All right, I make my living installing, configuring and managing networks - firewalls, e-mail, file and print, portals, desktop and server management, etc...

But when I read through these forums, you might as well be writing in Chinese!

I am trying to copy DVD using DVD2SVCD v1.2.1 and TMPGEnc. I've downloaded the "KDVD-720x480-Full-D1-_NTSC_.mcf" template and copied it to my TMPGEnc template directory (according to a test CD I downloaded, my DVD player supports this format - a Panasonic DVD-RV32). I've followed Avalon's guide to using DVD2SVCD to make KVCDs.

In one of his screenshots, he mentions that I should select MPEG-2 as the "Output File Type" in the Misc tab, but instead I have SVCD DVD and VCD. I selected SVCD.

Everything looks like it works fine, except when I stick the CD in my player - the image is clear, but choppy as hell, as is the sound!

I'd appreciate any clear guidelines as to why this is happening. What am I missing? Or doing wrong?

ANy help would be Greatly Appreciated!

Thanks!

Jacques

Hi Kwag

Yes, I DID try that! I was able to play most of them, including the kvcd-704x480 PLUS.

That means that you tested your standalone player with MPEG1 samples and it was okay. Now you are encoding in MPEG2 and it's choppy.

So... ?

Select VCD under DVD2SVCD settings and everything should be okay !

(in its last version DVD2SVCD renamed "MPEG1" and "MPEG2" option to "VCD" and "SVCD". Very confusing )

Ah! Ok...now it's starting to make sense.

One more question, though: how does DVD2SVCD know to use the KVCD MCF template for TMPGEnc that I downloaded and copied to the TMPGEnc template directory?

It doens't. But I think that Avalon provides a ini file for DVD2SVCD in its guide ? If not, you aren't doing KVCD so
