View Full Version : Burning To Vcd

06-25-2003, 03:55 PM
I've been using Nero to burn VCD movies from avi files and have had pretty good luck with it but occassionally I dl a movie that no matter how many times I try to burn it the damn thing gets out of sync at a particular spot depending on the movie. Is this due to the origional encoding of the avi? Is there a better program to burn or convert vcd's to avoid this problem?

I tried to find a post addressing this problem but couldn't find any so I apologize if this has been asked before.

Here is what you need to do!

NEVER use the encoded audio file that is in the original AVI (wether it be DIVX, XVID or any other format). Your audio will be out of sync!

Here's what I do. I use VirtualDUB to extract the audio from the AVI. I save it as a WAV file that is NON-COMPRESSED. Usually end up at 1GB in size.

Then I use TMPGenc. I select the AVI (DIVX) movie and I use the new WAV that was extracted. Works perfect every time. Audio and video is synced perfectly.

If you ever come across a DIVX with an audio track that doesn't work in some players, then there is a chance it is coded with the AC3 codec, which needs to be extracted with virtualDUB as a WAV and renamed as an AC3, then converted into a WAV with a program called BESWEET (and a program called tooLAME.exe). Then use TMPGenc as described above.

ALSO, did you know that TMPGenc can make those wide screen movies fit the full screen of a regular TV, without the squeezed look?

Right on thanks for the info.

Btw where can I find VirtualDUB? Or should I just go to Kazaa and dl it?

OK, ive been burnin movies a bit now, but they usu end up out of sync...I tried this method a couple of times, but it didn't really work too well. Is it just clicking "File>Save Wav" and thats it, cos im sure the wav created isn't usu that big?? :huh:

Yup just tried it myself and the wav file was only 18 mb. And the movie came out waaay out of sync. The origional file is actually in sync.

I didn't see a way to make it vcd format either..only mpeg.

you make it an mpeg then it is a VCD, once you burn it, if that makes sense :huh:
use TMPEG to make to mpeg, and then Nero to burn :)

ahh ok that's what I was kinda thinking..although it doubles the files size (which I believe I can tweak in the settings)

I still haven't been able to get the audio to sync up unfornately.
