BYE has been pure joy to use with my remote telescope, going on 7 years. I wish all my software was so focused on the task and easy to use. But I've got a problem. The AVI's are monster files so I can't easily move them across the country. I'm using an old Win7 machine, and cannot get the AVI's to convert to MP4 using PS CS5, VLC or even one of the specific converter freeware programs. Specifically, when I try to convert the 960x640px AVI's, they come out as stretched 1280x720 MP4s (in PS CS5). No matter what rendering settings I use. And VLC only converts the first frame then chokes.
Planetary AVI recording can be an intense and CPU hungry process. The native planetary recording in BackyardEOS and BackyardNIKON uses a commercial encoder to create the AVI movie files. However, the encoder may prove to be to much on some computer configuration and in some cases may not even complete the video encoding BackyardEOS and BackyardNIKON both have a built-in alternative which takes less CPU. This alternative is VirtualDub. VirtualDub is free! I'm not able to -package- VirtualDub part of the BackyardEOS and BackyardNIKON installers due to it's GNU General Public License. Ho
