KVCD: Fit 120-minute video on 80-minute CD-R ?
it seems every time i try to encode a video with the templates i have download from this site they seem to come out bigger than if i were to encode them in th standard vcd format.

that seems to help me understand the problem somewhat :( but the predictoins that that tmpge give seem to right.

what i don't understan is how when u use the kvcdx3 templates u get 1min/5MB but when i use it i get 1min/19MB.

what am i doin wroung

Hi choppy,

19MB per minute is way too much 8O . Something is definitely wrong. What are you trying to encode? Are you using a .avs script to feed TMPEG?, or are you reading the .d2v directly?

I am encoding a music video to see the comparison to a standard vcd

avs script to feed
.d2v directly?
i have no clue as to what those are

what i did was download the template and put it in the template foulder in tMPGenc, then i select it from the encode wissard and it tells me each 1 minute will be around 19MB :(

same problem
hey, i am having the same problem. when i load my avs into tmpgenc and then load the kvcdx3 template, it says 19 per minute what is that!!

@choppy and edmund,

You can't use TMPEG's wizard for CQ encoding modes. Please read here for information on file size prediction:

Also read about FitCD and AviSynth.

WOAH now i am completely lost.

I did not know there were other steps involed to make a kvcd.

all i am trying to do is take a 2 disc vcd movie and encode it into the kvcd format so i can have more time on the disc to fit it on one cd rather than 2
