avi to vcd or svcd

  struggle8 15:53 21 Apr 2003

I have an avi file on my pc that I want to put on to cd-r. I have tryed to us the copy software that I have, NTI cd maker 2000 pro but when I try to convet avi to vcd it crashes as so with nero is there any more cd copying software that I could try that has the avi to vcd like nero for p4 2.4ghz 256 mb mem 128 graphics win xp home. basically I want to convert avi to mpeg for free as I dont want to but another cd copying software as I have 2 already.

click here and look for guides on .avi to vcd with TMPGEnc (mpeg encoding util) then click here and goto the downloads section to get the util...

Have read your thread and assume you have nero. Do you have both burning progs installed? If so remove one, perhaps leaving nero. Go to the nero site and upgrade to latest. free if you have a previous version of Nero. I understand that nero does not seem to like co-existing.

I regularly use nero to burn VCD to CDR using AVI file and have no problems.

your .avi is probably using the relatively new XVID codec. It's still under development and is updated regularly. You have to use a dedicated encoder like TMPGEnc and alter the environmental settings to get the codec to read correctly...

Nero etc's built in mpeg encoders are poor quality encoders and will not read non standard coedcs without the appropriate plugins

check out the earlier links...

Ihave tryed TMPGEnc the picture if fine but I cannot get no sound and another error now uninstalled it.

oh if its the vidx codec is that why I have sound on some of my avi files and not on otheres is so what is the best codec to use as I dont have the slitest ideas in this department the codec Ihave installed at the moment is XviD-04102002-1 thats the downloaded program
