Multimedia Converter 2 chokes on ALL Mpeg2 clips at beginning of conversion that I have tried so far. I noticed it also reports the wrong video resolution for the source file. It should say something like 720x480, but instead it says 360x65056. These media clips all play fine within Multimedia Converter. There is no CSS protection on these files. However, they all get stuck right at the very beginning of conversion. Is this a known problem? How can I fix this? What’s the easiest and also FREE procedure to convert mpeg2 (non css protected dvd spec files) to 3GPP format compatible with portable phones?

PS: I have no problems converting Mpeg1 and MOV files.
