    OK, Im trying to convert my Xvid file to MPEG and Im having a few troubles. The why that thought would be best would be to use TPMGEnc but there was no audio in the output file. So then I thought about using virtualdub to extract the audio first. This presented a new problem. I get the error message "The requested audio compression is not compatible with the input format. check that the sampling rate and and channel count match those of the requested format" I find this a bit strange as I've selected no change from the input file to the output. I suspect that this is codec related but I have the Xvid codec and the films play fine in WMP. Anyone got any ideas?

    It could be AC3 given the source of the movie. I didnt know I'd need a filter, I thought the codec would cover both ripping,encoding and playback of the audio. Where can I get a filter from?

    OK I've managed to extract the audio to a .wav but now I have a new problem. When converting use TPMEnc, after about 6mins I loose the picture totally and it stops converting the picture. The original file plays fine all the way through but even the output has a black screen after this point. Any idea?

    Try installing 2 xvid codecs, dont use nemo codecs... get them from doom9.net , and use the above vfapi pluggin settings, other than that i aint got a clue unless the file is corrupt..
