    I tried to convert 4 .avi files with subtitles into .vob files with the latest pay version of DivxtoDVD and everything seemed to be ok till the end when it just finished without a prompt to let me know. I figured something was wrong with the .vob files so I dragged them over to virtual dub to check and sure enough I get this error message:

    MPEG Import Filter:invalid pack at position 3: marker bit not set;possibly MPEG 2 stream

    what does this mean? How can I possibly fix this problem?

    thanks so much

    I had the same problem, and after much searching, I came across this post in another forum:

    VirtualDub doesn't support MPEG-2 videos. For VirtualDub with MPEG-2 support, downloand the program at this site:

    Hope this works for you!
