    mplex -> MAX file size

    I'm having allot of luck authoring DVDs via -

    Tytool 5r2
    Vsplit13c
    BeSweet
    mplex
    Spruce-Up

    modified "Resource Editor" parms 720x480

    works great VBR (SA TiVo) with streams under 2gigs.

    mplex is defaulted to 2000M for output file size

    I've tried using the -S 0 (switch) but it doesn't seem to have an effect!

    does anyone have a commandline they can share that works to create an .mpg larger than a win98 2gig file?

    if I use TMPGenc to multplex it works fine, but I like to use mplex for the automation I can get via a batch file.

    You are (most likely) running into a filesystem limitation. You're running Win98? What filesystem is your HD? Fat or FAT32?

    perhaps I wasn't clear ... it defaults to win98 fat --

    I'm using Win2k -- which does NOT have the 2gig file limit. I want to enable files greater than 2gigs as an output. I've tried the switch -S 0 - but it still creates the 2 gig file. Trust me it is not my OS - the files mplex is working with are larger than 2gigs.

    any help would help!

    Question C compile/link options?

    I believe that jdiner had similar problems with his Linux executable earlier this year, because he left out a compile/link qualifier to support large files. Not being a C developer myself, I can't remember what the exact qualifer was, LARGE_FILES or something similar.

    I don't know the answer, but have a couple of questions that might make it more obvious for the C-proficient readers:

    - what version of mplex source / binary are you running ?
    - what compiler and version were used to build it ?
    - are you running it under CygWin, or in a DOS window ?

    hope this helps . . .

    sounds possible...

    I'm running ver. 1.6.0

    just the compiled binary for windows in a DOS box.


    thanks for the attention... and possible future solution.
