    Hi, I am having problems encoding an MKV file to DVD MPEG-2 with ConvertXtoDVD.
    The file plays fine all the way through, but after encoding about 2 minutes of the file CXTDVD says "estimated duration of the video was inaccurate" and something about the output size being smaller. The result is only about 2 minutes long.

    How do I fix the file?

    Many thanks

    you may have to use avi2dvd instead of the program you are currently using.

    Hi, I actually have 2 files which I want to convert to 1 DVD - the first file has no problems. How do I convert 2 input files with AVI2DVD?

    Thanks

    Yes. I have tried opening the problematic file in VirtualDubMod and I get the following:
    [!] MKV: A frame of stream 1 (at 83 ms) had only a forward reference (maybe broken file).

    -Hundreds more frames in between-

    [!] MKV: A frame of stream 1 (at 669962 ms) had only a forward reference
    (maybe broken file).

    [!] MKV: Video frames seems to be weirdly ordered.

    [!] Couldn't locate decompressor for format 'ÿÿÿÿ' (unknown).
    VirtualDub requires a Video for Windows (VFW) compatible codec to decompress video. DirectShow codecs, such as those used by Windows Media Player, are not suitable. Only 'Direct stream copy' is available for this video.

    i also have a file like that(MKV file with the decompressor for format 'ÿÿÿÿ' and the [!] MKV: Video frames seems to be weirdly ordered)

    I tried using VirtualDubMod, but the video cant be separated. This is the first time ive encountered such mkv file. Also unlike most mkv files, its very very small (around 40mb in 30mins), but has better quality compared to mpeg, avi(xvid) and rmvbs with the same size and length.

    How did it get so small, and how will i extract the video?

    thanks

    you probably need to find out what was used to compress it?

    I wonder if something like soreenson squeeze was used
