I am working on a digital screen unit which has a 2-3 second delay with still images, but no delay for MPEG-2 video. I have used Photoshop CS5 to export the JPEG into MPEG-2 (MP4(ISMA)), but the quality is poor and very limited.

The image size is 1280x768.

Is there any software that can achieve this? Any help will be appreciated.

Is this one frame or many? Have you tried ffmpeg? – Nick ODell Oct 9 '11 at 23:04

Did you try using the guide I linked? Also, why do you want to encode your jpeg image into a video? – Nick ODell Oct 9 '11 at 23:18
Yes Nick i did look at the guide u linked, i dont really understand it very well. i suppose this thing dont realli have a user interface, you have to mannually use conmmand, i am not very good at that... but i look more into it + this is reason why i have to use MPEG >> (my image size is 1280 x 768) I am working on a very stupied digital screen unit, it does delay with still image (2-3 secs), however perfect for Mpeg-2 video, so it really sh*t me to tear at the moment, any help would be appreciated. – bluebill1049 Oct 9 '11 at 23:26
