Hi all, I have got an mpeg file which I've downloaded, but it isn't the right type of format to work in my dvd player, so i need to recode it. Could somebody give me some help here. I usually do avi files using tok and avisynth etc, but i'm not sure the best thing to use for this! Also, i dont know the best way either.
Thanks in Advance, Steve

Drag your file to "Bitrate Viewer".
It will tell you what it is.

How thick am i? .... Maybe the bit where it says 'Stream Type = Mpeg2' might be a clue to whether it is mpeg 1 or 2 LOL

Anyway, now how do i make it kvcd?

Like i said, with avi files i usually use the virtualdub, headac3he, and tok method. Works great.

Thanks for previouys help and any help given, Steve

Hi Steve,

In your .avs script, instead of loading the source with "AviSource(..)", use the following line:
DirectShowSource("YourMPEGFile.mpg")

ok, thanks. Do you just extract the audio the same way with virtual dub and headac3he?

Also, the thing i'm doing is a set of episodes, so could i do some sort of selection screen where you can choose which episode to watch? There will be 3 or 4 episodes on the disc.

Thanks for the help
Steve

Despite Kwag's advice, the best here, as you have mpeg2, is to use dvd2avi to make a d2v project for that mpeg2 and then use avs as usual.

Directshowsource has to be use for mpeg1 only (even if it wworks also with mpeg2). That is why I asked to you to check that point.

So once you have the d2v file, you just treat it as an avi?
what do you put ahere the avisource line is in the avscript?

The d2v project file must be loaded with MPEG2Source instead of AVISource. Other than that, the process is similar.

Ok, thanks all, what about the menu thing? Any ideas if this can be done/how it can be done, just so that you can choose to watch episode 1,2 or 3 and then the disc will skip to the beginning of the chosen episode?

Hi Steve,
If you're using VCDEasy (latest free version) and if you know the exact duration of each episode,
you can use VCDEasy to configure hand-made chapters and to burn your (S)KVCD
Cheers

Can't you just open the tool, try a little BY YOURSELF and ask here when you have a PROBLEM ?

There's too much people here asking for help without even try to make things by theirselves. It's sad...
