Hi, Ive recently been re-encoding .avi files with tmpgenc,but when playing on my standalond dvd player theres frame skipping every 1 or 2 seconds,now its not the burn speed,ive read all about that - and this has happened before. Now I do quite a bit of en-coding of dvd's and when I personnaly rip them myself I dont get this problem. The avi films that I have re-encoded run fine on my PC. Also I want to point out that some re-encoded avi files run fine without skipping,it only happens when the avi file has a source framerate of 29 fps(im from UK so my standard is PAL). But dont let that fool you,I have other SVCD's & CVD's (and even my own custom CVD's) that run at 29 fps that dont skip. Now Im using a fairly high bitrate of 2300(CQ 80 - 2pass VBR is too lengthy to wait for me)The picture quality is good,motion the works...Its just some of these damn avi conversions..
