Hi, could use some help with mpg files I've taken from SVCDs which won't play properly by themselves on my Philips DVP642 set-top dvd/divx player. Here's what I've done so far: 1) downloaded two sets of bin/cue files representing two SVCDS 2) used Nero to create the SVCDs (selecting image recorder instead of actually burning discs) 3) used Daemon Tools to mount the SVCD images, then copied the AVSEQ01.MPG files from each SVCD's MPEG2 folder to another folder on my desktop 4) previewed the resulting mpg files on my PC to make sure they still looked the same as they did as SVCDs, then burned them to a dvd-r with Nero and stuck them in my Philips, assuming they'd play great as other mpg files have. The problem is I get the red VCD logo on my Philips (instead of the mpg2 logo I usually get), and when I start to play the files they are completely blocky/pixelated with weird color bars everywhere. Apparently all mpg files aren't created equal, even though the files play great by themselves in Window Media Player, Nero Showtime, or any other software app. Obviously extracting a "good" mpg2 file from a SVCD isn't just as simple as yanking the mpg file out of it. Is there some extra info attached to the mpg file in a SVCD that causes it to act so funky when viewed naked? Since, like a true genius, I've already deleted the original bin/cue files AND the SVCD files I created from them, I'm kind of stuck. Can someone please tell me how I can process these mpg files to make them compatible on the DVP642? I have Womble and VirtualDub. Thanks for any help!
