Argh! I keep running into so many problems. Like I said if you have been following my other post, everything started out FINE! Just PERFECT! I've been burning a series onto DVDs, and episodes 1-12 worked PERFECTLY! Not a single problem. Then all of a sudden things are coming up all wierd. Allright, so I'll cut to the chase. I got really annoyed with TMPGEnc, because after messing around with it I finally got it back to how it used to be, but now I have run into yet another problem. No matter what AVI I try to convert to MPEG, no matter how I go about either decompressing the audio with virtualdub, or extracting it from the AVI itself to convert into an MP2 with BeSweet, I get the same results: The VIDEO speeds WAY ahead of the audio after its converted to MPEG-2!!! Its not a problem with the files, otherwise why would they all be like that, especially after I SUCCESSFULLY burned 11 onto DVDs already! I tried other videos too. It seems that no matter what I convert into mpeg, no matter what program I use (I tried TMPGEnc AND WinAVI). Now, I'm a really big newb to this kind of stuff, but I have a little theory. Earlier I was trying to help my friend succeed in playing MPEG-2 files on his computer. I downloaded a few codecs and stuff needed in order to play MPEG-2 files so I could send it to him over MSN. Now, I actually installed a few of these things on my system. I have no idea what the hell I was thinking, probobly just trying to get a head start and be able to walk him through it. (Visual self-taught learner here x_X) Now, since I was already able to play MPEG-2 files on my computer, I wonder if the codec (and some splitter I downloaded) might be working in unison with my original codec, causing a boost in video speed. I know its a really stupid theory, but its all I got, because I have no idea what I'm doing as you can see. Any help will be greatly appreciated. Thank you very much.
