  1. After packing few Mpeg files together, I tried to playback the packed file but when it playing halfway through, the file became corrupted with funny result. Is there a bug in Mpack?
    No, it isn't a bug. There are 2 kinds of MPEG streams:
    - ISO11172-1 streams "systems stream" which covers most MPEG-1 multimedia videos and contains one video channel and one audio channel multiplexed.
    - ISO11172-2 streams "video-only stream" contains only video streams and no audio.
    Basically, you CAN pack Mpeg with different streams using Mpack but it will NOT playback properly. However, there is a workaround solution that we had found out during testing. You can try swapping the sequence of your clips. Some mpegs generally play well after they are swapped in sequence.
    You can try using the Copy/b <Filename1> + <Filename2> <Target Filename> and the result will be the same. If it isn't, please submit a bug report to us.

  2. When I unpack a mpeg file, I can only view the first file and not the others. Why is this so?
    Mpack is a file joiner/splitter and does not handle mpeg compression. Technically, the nature of mpeg files allows only the file with the file header to be viewed. That means the second file onwards, there is no mpeg compression that allows the file to be viewed.

  3. Why is it that my system and program suddenly became so slow when i pack or unpack files with the 'Ultra Fast' Transfer Rate option turn on?
    The faster the Transfer Rate, the faster Mpack takes to perform a packing or unpacking but higher the CPU resources are also being taken up.

  4. I find that the 'Fast' Transfer Rate is faster than the 'Ultra Fast' Transfer Rate. Why is this so?
    Packing with 'Ultra Fast' Transfer Rate results in the usage of huge amount of CPU resources. Mpack will become obviously "temporarily retarted" despite the fact that it is actually processing faster than the 'Fast' option. However, it is wasting resources and time to pack or unpack a relatively small file at 'Ultra Fast' Transfer Rate. In most case if the file is small, it is actually faster to unpack it using the 'Slow' or 'Normal' Transfer Rate to unpack that file. 'Ultra Fast' is recommended to be used when working with huge files like 10mb and above.

  5. Why is it still so slow when I unpack files although I set Transfer Rate to 'Fast' or 'Ultra Fast'?
    The fastest transfer rate for unpacking a file is the Unpack Size

  6. Can I pack different unpack files from different files together?
    Although you CAN pack different unpack files from different files together using Mpack, it will NOT playback properly.

  7. I swear I clicked 'Unpack' and ALL the files are successfully unpacked but i just can't find the files?
    Check the 'Unpack To' Option. During unpacking, the location of the unpacked file is determined by the 'Unpack Size' option.

  8. I've a lot of files with long filename and the file list box is too short...
    Hold the mouse over the file and the full path will be displayed.

  9. I hate clicking buttons to select files!
    Drag and Drop then! Even from Windows Explorer.

  10. What is Custom FileType?
    Custom FileType allows users to customize filetypes and filter the files in the File listbox. You can add more than 1 Filetype at one time by using a comma as a separator. Example will be a FileType named "Ordix" with filetype of *.odx + *.htm + *.html. So the Description will be "Ordix", FileType will be "*.odx,*.htm,*.html" without the quotes. Then you just add the custom filetype to the current list using the > button.

  11. I am looking for a software to combine Quicktime or Avi files. Can Mpack do it?
    NO! Mpack is a file joiner/splitter and do not handle ANY form of video compression. The format of QT and AVI are different from Mpeg and they CANNOT be displayed and viewed correctly through binary joining.

  12. What about mp3? Can i join or split a mp3 file and still be able to listen to them?
    YES! You can split, join and change whatever sequence u like and still be able to playback them without any problem.

  13. Can I pack files directly from Window Explorer?
    YES! Right-clicking on the selected files and selecting "Pack It..." will allow the packing of files from Window Explorer.

  14. Where can I register my copy of Ordix Mpack on the internet?
    http://www.ordix.com/mpack/registration.htm.

  16. I loaded a packlist but nothing happens?
    Simple! Either the file is not a valid packlist file or ALL the files are not found on your harddrive.

  17. HELP! I download Ordix Mpack but it doesn't install!"
    Did you download the VB Runtime after you had downloaded the MPackWithoutVBRuntime version?

  18. I click 'Pack' button but nothings happen...
    Are you running Windows 95 (ver.4.00.950) and below, chances are Mpack would not work.

  19. When I unpack a MPEG file, I can view the first file without any problems. But the player stops playing halfway while playing the 2nd and subsequent files although the audio is still playing.
    Mpack is a file joiner/splitter and do not handle mpeg resquencing. The MPEG header is embedded to the 2nd and subsequent files. You can generally play the MPEG if you turn off the audio. Only Xing MPEG player supports playing such EMH splitted files.

  20. Uninstall Ordix Mpack still leaves trace of "Pack It..." in the context menu. How to get rid of it?
    There is an Unreg.exe in the installed directory of Ordix Mpack. After you have run it, all Ordix Mpack information should be gone unless you run the program again.

  21. Packed file freezes while playing halfway... I'm sure all my MPEG files are of the same specifications.
    The answer to this problem is not about how the mpg was combined but rather on how the mpg was playbacked. Players like Windows Media Player and Xing MPEG Player decode MPEG files differently. You should try using different players to playback the packed file.

  22. Help!!! I can't get in my registration number to work!
    Please ensure that the version number of Ordix Mpack (Ordix Mpack Pro or Ordix Mpack LE?) is correct and you did not include any space carriages in your registration name or registration number. You must also key in your registration number manually.

    Mpack is a file joiner/splitter and do not handle mpeg resquencing. The MPEG header is embeded to the 2nd and subsequent files. You can generally play the MPEG if you turn off the audio. Only Xing MPEG player supports playing such EMH splitted files.
     

  24. Uninstall Ordix Mpack still leave trace of "Pack It..." in the context menu. How to get rid of it? (fixed in v4.5)
    There is a Unreg.exe in the installed directory of Ordix Mpack. After you run it, all Ordix Mpack information should be gone unless you run the program again.
     

  25. Packed file freezes while playing halfway... I'm sure all my MPEG files are of the same specifications.
    The answer to this problem is not about how the mpg was combined rather than how the mpg was playbacked. Players like Windows Media Player and Xing MPEG Player decodes MPEG files differently. You should try using different player to playback the packed file. Another possibility is the lack of MPEG2 decoder on the system. Some MPEG files might be using an MPEG2 codec or other illegitimate MPEG1 stream. Installing a MPEG2 decoder might remedy this problem.
     

  26. Help!!! I can't get in my registration number to work!
    At the splash screen, there is a 'Register' button on the right bottom of the window. Click 'Register' and key in your registration information (note that this should not lead you to any website). Please check that the version number of (Ordix Mpack Pro or Ordix Mpack LE?) is correct and that you did not include any space carriage in your registration name or registration information. Also, your registration information is CASE sensitive. You must also key in your registration information MANUALLY. DO NOT copy and paste your registration information. If your registration information still does not work, try keying in the registration number, then the registration name.
     

  27. A combine/split operation fails once a 2.1GB limit is hit! (fixed in v4.5)
    Version 4.5 and above has unlimited filesize support. Please download version 4.5 and above from http://www.ordix.com/mpack.
