On what are you basing the notion that it's "definitely MPEG-2"?  The
fact that it plays in other players is not proof of that.  Run the
file utility, like so:
file C:\A-V\Net\file_01_edit.mpg
What does it say?

Which should be good evidence that something is different.

Personally, I get this warning most often when I've screwed up the
path to my config file.  Perhaps your config options aren't being
loaded.  So try the file utility and verify if it believes that your
output is in fact MPEG.
