    Re: AVI files don't play; Yellow Lock Icon Displayed Instead

    It depends on the codec and bitrates the capture device produce, The Mpeg-2 bitrate is above that which a DVD can handle. If I were in your position I'd just use Mpeg-2, I can't see how MP4 would improve the situation, but as in all these cases, the best thing to do is run a test if you are worried.

    One thing to bear in mind when testing is to make sure Studio Preview is set to Best Quality. Unless your have an underpowered PC, I'd also suggest turning off Playback Optimisation as you should get smooth playback of SD without it, and it will just introduce a potential further re-encoding stage.

    You do have to remember how awful VHS actually is when you compare it to modern video - the cameras and the recording system. Don't expect miracles :-)
