EyeTV 4 Export (Catalina)

Recommended Posts

Hello,

on the 3rd EyeTY Version I was able to export a recording direct into iTunes compatible format, in EyeTV 4 I can only export to MPEG-Elementary or MPEG-Program-Stream. 

In the HELP there is "File conversion" and "Create export preset", but I can't find a way to use it. Does anyone know how to export int iTunes compatible (small, AAC, MPEG-4 Video, H.264) format?

 

Thx, Frank.

same problem here.. an answer would be nice. That was one of the main reasons to buy EyeTV back in the days. Not being able to do this anymore would be a big step back!!

Til eyetv 3.x.x the software was able to do that automatically 

i just started or planned a recording and afterwards eyetv did all the rest. 

Don’t want to do it manually 

 

why did they dropped that feature out?

Problem is, 3.x.x doesn't work on 10.15.x Macs as they support only 64Bit Apps.. And no one from the company answering or do care about our concern 😞 😡

I just ordered EyeTV 4 not knowing that there was an export issue. I used to use EyeTV without issue prior to upgrading to Catalina.

Today after playing around with it some bit, I exported the video in the MPEG-Program-Stream format and then added the .mpg file extension to it. I opened it in Quicktime Player and then saved it as a .MOV. iMovie had no problem recognizing and opening that file.

I'm glad this works but I wish I didn't have to resort to so many steps to be able to work with it in iMovie. I haven't tried importing into iTunes but based on past experience, it should be able to open a .MOV files.
