Talk:MOD and TOD

Page contents not supported in other languages.
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

To use the .MOD file on a PC you only have to rename it to .MPG, it will then play or be editable on almost any software. (unknown contributor)

Regarding the following recent addition "Other tools and players like MediaInfo, or Windows Media Player bundled with Windows 7, or Media Player Classic have no problems with aspect ratio of widescreen MOD files." is inaccurate.

It's true that the MediaInfo tool correctly reports the aspect ratio of MOD files, but not media players which rely on the video decoder that they are using to tell them the aspect ratio. For example if you open a widescreen MOD file in VLC and have its aspect ratio set to "Default" then it will be displayed incorrectly as 4:3. The same happens in Media Player Classic (also set to default) when it is configured to use the ffdshow decoder; but when it is configured to use the Microsoft decoder it is displayed correctly as widescreen.

So the same media player can display MOD files correctly or incorrectly depending on which decoder it is configured to use. It is therefore incorrect to say that media players have no problems with aspect ratio of widescreen MOD files - they are just doing what they are told by the decoder which may be right or wrong.

I therefore suggest that the above quoted passage is replaced by "Some tools such as MediaInfo can correctly report the aspect ratio of widescreen MOD files, but media players may or may not display them correctly depending on the capabilities of the video decoder that they are utilising at the time."

It would be a great question if there is a TOD transfer that has no generation loss. I have a JVC HD7u that shots in TOD files as it has to be transfer every time. There are many ways to transfer but however there ways to also loss image quality with transfers to other formats. There is a way to transfer without generation loss but it is cricky. Should be mention anything about TOD and MOD transfer formats so people know?--Oxforduniversity1 (talk) 20:09, 13 August 2014 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Would like to see new articles on JVC cameras[edit]

I think an article on the JVC HD7 and JVC PX100 would be good articles to start, there was on the HD7u but don't see the articles anymore, as these are shoot on TOD and MOD formats.--Oxforduniversity1 (talk) 19:45, 24 July 2014 (UTC)Reply[reply]

We don't have an article on every camcorder model ever made. Are there reliable sources that support that these specific models were particularly innovative, influential, or noteworthy? WP does not create articles for every individual model from every manufacturer. Jeh (talk) 20:45, 24 July 2014 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Hello fellow Wikipedians,
