    Hi, I posted a msg a few min ago about problems watching my VCD movie that I burned that I got off of Sharelive
    well, when I play it in my dvd player, it comes all jumbled up and the picture is fucked.....but I just tried playing it in my computer, and my comp has no problem playing this movie....now, my dvd player has never had a problem playing vcds or svcds before...can anybody help me on why it would be doing this?

    Ok, i'll show you a process i use with PAL telesyncs. Im in europe so i use PAL but downloaded PAL movies playback horribly, especially the sound. There is a way out though. It requires TMPGEnc, VCDEasy and Nero Burning Rom but dont worry, there is no encoding!! :)

    Open up VCDEasy and click tools then click the mpeg tools button. Look at the CDXA2MPEG prog at the bottom, on the dat file click the browse button and open the avseq01.dat file. then click browse beside the mpeg area and browse for somewhere to save the file and make sure to add a filename with .mpg on it. Then click convert and it will rip off the movie!

    Now open TMPGEnc and click file - mpeg tools. Click the simple multiplex tab and click the browse buttong beside video and add in the file you just ripped with VCDEasy, that should automatically do the input audio aswell, then make sure the output mpeg has a different filename. Change Video Type from MPEG-1 System (Automatic) to MPEG-1 VideoCD!. Then click RUN.

    Now open Nero Burning Rom and start a new vcd compilation. Drag the file from the file browser in nero to the compilation window and when its done checking the file click file - write cd. That should do it! If its still the same, tell me!

    Ok, I did everything that you said, step by step, the vcd still plays perfect in my computer, but on my dvd player its all garbled up and in black and white.....is there anything else I could try? could it possibly be my player? I have a Magnavox VDV450, I haven't played any VCD's in it yet, only SVCDs, but I can't imagine why it would play svcd but not vcd....

    I actually downloaded another version of cradle 2 the grave in mpeg format, and burned it myself with nero, rather then .bin/.cue, and it plays fine in my dvd player....any thoughts on why the first one wouldn't play in my dvd player but played fine on my comp??
    btw..thanks for all your help dela

    That may be because the .bin/.cue could have been made with different burning software and it may not have been fully compatible with your dvd player!
