Nero
Nero Digital is a Codec. Basically the Codec adopts the MPEG-4 standard but has some extensions, e.g. Subtitles, chapter creation, 2 Audio-streams and navigation (soon). It is our reaction to the MPEG-4 Standards but it is 100 % standard compliant, including MPEG-4 Part 10, AVC [Advanced Video Coding or H.264]. According to this, it is a perfect position to use the vantages of the HD Technologie of the next generation, including HD-DVD, Blu-ray, VOD and HD broadcasting. It contains MPEG-4 ASP (Advanced Simple Profile) video as well, like DivX and Apple; MPEG-4 AAC audio like iTunes and 3GP mobile; using the MP4 file container. Compared to the DivX format which uses its own containers, the Codec is technologicaly seen very free – equally opposed to Microsoft, Real and Apple with its own DRM (Digital Rights Management) extensions. In principle, files created with Nero Digital are supported by a wide range of Hardware and Software if the MPEG-4 standard was followed. That is why Nero Digital does extremely fit to the future, especially if you consider that both HD-DVD and Blu-ray together with VC-1 [Windows Media 9] have adopted AVC as obligatory Codecs for the next DVD-Generation.

The MP3/mp3PRO plug-in is not included in all Nero versions.

OEM and Essentials versions of Nero never include the MP3/mp3PRO plug-in. All OEM and Essentials versions are limited versions and are mostly sold as a bundle with a hardware device. You can send your serial number by email to us. We will verify if the MP3/mp3PRO plug-in is part of your licence or not. The full versions of Nero 7 (since verion 7.5.7.0) and Nero 8 already include the mp3PRO-plug-in.

If the MP3/mp3PRO plug-in is not part of your licence can order the mp3PRO plug-in directly in our online store.

With the implementation of the official ETSI-standard for AC-3 storage in MP4 in the latest version of Nero 9, Nero Digital MP4 files are fully compatible with the current and future industry standard.
Nero Digital MP4 files that were created in older Nero Recode versions (before Nero Recode 4 / Nero 9) are not compatible with the current and future industry standard.
Therefore we provide a command line conversion tool which patches Nero Digital MP4 files that use the old style for the AC-3 audio track to Nero Digital MP4 files using the official ETSI-standard to ensure compatibility with future devices and software.
Please proceed as follows:
Download the file NeMP4Remux.zip, save this file to your desktop.
NeMP4Remux
Unzip the ZIP-file with WinZip or WinRAR and save the content to your hard drive.
To patch your older files with help of the command line so that they are compatible with newer versions proceed as follows:
Click "Start" in the Windows start menu.
Click the "Run" command.
The window "Run" will open.
Enter "cmd" in the "Open" text field and click the "OK" button.
The DOS window will open.
Browse to the NeMP4Remux.exe path (where you extracted the *.exe file) and enter “space” > input file “space” > output file
eg: C:\Dokuments and Settings\\Desktop\NeMP4Remux.exe
We would like to draw your attention to the following:
Files created with Nero Recode 4 are already created according to industry standard (ETSI) compliant AC-3 audio tracks by default, so no conversion is needed in this case to ensure compatibility with future devices and software.
Nero ShowTime 4 will not recognize the AC-3 audio track in the converted file,so please keep the original files for playback in Nero 8.

CD Text consists of additional information on a CD that can store e.g. music track titles and artists. CD Text is stored in the so-called lead-in area of the CD before the audio data starts. The display on the CD player shows the additional data. You must have a CD burner which supports CD Text to enable the CD Text to be written to a CD. In particular, CD Text can only be written in disc-at-once mode.

The MPEG-1 Audio Layer 3 audio format is used to reduce the size of audio files to a fraction of their original size (factor 1:10) with little loss of quality. You can estimate about 1 MB per minute as opposed to 10 MB for the original files. This value and the quality can vary depending on the complexity of the audio signal. The bit rate used can be used as a measure of quality. The higher the bit rate, the better the quality, but also the more memory required.

A Low Frequency Effect channel is used for transmitting low frequency sound via a special low frequency channel that is specially reduced in its bandwidth. The bandwidth is limited to the bases and thus to frequencies between 20 Hz and 100 Hz. The LFE channel is used in various multi-channel sound systems. Because of its limited bandwidth it is not counted as a full channel in the designation of multi-channel sound system but as a suffix marked as "1"(e.g. 5.1).

Noise shaping is a process in which the noise of a digital signal is more strongly concentrated in certain frequency ranges. The noise is thus displaced into frequency ranges that are irrelevant for further signal processing. These frequency ranges can subsequently be damped with the aid of various filters and in this way the noise is suppressed.

Yes, you can use both Nero audio applications (Nero Wave Editor and Nero Soundtrax) to record streaming audio. Please note that your soundcard needs to support this feature.
The procedure for recording audio streams depends on the operating system.

- Now you should be able to record audio streams.


Windows Vista/Windows 7:

- Open Nero WaveEditor or Nero SoundTrax.
- Now click the "Options" "Device Settings" entries in the menu bar.
- Go to "Input Device" and select the "Stereomix", "WaveMix" or "What you hear" option from your sound card and confirm with "OK".

The recording options in Nero WaveEditor and Nero SoundTrax are displayed differently in Windows XP and Windows Vista/Windows 7.

In Windows XP the sound card is seen as one device. Therefore, selecting a device will allow you to access all input options in the recording console.

In Windows Vista/Windows 7 every input option is seen as a separate device. Therefore, the sound card input option must first be selected in "Device Settings".
You get to this window by clicking the "Options" "Device Settings" entries in the menu bar.
In this window, select the preferred "Input Device".
After that, the "Master Volume" entry in the recording console represents the input device selected in the "Device Settings" window.
