DVD2KVCD




DVD2KVCD is a plugin for DVD2SVCD. This program will set up KVCD settings in DVD2SVCD, and install necessary aviynth filters / scripts.

The program should be easy to use, and if you install BurnOut too, you will only have to insert a CD-R, Run DVD2KVCD and hit GO in DVD2SVCD. After some hours you'll have a KVCD in your CD-writer!

Downloads:
READ THIS:
If you need help, DOWNLOAD THE LATEST VERSION of DVD2KVCD (at the moment DVD2KVCD lite v 0.2) and try this version before you post your problem. Then, if you still have problems, post your LOG (DVD2KVCD_log.txt in your DVD2SVCD's working directory). And once again, the pluggin is for DVD -> (K)(S)VCD, and NOT Avi -> (K)(S)VCD. Of course you can try Avi -> (K)(S)VCD, but I strongly don't recomand this, and this can make a lot of trouble for you.

IMPORTANT!!!
Do you got errormessages or other problems with DVD2KVCD, try to install DVD2SVCD to C:\DVD2SVCD, not C:\Program Files\DVD2SVCD.
This may also fix BurnOut problems!
Please report your results!

I'm at my girlfriends house now, and so can't download the program (well, I could, but she doesn't have the hardware to run or use D2S), but will as soon as I get home.

A quick question for you Azel; do I have to back up my ini files before using this, or do they remain untouched?

Seems very good my friend. Anything to make life easier for mw

thanks

Tom

When starting up the program and initiating DVD2SVCD, under the bitrate tab, all of the CD sizes default to 8000 MB?

Any idea?

I didn't see any "prediction" related buttons or whathaveyou in your app. I've ben testing
this out the MS Excel way, via the manual way (though I haven't gotten it nailed accurately
yet) I want to basically translate it from my Excel process, to my app's, and I'm just
curious how your approach is, that's all.

In any case, let me know if I'm doing anything wrong. I'm just curious, k?

Yes, I recomand you to make a backup. DVD2KVCD will change a lot of settings, and TMPGEnc path will be changed too DVD2KVCD's path.
I'll make an "autobackup" in the next version.

DVD2KVCD use this formula:
CDROM User Data size: 2324 (mode 2 block size) * 75 (frames/sec) * 60 (sec) * (CDsize (80)) (min) = 836 640 000.
So don't care about the settings under the bitrate tab. I'll fix it in the next version!

Well I haven't add any settings for the prediction yet, and the prediction is still a litle bit simple. When you finished videoencoding, you can see DVD2KVCD_Log.txt in DVD2SVCD's working dir.
I made it simple, because I want to use CQmatic in later versions. It seems to be the best predictor

I didn't understand everything in your reply (you see my english is terrible... ).
But the prediction works like this:

1) First DVD2KVCD make a test clip with the best reselution and "worst CQ value". If the testclip becomes larger than the calculated test clip, it tries the next template untill the filesize becomes less than caculated filesize.

2) DVD2KVCD use kwag's manual prediction. Encoding starts when the filesize of the testclip is -/+ 0,1 % of calculated filesize.

@ azel..

Ok -- thanks. I just thought there was a hidden button or first had to fill in
something, to get prediction enabled, thats all. Thanks again.

I am very interested to give this a try, but I note prediction is being done at 25fps for ntsc. Perhaps a warning if NTSC is checked that it is not operational?

I almost never encode NTSC DVD's, so it's hard too find the buggs when encoding NTSC. So thank you for the reply DDogg
I'll change frame rate from 25 fps -> 23,976 / 29.97 when converting NTSC.
Note: Video format will automaticly choosen before videoencoding. So the PAL/NTSC option in the DVD2KVCD menu is only for the preveiw window

This is still a beta version . Could you post the DVD2KVCD_log.txt in DVD2SVCD's output directory??? If you do I can try to solve the problem, and fix it in the next version

Unfortunately i closed the program down, but will try again, and send u the log asap.

Didnt mean to sound to harsh when i said i was dissappointed, just the fact that i couldnt get it to work when others could.

Thx
