The samples that are here to download play on my DVD player with no problems at all, all six clips.

Any AVI that I convert to KVCD using the idiot's guide has no audio. I know that my DVD player is KVCD compatable, I've followed the guide word for word, so what the heck is going wrong?

Probably... the guide.

Note: where don't you have sound : on the standalone or also on the PC ?

It's the standalone that won't play the audio.

Could you recommend a better guide? The reason I started with the idiots guide (aside from me being an idiot ) was because I figured I should learn the basics first. If even the easiest way is a huge pain in the ass, might as well skip it and learn the hard way I suppose.

So your standalone do not support KVCD. There is nothing strange in the guide that can lead to have a mute audio like this. Even if I read that you tested the KVCD samples.

Note : the samples are made in VCD. Did you do yours in SVCD or VCD ?

If your idea was to learn the basics first, then go to "KVCD level 2", that is the correct way to proceed. Very often people take this guide because "it's simple". Sorry but making a decent KVCD is not simple.
There is no real guidfe for avi->kvcd but the ones for DVD->KVCD are the ones to use. The only thing that change is the first part (makign a D2V project is useless with an avi).

I made mine as non-standard VCDs.

I guess I'll look into getting a new DVD player. Thanks for the help.

Before you go spending $ on a new player, I would suggest that you try one more time and make absolutely certain that you have followed every single step of the guide correctly (and if it still doesn't work, then do as Dialhot suggested and try using a different guide like the "KVCD from Scratch" Guide, and see if that works better for you).

If you have already burned and tried the KVCD Compatibility Test CD in your player and those clips play fine, then it doesn't seem to make much sense that the one you created would not play fine as well, unless you did something differently or incorrectly. (I'm also positive Kwag did not use the process presented by the "Idiot's Guide" to create the test clips on the Compatibility CD, so this guide might be your problem).

Have you made sure that your audio is 44.1kHz CBR .mp2, and not 48kHz or VBR?

Did you mux video and audio as "MPEG-1 VideoCD (Non-Standard)" in TMPG? (have you tried muxing with bbmpeg instead?).

You also should burn your KVCDs at slower speeds like 4x or 8x instead of the 24x speed mentioned in the Idiot's Guide. Burning too fast can cause playback problems.

Good luck,
-d&c
