avi to svcd

Just burned an avi file to svcd with Nero with mpeg2 encoder installed. Problem is the finished product plays upside down and back to front.(!!!) Original plays fine on my computer and when played through my TV. Any ideas? Surely this isn't a codec problem if the original works....is it?

just tried it on my DVD player, (svcd compatible) also plays upside down and back to front.(????)

Hi,

Where did you get the MPEG2 encoder from ?

I could really do with this !!!!

Thanks

Blix,

I have used the Nero mpeg2 encoder with no problems. You might try here with your question if nothing on this forum.

KCR You will be able to buy the Nero mpeg2 encoder from their web site in Germany. I seem to remember they charge in dollars US but the credit card converted to about £11 GB. Works quite well.

Your first problem was using Nero to encode the avi movie! only use nero for burning (what it does best!) You will need to convert from avi to mpeg1/2 using a decent encoder program such as TMPNGc this will create your svcd/vcd you can then burn onto cds with nero. Try click here
for great tutorials and links to all the tools you would need. It takes a bit of playing to get the optimum quality but its worth it in the end!!

Just a hint if your avi file is about 700mb you can encode it to 2 vcds at a bitrate of 1700.

Also check out digital-digest.com for lots of help in there forums.

Hope this helps!!
Beware it gets addictive!!!
