Hi Mike. The only reason I use mpeg2 is because I've always thought that 
was the better to work with. Sometimes I'm converting from avi to mpeg2 
to do the editing, then converting the finished product back to avi. All 
I'm really doing is editing out ads and so forth. I might see if 
avidemux will work on the source avi files. Thanks.
