MPEG Formats

Media Mill supports a variety of MPEG-related formats in a slightly different method than other file formats. These format commonly have the file extensions MPG, MOD, TOD, and VOB. When uploading a file in this format, you'll be presented with the message shown below.

This "pre-processing" step will generally only take a minute or two. After it is complete, you may use Media Mill the same way you would with any other file. In technical terms, during this step, Media Mill "demuxes" the source file, decompresses the audio, and then rewraps the video and audio in a Quicktime .mov wrapper, allowing Media Mill to process the file.
