I'd suggest you stick to 44.1Khz for compatibility reasons. And mp2 audio won't hurt at all if you use HeadAC3he to encode it

You can't have AC3 audio with (K)VCDs or S(K)VCDs. It's not supported

@Kwag,
I`m going to be putting my encodes together on DVD, (soon as I get it) and was wondering...
Do you think it`s a good idea to use 48kHz for audio (my stand-alone player supports it, with SVCD)
on my Mpeg2s, to by-pass having to redo the audio later for DVD???

Not that it`s all that big a deal...but it is one more thing, I might not have to do.

If your player supports it, then by all means go ahead
I myself only do 44.1Khz, because of the 5 DVD players I have, only one supports 48Khz audio when playing MPEG-1 or MPEG-2 video as VCD/SVCD
So I stick with 44.1.Khz unless I'm doing a KDVD.

Kwag, could you tell me the make/model of that player of yours that supports 48Khz mp2 audio? I know someone looking to buy a new player and they'd like it to support kvcd with 48Khz audio. Unfortunately, I can't recommend my player to him because it is no longer in production or available.

And other than the good advice of "take a kvcd with you to the store and try it out on as many players as possible", do you happen to know of any other kvcd compatible players that support 48Khz audio? I'm affraid none of stores in my friend's area have test models hooked up for customers to try (small area), so relying on trial-and-error and returning uncompatible players would be the only option for him.

Thanks.

It's the JVC XV-F80BK 7 disk changer
It eats just about anything you throw at it. But keep MIN bitrate at 300Kbps.

Thanks Kwag and Vico1 for the details about your players. I think I'll start up a new thread in the Dvd Players forum so I can hopefully get some more 48Khz-compatible feedback from others. The more to choose from, the better the odds of my friend being able to find one.

Just for the record I use 48khz because my player supports it and it saves a bit of time during audio conversion.

I have a panasonic RP62

Exactly my reasoning for using it too! It also sounds a bit better than 44.1Khz audio...maybe not noticeable to some people, but the sound just seems deeper/richer to me.

Audi2honda, could you check out my post in the Standalone DVD Players Forum and let me know if your Panasonic fits my description there? Many thanks. I know my buddy mentioned seeing some Panasonic players at his local store, so that would be great if it's a match!

@ Jorel,
Thanks to you also friend! But I don't know if my friend (in the U.S.) could find the same model Philips player as yours in Brazil? But I will let him know just in case.

EDIT- Here's the link to my other post: http://www.kvcd.net/forum/viewtopic.php?t=4648

Also: sorry for hijacking your thread Sykes ! Seems like you were pretty much done with it though at least!

WLA = Wave length adjust. It's probably used in framerate conversions. You'll find it on the 'net, just use Google.
