Both the MPEG-2 and MPEG-4 movies have mono audio tracks.
To convert the MPEG-2 video to MPEG-4, we used a program called Flas K MPEG.
This process is automated by the software that runs the system.
Do I need to inform the Internet Archive and/or Prelinger Archives when I reuse these movies? However, we would very much like to know how you have used this material, and we'd be thrilled to see what you've made with it. Please consider sending us a copy of your production (postal mail only), and let us know whether we can call attention to it on the site.
We are also digitizing home movies and other materials on Internet Archive's Scan Station scanner.
The files were encoded at constant bitrates ranging from 2.75 Mbps to 3.5 Mbps.
(Rod Hewitt's site Coolstf shows examples of an image before and after this process.) Picture quality is equal to or better than most direct broadcast satellite television.
