View Full Version : Vcd Encoding

06-22-2003, 11:06 PM
Im tryin to encode a movie I dl from Kazaa to VCD and Im following a step by step from a document I got from Kazaa as well. Ive actually done this a few times with no problems but this particular movie when I did it to VCD format it was fine in my computer but on my VCD player (I live i Thailand), the sound skips every second consistently. I know its not the player cause ive done this a few times with no problems. Anyway I tried again but with a different document and followed step by step but this time Im getting an "illegal floating decimal point error". Why?? The video is 29.970. I dont know if u need any more info to help me but if u do then just let me know. Im trying to fix either this error problem or the sound skip proble, whichever is easier :) Btw I used Virtual Dub Mp3 Freeze and TMPGEnc Plus. I get my error with TMPGEnc obviously.

I've had this a few times with TMPEGENC. I think the best thing I can say is to make sure you have the most recent version, cos it doesn't seem to do this as much since i got a new version; don't know whether it's the version of software or the fact that the files have been encoded better, but its worth a shot :)

Ill check my version for updates, but I think I have the latest. I just can't understand y this particular movie is giving me a hard time. Im going crazy :blink:

I have had that problem and many other including no sound after ecoding.

go to OPTIONS > ENVIROMENTAL SETTINGS > VFAPI PLUG-IN (far right button) and set DIRECT SHOW MULTIMEDIA FILE READER to 1 or 2 (right click on it and set higher priority)

This has solved the floating decimal point, illeagal pointer, and no sound problem.
