    Is true though !

    There are a few different progs that can give you a MPEG2 file after re-encoding (if starting w/ an .AVI file)

    What downloaded file format are you starting with Bethany ? (which codec was it done with aswell...there is free software called ' G-Spot ' that'll tell which codec was used in compression)

    Most of the files I download are either .AVI or .DIVX , but I was getting tired of watching them on the computer so I thought I would try to figure out how to burn them onto DVD's.

    Use TMPGenc to convert avi to mpeg2 then use TMPGenc DVD Author to code into DVD-Video compliant, then use Nero or any dvd burning program you want. added file must look like...

    TMPGEnc is free (is only TMPGEnc DVD Author that needs paying for)


    Yes you would need a DVD burner to put hulk onto DVD-R (+R)

    Bethany : You will find problems trying to re-encode XviD .AVI movie-files (such as audio out of sync or upside down picture etc)
    But the rest is as DeadlyMEX said...as soon as you have a MPEG2 file load it into TMPGEnc DVD Author or DVD Architect.
    Burn w/ fave prog (is Nero for me)
    --------------------------------------
    Oh and BTW , this question -downloaded movies onto DVD-R's?- has been asked like hundreds of times...

    There is a SEARCH MESSAGES function at the top of the page , for anyone that hasn't seen it

    but these files i must say started life as NTSC film!

    i went through this process!

    DVDDecrypter = Strip/Rip main movie out of NTSC film/DVD

    DVD2AVI = Load .VOB's then create .d2v file, Also Sound file AC3 2CH 148Kbps 44Khz .WAV

    TMPGEnc Plus = Load .d2v & Sound file AC3 and using PAL MPEG2 template. End up with a MPEG2 file

    TMPGEnc DVD Author = Load MPEG2 file (couldnt load wave? so used MPEG2 file for sound and source aswell) probably good job as the sound sync may have been out!

    then couldnt work menu part out on last bit so just used vobs only in ifoedit to make all files needed for vobs then burnt all in nero

    watch out for ifoedit first try it didnt work? same files but tried again this time clicking on disc image and it corrected 3 files, so i burnt again and wammy! nice!

    works on ps2 good sound slight judder and on pc quiet sound excellant picture!

    i am now on it again with better settings (takes longer!) but looking for good quality all round!

    Thx...

    EDIT this part is this now!

    DVD2AVI = Load .VOB's then create .d2v file, Also Sound file AC3 2CH 448Kbps 48Khz .WAV

    just on vob making bit in dvd author!

    Standards Conversion (on the cheap)
    I hope this page will provide a useful guide for converting video of various formats from one video standard to another. There is not one absolutely correct way to convert from one standard to another, and any conversion technique will have its own set of advantages and disadvantages. The quality of the conversion is in the eye of the beholder, but I believe the methods shown here will provide an excellent balance between quality and simplicity.

    Tools
    The following tools are used by the methods outlined below. Please consult the installation instructions of the tools specified.

    TMPGEnc – MPEG 1 and 2 encoder (MPEG 2 encode requires purchase after the initial trial period expires).
    AVISynth – A script-based video processing application.
    BeSweet – A command-line-based audio processing application.
    BeSweetGUI – A GUI front end for BeSweet.
    DVD2AVI – A tool for extracting the video and audio from DVD VOB files.
    MPEG2DEC.dll – An MPEG 2 decoder.
    SmoothDeinterlacer.dll – An AVISynth plugin that converts interlaced video to non-interlaced video.
    WSOLA.exe – A command-line utility to time scale audio.
    Conversions
    The intersection between your desired source (top) and destination (left) indicates the resulting frame rate (p = Progressive, i = interlace). Click on this link to be taken to the steps for the specific method of conversion.


    NTSC to PAL

    I. PAL VCD (25 Fps) -> NTSC (Film) VCD (23.976 Fps)
    Load the source DAT file into TMPGEnc as the "Video Source" (the "Audio Source" selection should automatically change to match the "Video Source.").
    NOTE: Cancel the Wizard dialog box which appears when you run TMPGEnc.

