Exporting Timeline

Help if possible please

I have changed from “ DVBCUT” to “KDENLIVE” to edit video's, the editing works fine but I cannot get them exported from the timeline correctly in the same format as the original as I did with the other program

When I import them they have the following properties from Kdenlive
Video Codec: :mpeg2video
Audio Codec: ac3
Fps 25
Audio 48000 Hz Stereo
Size 720x576

Exported these have changed
Video Codec mpeg1video
Audio Codec mp2

Import information from ffmpeg
Duration: 01:04:04.28, start: 0.232178, bitrate: 2371 kb/s
Stream #0.0[0x1e0]: Video: mpeg2video, yuv420p, 720x576 [PAR 16:15 DAR 4:3], 9548 kb/s, 25.00 tb(r)
Stream #0.1[0x80]: Audio: ac3, 48000 Hz, stereo, 256 kb/s

Can anybody give me some help that is not to technical to save my edited video in the original format.




There are similar render profiles available.
In the render dialog, choose:
Left-list: MPEG-2
Right-list: MPEG-2 10000k

If you want to use your original audio codec ac3 instead of the default mp2 create a custom profile (button with small plus above format list). Then try changing acodec=mp2 to acodec=ac3

may I ask which distro and version of Kdenlive please as on my Debian and version 0.6.0 svn I may not have the options you suggest.


If you're using Kdenlive 0.6, well you chould knpw that it's very old, and not at all supported anymore. Current version is 0.7.7 (0.7.8 should probably be out fairly soon as well), and MLT is in version 0.5.6. You should the most recent version possible.

If you can't compile it yourself you should be able to get packages for Kdenlive and MLT, but I'm not sure what's the best and easiest way to do so with Debian (with Ubuntu you simply have to add the sunab or sunab2 ppa).
