First of all it's nice to see all the progress that happened when I was gone (due to school and all that stuff). But that progress also created a lot of questions for me.

I'm still a fan of 1 CD Encodes, since I use my DVD Writer only for Xbox Backups. So I want to continue to back up my DVD's to one single CD - R as KVCD (MPEG - 1).

I saw the thread where kwag announced that he stopped the support for TMPGEnc. And I also saw all the users in here, using that so called Mencoder.

So my simple question is:

Based on quality, which encoder is the best for DVD -> KVCD on one single CD - R ?

It's still TMPGEnc, not the 3.0 but the 2.5x ones.

MEncoder is still in alpha phase and definitely not suitable for MPEG-1.

KVCD mpeg1: TMPGEnc 2.5x (avoid completely 2.59, it is bugged)
KVCD mpeg2: Cinema Craft Encoder.

At the risk of repeating the same thing and spamming:

Tmpgenc with cqmatic 1204 or 1301 has given me beautiful 1 disk kvcd's.
Time up to 122 mins (that was cq_vbr 17, a little rough, but still better than a standard vcd) fit quite nicely on 80 mins. Audio is 112 or 128 depending on room available (movie time).

My usual cq_vbr is 24.5 to 26.66..

(About what would that be comparable to in CQ - i think it was dialhot who said to never go below 50 in CQ, and 60 + is really a minimum for good encodes. So what's the good-average for cq_vbr??)

I think CQ_VBR is recommended for 352x240/288 and CQ for all the other resolutions.