    Select the "Wave file" item in the "Output to file" sub-menu of the "File" menu.
    Choose a location and filename for the destination WAV file.
    Click "Save" to decode and convert the audio from the DAT file to a temporary WAV file.
    Use WSOLA.exe to slow down the audio using the following command line
    DRIVE:\PATH\WSOLA DRIVE:\PATH\AVSEQxx.wav DRIVE:\PATH\NTSC.wav 1.04271
    Load the WAV file created above into TMPGEnc as the "Audio Source."
    Load the "VideoCD (NTSCFilm)" template into TMPGEnc.
    Specify the location and name of the "Output file name" with an MPG extension.
    Choose "Motion estimate search (fast)" or "Highest quality (very slow)" in the "Video" tab of the "Setting" dialog.
    Check the "Do not frame rate conversion" in the "Advanced" tab of the "Setting" dialog.
    Press "Start" to convert, encode and multiplex the video and audio.
    Author and Burn Your VCD
    At this point your MPEG file is ready to be authored and burned to a VCD. Various methods exist for this, which are beyond the scope of this Standards Conversion document.

    Back to Conversions

    II. PAL (Film) DVD (25 Fps) -> NTSC (Film) VCD (23.976 Fps)
    Run DVD2AVI and load the decrypted VOBs using the "Open" item in the "File" menu (you need to choose only the first one of a sequence).
    Check the "None" item in the "Field Operation" sub-menu of the "Video" menu.
    Choose the desired audio track number (usually "Track 1") in the "Track Number" sub-menu of the "Audio" menu.
    Check the "Decode" item in the "Dolby Digital" sub-menu of the "Audio" menu.
    Check the "Auto Select" item in the "Channel Format" sub-menu of the "Audio" menu.
    Check the "UltraHigh" item in the "48 -> 44.1 KHz" sub-menu of the "Audio" menu.
    Select the "Save Project" item in the "File" menu.
    Choose a location and filename for the DVD2AVI project name. A small text file with the D2V extension will be created, and the audio track specified above will be extracted from the VOB and decompressed to a WAV file in the same location.
    Use WSOLA.exe to slow down the audio using the following command line
    DRIVE:\PATH\WSOLA DRIVE:\PATH\VTS_xx_x.wav DRIVE:\PATH\NTSC.wav 1.04271
    Load the D2V file into TMPGEnc as the "Video Source."
    NOTE: Cancel the Wizard dialog box which appears when you run TMPGEnc.

    Load the WAV file created above into TMPGEnc as the "Audio Source."
    Load the "VideoCD (NTSCFilm)" template into TMPGEnc.
    Specify the location and name of the "Output file name" with an MPG extension.
    Choose "Motion estimate search (fast)" or "Highest quality (very slow)" in the "Video" tab of the "Setting" dialog.
    Check "Do not frame rate conversion" in the "Advanced" tab of the "Setting" dialog.
    Press "Start" to convert and encode the video.
    Author and Burn Your VCD
    At this point your MPEG file has been created. However, in most cases it will be too large for a single VCD and must be split. Various methods exist for splitting the file and buring the VCD, but they are beyond the scope of this Standards Conversion document.

    Back to Conversions

    III. PAL (Video) DVD (25i Fps) -> NTSC (Film) VCD (23.976 Fps)
    Run DVD2AVI and load the decrypted VOBs using the "Open" item in the "File" menu (you need to choose only the first one of a sequence).
    Check the "None" item in the "Field Operation" sub-menu of the "Video" menu.
    Choose the desired audio track number (usually "Track 1") in the "Track Number" sub-menu of the "Audio" menu.
    Check the "Decode" item in the "Dolby Digital" sub-menu of the "Audio" menu.
    Check the "Auto Select" item in the "Channel Format" sub-menu of the "Audio" menu.
    Check the "UltraHigh" item in the "48 -> 44.1 KHz" sub-menu of the "Audio" menu.
    Select the "Save Project" item in the "File" menu.
    Choose a location and filename for the DVD2AVI project name. A small text file with the D2V extension will be created, and the audio track specified above will be extracted from the VOB and decompressed to a WAV file in the same location.
    Use WSOLA.exe to slow down the audio using the following command line
    DRIVE:\PATH\WSOLA DRIVE:\PATH\VTS_xx_x.wav DRIVE:\PATH\NTSC.wav 1.04271
    Load the D2V file into TMPGEnc as the "Video Source."
    NOTE: Cancel the Wizard dialog box which appears when you run TMPGEnc.

