I have a panasonic Rv32, and it never plays anything good. Infact the video playback is extrememly laggy, and the audio sucks too. Ive heard people say that if could be because of the bitrate, which in one of the cases is <2500. So i was thinking that maybe if i could reduce the bitrate down to 2000 or so then id get a good playback. This is SVCD. I wanna try something similar with some of my vcds also though. Thanks for your cooperation.
