    The most reliable, quickest and easist way I've found to convert XVID 2 DVD with perfect results everytime is to use the following apps

    VirtualDub
    Mainconcepts MPEG Encoder
    NEODVD or NeroVision

    1) Load the XVID file into virtual dub and save the Audio only to a WAV file.

    2) Repeat the process and save the Direct Video stream only to a AVI file (still in XVID).

    Fire up Mainconcepts MPEG Encoder and select the Video & Audio files you've just created and select the required output file type...leave it running and some hours later depending on your pc's cpu you will have a MPEG file.

    From here on its personal choice on how you master the MPEG into a DVD VOBS etc. Some like Nero Vision Express others TMPEnc DVD Author.
    Myself I use NEODVD as its never let me down yet.

    I have downloaded all the above app's. After I have used mpeg encoder, and play the mpg file, I get sound in media player but no picture. What am I doing wrong? I am very new to all this.

    Yes, I have the xvid codec installed. I can watch the files before I put them through MPEG Encoder, but after I only get sound.
    I have been using Ulead Movie Factory 2 to join avi files encoded with Xvid to make a vcd but I don't get any sound this way. I then tried to use virtual dub to produce a wav file and an avi file to then put through MPEG Encoder to produce an mpeg file to create the vcd.

    Sorry to be a pest but I am new to this kind of stuff.

    Is DivX different from XVid.

    I have 2 DivX that I want to convert to DVD. Is it worth it. Is it good quality and how do I do it? The same way as described above for XVid?

    Thanks

    swdickson: DivX was the "original" ... an extension of Microsoft's MPEG4 codec. They really have done a good job. Some of the landmark codecs was the 3.11, 4.12 and 5.05 releases. DivX Corp saw that they could sell it and so they did. They also have an adware supported version.

    XviD is a freeware version of the DivX codec and will foreva be free. It offers a higher bitrate (quality) for the same filesize. The only downside is that the codec is slightly more finicky compared to DivX.

    My reccommendation: XviD :)

    Yes mate, as long sa the .avi (DivX or Xvid) is good quality, then you'll get a decent dvd out of it. Totally agree with MainConcepts MPEG Encoder, i was using Nero Vision Express before i tried this, Mainconcepts totally blows NVE outta the water.

    Ok I have been following this thread and i think i can get some help here.
    Ok I have used tmpgenc to convert the movie then i try to use Nero express but when I try to "add" the vedio source it is not listed unless i look at "all files". so I burnt it that wasy and i had no sound.

    So now i am back to step one
    I have the file
    I used avi codec to determine the video and audio format
    Video : 599 MB, 681 Kbps, 29.970 fps, 464*314 (4:3), DX50 = DivXNetworks Divx v5, Supported

    Audio : 84 MB, 95 Kbps, 44100 Hz, 2 channels, 0x55 = MPEG Layer-3, Supported
    Then I used VirtalDub Mod to convert to .avi ,Then used tmpgenc, then tried useing nero. I followed a guid to walk me through. And obviously I messed up with the virtualdub can someone tell me where. ??????????