    Load the WAV file created above into TMPGEnc as the "Audio Source."
    Load the "VideoCD (NTSCFilm)" template into TMPGEnc.
    Specify the location and name of the "Output file name" with an MPG extension.
    Choose "Motion estimate search (fast)" or "Highest quality (very slow)" in the "Video" tab of the "Setting" dialog.
    Double-click the "Deinterlace" item in the "Advanced" tab of the "Setting" dialog.
    Choose "Even field (adaptation)" from the pulldown menu and click "OK."
    Check "Do not frame rate conversion" in the "Advanced" tab of the "Setting" dialog.
    Press "Start" to convert and encode the video.
    Author and Burn Your VCD
    At this point your MPEG file has been created. However, in most cases it will be too large for a single VCD and must be split. Various methods exist for splitting the file and buring the VCD, but they are beyond the scope of this Standards Conversion document.

    IV. NTSC (Film) VCD (23.976 Fps) -> PAL VCD (25 Fps)
    Load the source DAT file into TMPGEnc as the "Video Source" (the "Audio Source" selection should automatically change to match the "Video Source.").
    NOTE: Cancel the Wizard dialog box which appears when you run TMPGEnc.

    Select the "Wave file" item in the "Output to file" sub-menu of the "File" menu.
    Choose a location and filename for the destination WAV file.
    Click "Save" to decode and convert the audio from the DAT file to a temporary WAV file.
    Use WSOLA.exe to slow down the audio using the following command line
    DRIVE:\PATH\WSOLA DRIVE:\PATH\AVSEQxx.wav DRIVE:\PATH\NTSC.wav 0.95904
    Load the WAV file created above into TMPGEnc as the "Audio Source."
    Load the "VideoCD (PAL)" template into TMPGEnc.
    Specify the location and name of the "Output file name" with an MPG extension.
    Choose "Motion estimate search (fast)" or "Highest quality (very slow)" in the "Video" tab of the "Setting" dialog.
    Check the "Do not frame rate conversion" in the "Advanced" tab of the "Setting" dialog.
    Press "Start" to convert, encode and multiplex the video and audio.
    Author and Burn Your VCD
    At this point your MPEG file is ready to be authored and burned to a VCD. Various methods exist for this, which are beyond the scope of this Standards Conversion document.

    Back to Conversions

    V. NTSC VCD (29.97 Fps) -> PAL VCD (25 Fps)
    NOTE: Using available software, it is virtually impossible to get good quality from this conversion. Converting a 29.97 fps NTSC VCD to a PAL SVCD or PAL DVD is a better choice when possible.

    Select the "MPEG Tools..." item of the "File" menu in TMPGEnc.
    NOTE: Cancel the Wizard dialog box which appears when you run TMPGEnc.

    Load the source DAT file into the "Input:" field of the "Simple De-multiplex" tab of the "MPEG Tools" dialog.
    Delete the filename and path automatically placed into the "Video output:" field.
    Choose a location and filename for the destination MP2 file in the "Audio output:" field.
    Click "Run" to de-multiplex the audio from the DAT file.
    Close the "MPEG Tools" dialog.
    Create and open a new text file with an AVS extension (to be used with AVISynth), using your favorite text editor (like Notepad).
    Add the following lines, filling in the location and filename of the file you created above:
    DirectShowSource("DRIVE:\PATH\AVSEQxx.dat")
    ConvertFPS(25)
    LanczosResize(352,288)
    ConvertToRGB()
    Save the AVS file.
    Load the AVS file created above into TMPGEnc as the "Video Source."
    Load the "VideoCD (PAL)" template.
    Load the "unlock" template (located in the "Extra" directory).
    Select "Video only" in the "Stream type" region.
    Specify the location and name of the "Output file name" with an M1V extension.
    Choose "Motion estimate search (fast)" or "Highest quality (very slow)" in the "Video" tab of the "Setting" dialog.
    Press "Start" to convert, and encode the video.
    Select the "MPEG Tools..." item of the "File" menu in TMPGEnc.
    Load the M1V video file created above into the "Video input:" field of the "Simple Multiplex" tab of the "MPEG Tools" dialog.
    Load the MP2 audio file created above into the "Audio input:" field of the "Simple Multiplex" tab of the "MPEG Tools" dialog.
    Specify the location and name of the "Output:" field with an MPG extension.
    Click "Run" to multiplex the audio and video into one MPEG file.
    Author and Burn Your VCD
    At this point your MPEG file is ready to be authored and burned to a VCD. Various methods exist for this, which are beyond the scope of this Standards Conversion document.

