings.
- Is it possible to make video files with more than one audio track or more than one subtitle language?
No, not yet, but we will release soon an update...
- It it possible to add chapter information to the output files?
Not yet, but this feature will be integrated in the future.
- The created files using the PSP profile have strange names. Is this correct?
The Playstation PSP needs special file names and special directory names.
The files need to be in the directory \MP_ROOT0MNV01 and have to be named M4Vxxxxx.MP4.
Please note that xxxxx stands for a five digit long progressional number, e.g. "M4V00001.MP4".
- Is it possible to convert movies to 3GP files for mobile phones?
Yes, this is no problem at all. Predefined in the "Mobile" profiles is a fixed size of 128 x 96.
Depending of your mobile phone, the sizes 176 x 144 and 320 x 240 are also possible.
My mobile phone plays only 3GP files with the maximmum size of x MB. Ist it possible to split the output files?
Yes, this is possible. Just enter in the "Settings" menue the "Splitting size". Please enter there a value in MB.
- Playing a 3GP movie on my mobile phone results in frame drops and stuttering sound. What can I do?
Several (mostly older) mobile phones have not that good CPU inside. You can try to lower the "Encoding Bitrate"
of the HDX4 Encoder and the bitrate of the "AMR Audio Codec".
- My mobile phone supports only the 3GP2 format, not the 3GP one.
Is this also supported from the Movie Creator?
Yes, the Movie Creator is also capable of making 3GP2 kompatible files. Just change the entry "Container type" in
the settings from "3GP" to "3GP2. Predefined setting is "3GP".
- I have a 3GP file and like to convert it. Is it possible to do this using
the Movie Creator?
Yes, the Movie Creator can use 3GP files as source.
- How can I specify the title information for a PSP movie?
The Movie Creator automatically adds the title information. The title details are taken from the file name,
the name of the DVD-Video or the name of the folder containing the DVD-Video.
