I could use some clarification on how to convert video files to work
with Cell DNA. I have been unable to get anything to work, despite my
files playing fine in Quicktime (which is on my PC).
My process so far to make files work is: I use Avidemux (a powerful free converter) to convert videos to .mp4 files. These files do not play in Quicktime, and do not show thumbnails in Windows Explorer. Then, I convert these files into Quicktime .mov files using WinFF (a front-end to ffmpeg). These converted files look and play perfectly in video players on my PC (Quicktime, Media Player Classic, Windows Media Player, etc) , but do not play within Cell DNA (where they just show a black preview window).
Any idea what is wrong? The Media Info on these files is here: http://pastebin.com/9TYkZaGw Thanks in advance for any help or suggestions!
P.S. I understand that MPEG4 is not the preferred video format for Cell DNA... but I cannot figure out how to convert to PhotoJpeg (Avidemux can't do it; it has an option for MJPEG, but that just gives me a "bit rate too low" error). Also, I've tried MPEGstreamclip, but it doesn't recognize my source file - which is MPEG-4v2. I also have installed the K-Lite codec pack (Mega) - no difference.
