I have sorted out all possible problems regarding this category of the forum.
If you know the solution to any of the following problems, kindly provide.
If you face problems other than the following, post it out too.
For good quality movies, forget about those on cinema, cos they are either fake or vague. Try those already DVD released titles. They are usually around 700mb in size, and also check other identical files, whether they contain other movie titles or not, if yes, this movie is DEFINITELY fake.
this is seldom a problem, if your ISP is decent and you just stay online with KL running. But it just happened to me one problem of unfinished file disappearing, when my computer sometimes gets unstable and resets itself.
Codecs arent a problem, we have so far 2 good codec packs, Nimo and K-lite, dont know which one is better so I installed both. And I still have problem with freezing frames, AVIDEFREEZER doesnt seem to be working.
A movie file is always too big to squeeze in one CD, so we split it. Some ppl recommend AVISPLIT, but I can never get it working. Most ppl recommend VIRTUALDUB, but splitted files are often "nonsynchronous" (hope I used the right word) in its picture and sound, which means the movie character speaks and his voice comes out 2 seconds later or earlier. And yet virtualdub is still so popular. Later I tried NANDUB, which is very similar to VD, still has the same problem, though just slightly.
The other step is to convert the AVI format into MPG format, for burning. And this step takes the longest time, about 2 times the movie length (my experience).The recommended tool is TMPGEnc, but it is not free, I wonder if theres anything free for this purpose. And I am not sure which one is better, to convert first, or to split first? (I always split first)
Finally, we can burn. Nero has the AVI to MPG function, it runs automatically b4 burning. But sometimes it burns out upside down movies, so it is better to convert with some other nice tool yourself. And always burn with the lowest speed.
