  1. I am running on a Windows 32 platform and I would like to use this application/toolset to export CDG+MPE files to MPEG (love the rendering via the pykaraoke application).

    Is there a good guide to follow? I cannot seem to find one.

    Any help is greatly appreciated.



  2. Hi Kevin,

    It should be possible to do this, but it’s not exactly point-and-click at this stage.

    You can generate a set of JPG files using the command-line –dump option. The resulting set of images can then be put back together using many different programs to generate an MPG file. Typically mjpegtools is used to do this on Linux and we provide a Python script to take away the pain of doing this – I’m not sure if mjpegtools is available for Windows, but you could use any video editing software, or mplayer/mencoder on the command-line to splice the JPGs back together. There should be a wide range of Windows programs capable of splicing together still images in this way.

    Instructions for using the –dump option are in the README file delivered with the source code.
