I followed the directins in one of the threads enabling me to load the xvid video into TMPGEn for conversion and it worked fine. Conversion took 1 hour for 22min of video which was fine but upon playing the new mpg file I noticed slight freezing of the video every other second as it played, it didn't loose sync it was just freezing ever so slightly. Is there a setting I missed TMPGEn that could solve this? I did have other programs running during the conversion but I wasn't using the machine while it was converting. Anyone know how to solve this? thanks!
