Hey,

It's been a while since I made a skvcd, but recently i made one again. I was testing HC as encoder. The result is a very nice encoding, but when i burn it, the movie starts playing in the middle. I just leaps to 1 hour and 27 minutes and goes on from there.

What am i doing wrong here?!

Some specs:

HCenc 0.17
Avisynth 2.56
Audio 44.1, mpeg2@160kbps (besweet)
Video: mpeg2, 480x576 (25fps)
Multiplexed with mplex
Created a bin/cue with VCDeasy (created an SVCD)
Burned with imgburn @ 1-speed

I have tried this:

-in mplex: adding/removing SVCD scan offsets
-in vcdeasy: checking/unchecking "update SVCD scan offset"

Can someone help me with this?

You mean that happens both playing in the PC and in the SAP?
Did you add chapters to your ksvcd?
Try creating the image without chapters and burn it in a CDRW.
I never had that issue before but I'd blame it on VCDEasy and a chapters bug.
Try VCDEasy 1.1.5.2 free if you're running a later build.
Cheers

no, it only occurs in the sap. I've tried with and without chapters,
and I'm using a free version. I have made dozens of good kvcd's with
this version...

Hmmm, but did you set HCEnc to flag the chapters while encoding?
Maybe it's a bug in HC...
I've never used it for KSVCD yet.

You were young and the computer science was prehistory but remember the old days : a mpeg is not a vob and can't contain chapters. VCDeasy takes care of that

@gamma
did you do SVCD before, or you used to do VCD ?

I've always made svcd, because it's the only thing both my SAP en I like
I always did encoding with TMPG, muxing with BBMpeg and authoring with VCDEasy, and always worked like a charm.

I've thrown away the HC log unfortunately.... settings i remember:

GOP: 25
Constant Quant: 6 (one pass)
max bitrate 2300
used avisynth script, v2.56
open gop (option "closed gop": off)
write sequence end code : on

Hmm, then I'm affraid I'm clueless...
Have you tried with tmpgenc just to see if it still works?
I mean, building a new KSVCD from scratch and not using one that you've done in the past?
Cheers

Yep, that's what I thought also, TMPG is running as we speak

Well, I made the same encode again with HCenc, Quenc and TMPGenc.
ALL of them started in the middle of the movie when I put them in the SAP.

After tweaking around I finally got the solution! I made BIN/CUE images with VCDEasy, and burnt them with Imgburn. On the resulting CD the movie starts in the middle.

BUT, when I burn the image with Nero, everything plays fine!

I'm using Imgburn 1.1.0.0.

Strange huh?!

No, I didn't try v1.2.0.0.....I'll download it and try again with this new version!

This is unexplainable that you have a difference when burning a cue/bin .
Whatever the tool, the result should be the same

This won't explain the issue but just to know did you try to burn directly with VCDEasy ?

Well, after many experimenting this is the result:

-burning directly with vcdeasy: result ok
-a bin/cue made with vcdeasy burned with Imgburn: result not ok
-Using nero to burn the same bin/cue: result ok
-mounting the bin/cue with Daemon tools works correctly

I tried different settings in vcdeasy (normal/detailed BIN/CUE), and different encoders to produce the MPEG stream.

I think you should contact the author of ImgBurn. He would probably like to know if his tool doesn't work correctly.

Yep, that's also what I was going to ask you.
BTW have you tried it with ImgBurn 1.1/1.2/1.3 or just with 1.3?
Cheers

I think that's the best indeed. But, other images work perfect with imgburn. I'm thinking that vcdeasy has much todo with it, that the combo vcdeasy - imgburn just doesn't work.

I've tried with v1.1 and 1.2, with both the same result.

Can anyone confirm this problem?

The funny thing is that the same cue/bin combination works in Nero. That's why you should report the author so that he may check whether his program is at fault.
