Do the MPEG files generated by MediaPress work with DVD Studio Pro? Do they work with Sonic Fusion? Do they work with the new Quicktime 6 MPEG Player CODEC?

The MPEG files that MediaPress creates are standard MPEG files that can be used
in DVD Studio Pro, Fusion, and with Quicktime 6. They can even be transferred to
the PC platform and used there for DVD authoring or just plain playback.

Video only MPEG files, designated by .mpv, have only video in them. Audio only
MPEG files, designated by .mpa, have only audio in them. Files that have both
audio and video are called Multiplexed files, or Muxed files. You can have two
different types of muxed files, System and Program muxed files. System
multiplexing is used when you have MPEG1 video to multiplex. Program multiplexing
is used when you have MPEG2 video to multiplex. You can mix these two up and they
probably will play, but it is not a standard format and you may have difficulty
in getting a player to play them correctly. So it's best to keep MPEG1 in System
muxed files and MPEG2 in Program muxed files.
