I have been trying to encode several avi files into vcd and svcd compatible mpegs and have run into a problem. No matter if I use Tmpgenc or Ulead DVD Factory I get the same result, after encoding I can get sound ok, but there is no video. All I get is a black screen. I have divx 5 pro installed. I also just downloaded the divx 3.11 alpha codecs and they made no difference. I downloaded KingJohns codec test files from vcdhelp.com all played fine appart from Huffymp3 and Xvidmp3. I am almost certain it is a codec problem, but since I am a svcd/vcd newbie I thought I better ask some more experienced people before I go and download every codec I can find and no doubt screwing my system completely. Any help gratefully appreciated.
