View Full Version : Converting AVI to MP4 Not Working

06-12-2018, 09:09 AM

I've just installed a trial version of your Video Converter and it's not working for me. I have tried twice and it failed both times. I'm attempting to convert an AVI (original miniDV recording) to MP4 (H.264) but it fails. The Converter gives me the following error log:

Error converting to MP4 (H264), 'D:\Video\My Videos\winDV.05-07-02_02-45.00_type-2.avi' to 'F:\My Videos\zzpanasonic PV-GS15 camcorder\wedding vid_professional\dBPowerAmp 1.0\winDV.05-07-02_02-45.00_type-2.mp4'
[dvvideo @ 0000000000466c80] Concealing bitstream errors
Last message repeated 3040 times

And when i play back the video, i see a black screen, but i hear the audio just fine.

I know that the original AVI file is OK, but it won't convert. Any ideas?

No, other AVI files fail to convert as well.

As a test convert to 'MOV', does that play correct? If not do any files convert correctly? if so try convert that file to 'AVI' then AVI >> mp4

Sorry, but it doesn't work no matter what i do. I've tried converting to MOV - same errors. Tried converting from AVI to AVI - same errors. It doesn't seem to like my video files for some reason. And i know the video files are not corrupt.

The videos are the raw format from a miniDV tape.
Res= 720x480
Bitrate= 28Mbps
AR= 4:3
Frame Rate= 29.97

AVI is a container format, much like WAVE (audio), this Panasonic compression format is not supported, sorry.

This is extremely disappointing, as I purchased this specifically to use avi-dv files. Considering the popularity of the format not all that long ago. I'm more than surprised. Do you foresee support in the future?

You could try the mp4 (Copy, no encoding) to copy the stream without decoding.
