Well I'm happy to say I encoded the first episode with CBR, Q 43 (the old one with the incorrect 31MB sample) and Q 29 (the new one), and yeah. Q 29 all the way :P Fast scenes that got a bit blocky in CBR are way better, though everything is a bit softer with the Q 29.

I'll be updating the guide to reflect this after I get results from the full encode for the disc.

Thanks again

Having another "interesting" problem:

Sure I want to have AC3 audio, but while the MP2 streams actually play back after I compile the DVD, when I use AC3 instead, I get nothing.

Nothing in Power DVD, nothing on my stand alone. heck, not even a volume control in power dvd, as if there IS no audio stream.

AC3 would be great, considering how Mp2 makes my standalong stutter :/

Any ideas? :P

edit: Also, it seems if I view the information in Power DVD, it shows up as Dolby Digital 2.0 128Kbps, but yeah, no sound

Yeah, another edit: I tried encoding with MediaCoder (which in turn uses FFMPEG) and... it works! At least my primary test did (the one AC3 I made played the short clip it does when you do a test compile). I'll see how the rest turns out in the morning. Cheers!

That's the back side of the medal : ac3enc.dll is commonly considered as not reliable. You can check however that you have the same versoin that I have (and never failed me) :
02/04/2004 15:01 11 264 ac3enc.dll

If you don't have this one, I will send it to you.

Well, that was colorful :P

My ac3enc.dll looks to have been created in 2002 and is 14kb.

I'll PM you with my email address.

Really appreciate the help

I'd like to ask: Why is a XviD to KVCD topic here again

Dassin,

Thanks for the guide, but the reality is that we don't want to convert from XviD to KVCD/KDVD, because that's exactly what has brought us into problems in the past. Only RAW, Uncompressed/HuffYUV captured AVIs.
People (newbies) start to download Xvids from the net, start using guides to convert to KVCD, and then complain that the quality is crappy.
So I'm going to close this thread, and keep it for references only, and clearly making a note that this is not the "KVCD Way" of encoding, and not even an advanced method for encoding.
If anyone wants to encode episodes, and then transcode to KVCD/KDVD, they would really be using very high bitrate MPEG-1/2, HuffYUV CODEC, or MJPEG. Nothing else

Thanks,
-kwag
