The main reason being that i dont have a DVD burner but do have a CD burner and would like movies to fit on one disk. Last night sucess and i felt the need to thank this board for all its help and to provide a step by step guide for the newbie KVCD author. A greate deal of the KVCD information that helped me was in this post, http://forums.afterdawn.com/thread_view.cfm/124272,) [bold]Software.[/bold] The following is the software i had to install to get everything working. These may not be the best software but they work for me. - Divx codex's - AC3filter - kvcd templates ( http://kvcd.net/dvd-models.html) - DirectX 9 (audioconverter requires this) - Audioconverter - TMPGenc - Nero [bold]extract the audio from the AVI file[/bold] Extract the audio from the AVI file using audioconverter. I use all the default options and it creates a WAV file in the same directory as the AVI [bold]create an MPG file from an AVI file using TMPGenc[/bold] I use this procedure for creating a VCD to create the MPG file, mainly due to the fact that I am familiar with it. (page 1/5) - Using the TMPGenc wizard select PAL, click next (page 2/5) - Select a video file (AVI), and audio file (WAV) and an aspect ration (4:3 635 line), click next (page 3/5) – click next (page 4/5) – click next (page 5/5) – click OK, when asked whether you want to create the file, click yes This should result in a perfectly playable MPG file.

It does its thing for a while and when complete have a perfectly usable KVCD. I will edit this post with some stats concerning files sizes and some comments concerning quality later (I am at work now). I will also be attempting to tweak some of the seetings to decrease the file size without affeting quality too much. Anyone got anu tips in this area. Tim.
