    I all,

    Im trying to encode video for my new Bauhn tv Model: AS-47LE3D1.The video specs it plays are listed in the manual as follows;

    Code:
    Video Format:        divx,MPEG2,MPEG4,H264/AVC
    Framerate:           25
    Audio Format:        MPEG,MP3
    
    I have 2 video files but only one works.I have compared the 2 and would like to know what the difference is so that I can re-encode my videos to a set standard so I will know that they will work.

    belowis a comparison of the two files using gspot.The yogi bear video works and the cars 2 video wont.

    Yogi Bear
    Video Codec: XviD 1.1.2 Final
    Video Bitrate (kbps): 1601
    BVOP ("BVOP" or ""):
    NVOP ("NVOP" or ""): N-VOP
    Audio Sample Rate (Hz): 44100
    Audio Bitrate(kbps): 320
    Audio Bitrate Type ("CBR" or "VBR"): CBR

    Cars 2
    Video Codec: XviD ISO MPEG-4
    Video Bitrate (kbps): 809
    BVOP ("BVOP" or ""): B-VOP
    NVOP ("NVOP" or ""):
    Audio Sample Rate (Hz): 48000
    Audio Bitrate(kbps): 117
    Audio Bitrate Type ("CBR" or "VBR"): VBR

    Any ideas on what I would need to change in handbrake for example to get the cars 2 file to work.

    Thanks Dean

    Neither the audio format nor the frame rate is shown in the comparisons.
    Instead of GSpot, use MediaInfo.Text view gives most of the information.

    Both of the files list XviD - I'm not sure that Handbrake outputs AVI anymore;I thought it was mp4 or MKV now.

    My first thought here is that Cars 2 has VBR audio. Not a good idea for xvid. But I also see that the TV doesn't support xvid. Divx isn't the same thing. Your TV will obviously play some xvid, but to make them most compliant, you're probably going to want to make them something else.

    I recommend switching to MP4, and also to not bother downloading rips of DVDs. Right now good 720p bluray rips can be downloaded that are 600mb-800mb. 1080p rips from 1gb to 2gb. There's very little reason to bother downloading non-HD xvid or divx rips from DVD when you can get HD rips for very nearly the same amount of disk storage used.
