    Hi. I encoded a movie that is a DivX .avi file to an .mpg file with TMPGEnc. The video is perfect. But after 13 min of the movie the audio gets choppy and jumpy. I have no clue what the problem is. Im new at this.

    Here is a little about the .avi file

    700MB
    (Audio)- MPEG-1 Layer 3 , 128 kb/s , 44100 Hz

    (Video)-23.976 FPS , Divx Codec , 480 x256
    979 kb/s

    Please Help Me :) Thank You :)

    OK, try again but this time download VirtualDUB and do the following first.

    1. open the file in virtualdub
    2. click video - direct stream copy
    3. click audio - full processing mode
    4. click audio - compression. Select no compression pcm and click ok.
    5. click file - save avi

    Now the avi you save will be bigger than the original avi but will have uncompressed sound and TMPGEnc works better with uncompressed sound!

    Well the avi2vcd didn't work. Except this time after 13mins of the movie the video turns white for a few second. Then it comes back and the a/v is out of sync. It must be a bad frame or something messing it all up. Is there a way to fix it??

    You can try fix the avi with avifixed! as for virtualdub, you probably need some form of mp3 codec!

    Nope, you'll need 3 cds for that. VCD or SVCD???

    well if its mpeg1 vcd something is wrong cause that filesize is way too high.

    I'm afraid you'll have to try encoding again!

    this time click setting and click the advaced tab, select source range then double click source range and then click "move to start frame" click "set start frame" click "move to end frame" and click "set end frame" then click ok and try the encoding again!
