This is a specialty tool for adjusting key parameters of MPEG-2 elementary streams, with some unique functions and a clean Windows GUI.

I have used it to reset the aspect ratio of elementary streams received from satellite, which contained conflicting display dimensions and AR, and caused unwanted scaling in some players but not others. Another handy function is to mark PAL videos as progressive to make players use the apropriate chroma upsampling method (fixes pixellized red detail). Setting the actual average bitrate fixes seeking and time display in some players.

As another commenter pointed out, the video stream must be demuxed before it can be loaded, which is inconvenient, and adds risk to create an audio delay or lose subtitles upon remuxing (tool can't work on DVD files directly).

Works great, fixed some MPEG2 streams I was having trouble with by removing sequence display extensions that were causing havoc with my media players, it's related to Pan & Scan data I believe and completely irrelevent outside of a DVD. It's never failed me yet I wish someone would come up with something similar for H264 streams.

To those who have half a brain and know how to demux a video stream, use the tool and remux, its great. To the idiots who want to be spoon fed everything on a plate and moan and whine when they don't get exactly what they want... go and buy some uber expensive software that will cater to your every whim.

That is all.

Depends on what you want it for I guess. If you just want to change aspect ratio its not that great, it can't work on a 'normal' file, ie one with sound and picture - you have to multiplex first using another program to separate video and sound, and then run this and then mulitplex them back again - takes forever and requires a lot of space.

This is an absolute 10 for what I use it for, which is to put the 16:9 aspect ratio back into my video file after my DVD Recorder records over-the-air widescreen in 4:3 mode. Does it quickly and painlessly. Saves time re-encoding (2 hours vs. 2 mins). Nice little tool.

This is a slick little tool. I use it mostly to correct timecode when two MPEGs have been joined. Works great. Very fast.

I had recently gotten a progressive DVD player - in progressive mode my home grown DVD menu backgrounds looked horrible (in interlaced everything was fine). Using restream I was easily able to correct them so it looked the same in progressive and interlaced mode. Thanks.

I edited some video and burned it to DVD (720x576 PAL). It played back fine on the PC but playback was jerky on my domestic DVD player. I loaded the m2v file into ReStream and selected top field first in the picture encoding extension frame and lowered the bitrate from 6000kbps to 5000kbps. I burned another DVD with the modified file and it played fine. Thanks for a useful piece of software.

Restream is great! I used Restream to repair interlace info from a mpeg2 capture that didn't look right when I burned it to DVD.
The file was converted to NTSC DVD format with avi2bbmpeg2 which interlaces from top field first. The captured file looked OK on computer monitor, but appeared blurry with a weird "drunken" effect on the final DVD when viewed on TV.
After demultiplexing and correcting m2v file with Restream (removing top field first interlacing), I multiplexed new fixed m2v and old mp2 audio files together. When burned to DVD quality was excellent with no blurry effect! You can't beat the price either, Thank you shh!
