    I can't encode an AVI file with TMPG I'm getting an error can't not open or unsupported. Does anyone have a answer to this, I much appreciate help.

    Thanks,

    Downbload VirtualDUB and do the following. Will only take a few minutes.

    1. open the avi 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

    The avi you save will be larger than the source but TMPGEnc should have no problem with it!

    You can also try fiddling with the environmental settings in TMPGEnc, AVI reader to highest and make sure you have the codecs to read the file, as otherwise you will not be able to open it with either.

    The best results come from uncompressing the audio so thats what i always do! I used to tell people to raise the DirectShow File Reader priority until it was at the top of the list but about 40% still came back and said something like, there still is no audio or the audio is out of sync or the audio sounds really bad etc etc... wheras uncompressing has had a 100% success rate so far, im still waiting to hear either of the above remaining problems :)
