    I downloaded some AVI movies from the web and tried to burn a VCD ont he first attempt it took 1 hour and 40 minutes on a 800 mhz computer with 512mb of ram. then each one i tried after that took an average of 8 hours so i tried my other computer a 1.3 ghz 128mb ram it took 10 hours to encode the file the first time then nero froze b4 it burned and did the same afterwards.. i checked to see how much of the processor was being used and it said 100% which is way to much... what is wrong? what can i do?

    Never use nero for encoding because it does a terrible job at it!! Use TMPGEnc to encode it.

    With TMPGEnc, you can easily click file - project wizard and create a new vcd! VCD is MPEG-1 so the quality isnt great but for the first 30 days you can encode mpeg-2 (svcd) which will have much higher quality than vcd but will take its time. You can also buy TMPGEnc plus from the pegasys inc website http://www.pegasys-inc.net for about $50 for a download which is very good for an encoder capable of mpeg-2 encoding. You can also get the free version of TMPGEnc from http://www.afterdawn.com/software/video_software/video_tools/tmpgenc.cfm

    Most likely have a file with audio compression. Now you need to get VirtualDUB - http://www.afterdawn.com/software/video_software/video_tools/virtualdub.cfm

    open the avi in it and do the following

    1. click video - direct stream copy
    2. click audio - full processing mode
    3. click audio - compression, select no compression pcm and click ok
    4. click file - save avi

    now open the avi you saved in TMPGEnc!

    Well i tried to open the video file in virtual dub and got this message. Could'nt Locate decompressor for format "mp43" (high speed Mpeg-4 v3) the majority of my vidoe files when tried came up with that message with on exception then a message like this came up. This AVI file dosen't have a movie data block (movi) this is very frustrating please help. and thanks for your help so far
