Choosing Extras Settings

You can control the inclusion or exclusion of specific MPEG-2 authoring information in
the Extras tab.

To open the Extras tab and choose Extras settings


Click the Extras button in the MPEG-2 Encoder pane to open the Extras tab.


Select the “Add DVD Studio Pro metadata” checkbox if you want Compressor to parse
specific MPEG-2 authoring information rather than parse the information later in
DVD Studio Pro.


Selecting this checkbox may make your MPEG-2 files incompatible with any

DVD authoring tools other than DVD Studio Pro 2 (or later).


Select the “Include chapter markers only” checkbox if you want to exclude automatic
compression markers from the stream but still retain the chapter markers.


Select the Multiplexed MPEG-1/layer 2 Audio checkbox only if you need to create transport
or program streams. See

About Elementary, Transport, and Program Streams
