VideoReDo's usefulness isn't limited to simple MPEG editing. As a product that's grown up to be the premiere DVR editing software, many tools have been added to analyze and repair MPEG files. Before you read this guide you should be familiar with the program's options, as explained in the VideoReDo Plus Installation and Configuration guide. While this guide does cover some options for displaying video, many of them could change from one project to another, which is why they're not included in the main Options dialog. The operations in this guide should be applicable to whatever you plan to do in VideoReDo Plus.
Loading MPEG files seems like a pretty straight forward operation, and if your MPEG file is in perfect order that's true. In reality, a lot of digital broadcasts and DVR captures suffer from corrupt video and audio frames, audio/video sync issues, and frames out of sequence. Much of this can be handled by the general options you should have already set for audio/video sync and frame sequence correction. Sometimes you also need to use other tools to finish the job. Fortunately, VideoReDo Plus has a few tools built in that will help you out with most problems. It also has the ability to display more than just the picture for each video stream and frame, as well as general information about video and audio streams.
