I've discovered that when converting an XviD to SVCD, when you use the header trick on the resulting MPEG 2, (by multiplexing that MPEG 2 using TMPEGEnc) that the multiplexed file may may show a green screen when you play it on your computer (even with the correct codecs installed) or not show video at all and only sound. BUT if you make a bin out of that file anyway and burn it, turns out it shows exactly like the SVCD does (the video is fine as well as the sound) on your standalone DVD player. Go figure? I figured I'd post this for all you guys out there that have been pulling out your hairs out (As I have been), when you find that using the header trick, produces an unviewable or unacceptable result when converting an XviD . TRUST me , burn it anyway, It'll work on that standalone. If other header tricked MPEG2's have worked. (i.e such as if the original source was an MPEG2) Hope this helps those frustrated trying to convert XviD's
