That's interesting - can I use mpegts even for mpeg4?  Looking through the 
source, the mpegts long description says mpeg2 transport stream.  Being 
non-standard isn't a major problem - I'm using libavcodec/avformat to play 
them back anyway, so presumable it makes files that it can read itself :-)

running it's starting to look good.  It's not dissimilar to a product from 


Only it's a PCI card.

Anyway thanks for your help.
