[vdr] Convert video clip to .vdr format

When I convert video material from other sources to VDR, I use mencoder
(Linux)
or TMPGEnc (Windows) to create a DVD conform MPEG2. Then I use ProjectX to
convert the MPEG2 into VDR format and genindex to generate the index.vdr.
This
works very well for me. Maybe the additional ProjectX step will do the trick
for you
also.

Best regards,
Reiner.
