    I have downloaded the Matrix Reloaded Centropy movie which seems to be super VCD. This works fine on my DVD player but it won't work on a friends Denon. Is there a way to convert this to a standard VCD as I know this works on his machine.

    A program called Tmpgenc should be able to re-encode the movie to VCD format, but as far as i know there is no easy way to just change the resolution/fps of an mpeg file without recompressing it and losing soem picture quality in the process.

    You Probaly dont need to re-encode

    You can trick the dvd into thinking it's a vcd.

    First get the program TMPGEnc Plus (English), version 2.512(8,092KB) download from
    http://www.pegasys-inc.com/ then get the serial from
    http://serials.ws/all/?l=w&pn=4 just dont download the spywear as it is very persistent at asking

    Then once installed go file>mpeg tools and the first tag your see is "simple multiplex" select the mpeg as the video input and rest of the gaps will automaticly be completed, if you want you can change the output file name as this will over ride the original mpeg(svcd).
    Now go to type and choose "Mpeg-1 Video-cd" then run it, all this does is changes the headers and fools the dvd into thinking it's a vcd but it's still a svcd.

    You might get an error like "buffer underun" ignore this as i have had this but it has caused no problems.

    The dvd should now play it with no problems.

    Yes you can use TMPGEnc to do this and I have done it. My DVD player does not play SVCDs and the SVCD/VCD header trick does not work on my player either, so I often convert ones that I download to do this. I have done it quite a few times successfully with TMPGEnc Plus no problem. You may have to play with the resolution settings a little though to make it look like the proper AR however.
