Hi chaps, newbie here, so please forgive me if I am asking something which is common knowledge.
I have a number of AVIs which I want to burn ont VCDs using the KVCDx3 template, as everyone is raving about the quality it produces.

I tried the hard way :-
-use TMPGenc and the KVCDx3 template to dump the video only from the AVI,
-use virtualDub to dump the wav from the AVI,
-use BBmpeg to multiplex them together,

but the final mpeg does not work, has a number of problems, sometimes no sound etc.

Clearly there is something I do wrong; but as I do not need to do anything complex, and I have the combined video/audio in an AVI to start with, I was wondering if I could do the following:

use the KVCDx3 template in TMPGenc but select "audio+Video" so it produces an mpeg file, which I can then burn on a VCD. In effect, this will make the AVI--> mpeg transformation a one-step process.

Can I do this?

Can anyone suggest a different, simple way of doing the AVI--> mpeg transformation using the KVCDx3 template, without spliting the avi to audio/video?

Thanks in advance for any help

Thanks for the quick reply, Kwag. The procedure described in the guide is roughly the one I followed, although I obviously made a mistake somewhere.

However, my question is whether I can take advantage of your template settings and...
use the KVCDx3 template in TMPGenc but select "audio+Video" so it produces an mpeg file, which I can then burn on a VCD. In effect, this will make the AVI--> mpeg transformation a one-step process.
Now, I might not get as good sound as with the "proper" method, but would it work??

Thanks

I don't see why it wouldn't work providing your standalone can play TMPGEnc-muxed streams. As you say, the audio quality won't be anywhere near as good as you get with HeadAC3he.
