Obsolete software

For memory, here are software I used in the past for my VideoCD Workshop:

  File Web Software Release System
Codec: PICVideo File Pegasus Imaging MJPEG PICVideo 2.10.2.20 Windows 98se and Windows 2000

I decided to replace this codec as from January 8th, 2001 by Indeo 5.11 codec which gives identical or even better results after MPEG-1 encoding and which offers a compression ratio more than 3 times superior.

 
MPEG-1 encoding:   Freeware MPEG Encoders AVI2VCD 1.3.7 Windows 98se and Windows 2000

After a series of tests carried out January the 17th and 18th 2001, I considered that TMPGEnc encoder provides with better results than AVI2VCD (see also test from vcdhelper.com ).
