hi guys

i have recently had a load of films convereted to kvcd only to find that my DVD player wont play them.

can someone tell me how to convert a kvcd to divx.avi so i can burn them to DVD useing WINAVI or is there a codex/plugin that will allow WINAVI to make a dvd from the kvcd file ???

thanks

I don't now this prog (winavi) but jsut forget what you want to do ! Converting an already converted video (twice !) only leads to awfully bad results !
YOu can turn your KVCD into DVD with very few steps if they are in MPEG2.
Do you know if they are MPEG1 or MPEG2 ?

the files are both mpeg 1 and 2
i have used TMPGEnc Plus 2.5 to author dvd's but these wont play in any of my dvd players
i use winavi to convert to dvd (will convert avi/mpeg/wmv ect) to make my dvds rather that TMPG as TMGP take along time to make a authered dvd (in my case up to 30 hrs ) where as WINAVI will do the same in about 1 hr but it wont take a KVCD

I really don't see what is the purpose to have something unwatchable in 1 hour insteed of something that can be good after 30 hours.

But that's your choice...

That is because you don't usally do KDVD .
Basic templates of tempgenc for doing DVD aren't the best ones. Try the same thing with a KDVD template (even if it takes 30 hours !) and see the difference.

Now for your current problem; there are a lot of threads here about KVCD -> KDVD, just read a little the forums.