    Back to Conversions

    VI. PAL (Video) DVD (25i Fps) -> NTSC DVD (29.97i Fps)
    Run DVD2AVI and load the decrypted VOBs using the "Open" item in the "File" menu (you need to choose only the first one of a sequence).
    Check the "None" item in the "Field Operation" sub-menu of the "Video" menu.
    Choose the desired audio track number (usually "Track 1") in the "Track Number" sub-menu of the "Audio" menu.
    Check the "Demux" item in the "Dolby Digital" sub-menu of the "Audio" menu.
    Check the "Auto Select" item in the "Channel Format" sub-menu of the "Audio" menu.
    Check the "Off" item in the "48 -> 44.1 KHz" sub-menu of the "Audio" menu.
    Select the "Save Project" item in the "File" menu.
    Choose a location and filename for the DVD2AVI project name. A small text file with the D2V extension will be created, and the audio track specified above will be extracted from the VOB into an AC3 file in the same location.
    Create and open a new text file with an AVS extension (to be used with AVISynth), using your favorite text editor (like Notepad).
    Add the following lines, filling in the location and filename of the file you created above:
    LoadPlugin("MPEG2DEC.dll")
    LoadPlugin("SmoothDeinterlacer.dll")
    MPEG2Source("DRIVE:\PATH\VTS_xx_x.d2v")
    SmoothDeinterlace(doublerate=true)
    LanczosResize(720,480)
    ChangeFPS(59.94) # or ConvertFPS(59.94)
    SeparateFields()
    SelectEvery(4,1,2)
    Weave()
    ConvertToRGB()
    Save the AVS file.
    Ensure that MPEG2DEC.dll is installed. (If this file is placed in the \WINNT\System32 or \Windows\System directory, the full path is not needed, as illustrated in the above script. Otherwise, add the full path to the LoadPlugin() command.)
    Ensure that SmoothDeinterlacer.dll is installed. (If this file is placed in the \WINNT\System32 or \Windows\System directory, the full path is not needed, as illustrated in the above script. Otherwise, add the full path to the LoadPlugin() command.)
    Load the AVS file into TMPGEnc as the "Video Source."
    NOTE: Cancel the Wizard dialog box which appears when you run TMPGEnc.

    Load the "DVD (NTSC)" template into TMPGEnc.
    Load the "unlock" template (located in the "Extra" directory).
    Select "Video only" in the "Stream type" region.
    Specify the location and name of the "Output file name" with an M2V extension.
    In the "Rate control mode:" field, choose the type of encoding you want. Multi-pass variable bit rate (VBR) settings produce better quality, but take longer to encode. Choose your bit rate based on quality desired, length of video, size of AC3 above, size of other files that will be on the destinaion disc, and the size of destination medium. Do not exceed 9800 kbit/sec.
    Choose "Motion estimate search (fast)" or "Highest quality (very slow)" in the "Motion search precision:" field on the "Video" tab of the "Setting" dialog.
    Press "Start" to convert, and encode the video.
    Author and Burn Your DVD
    At this point your audio and video files are ready to be authored and burned to a DVD. Various methods exist for this, which are beyond the scope of this Standards Conversion document.
