@ rds_correia
They are actually in English

Ok i have a few questions, i will admit i don't understand hardly anything about this encoder(i was like this with kvcd and tmpge at the beginning so i will probably get it eventually)

My computer is rather slow(celeron 900)-256 ram)but don't have problems with tmpge

Is Mencoder computer dependent-not meaning speed or anything but when i start it all the writing in the dos box seems to contain a few errors,like it says

Code:
Warning-this is not optimal 
Recompile  Mplayer with disable-runtime-cpudetection
and al lot of font and documents and settings messages
ALso prediction -when you use 2 pass it should use the bitrate you pick to find the correct size minus audio to fit on 1 cd?

Finally my finished encode has problems -it plays fine on the computer but in the standalone it gets horrible(pixels all over the place and stops for a second once in a while)

I appreciate the help because i would like to get this thing working.

MEncoder comes from Linux world and in Linux world most tools can be tweak compiled for your CPU.
VM compiled it generically.
Don't worry about that message.

Don't know anything about 2-pass with any encoder...
Wait for someone else explanation.

Can you give us your command line and can you tell us how you muxed the audio/video and in which format KVCD/KSVCD/KDVD?

Thanx rds

I don't even know what the command line is and as far as muxing i did the same way as tmpge through bbmpeg <i know the audio and the video is way out of sync but i wanted to get the video part right before i get involved thrying to mux them together

edit-just checked the dvd to kvcd config file and it has sid=0 ,still getting subs do i need to delete this totally

As i am sure you are at me right now i do appreciate the help

Thanx

If you are in NTSC, you need to enable pulldown flag after encoding. Just do:

pulldown.exe mencoder_produced_file.m2v file2_pd.m2v.

Maybe I could add automatic pulldown via pulldown.exe

About two pass:
The encoder encodes the movie twice. In the first encode, it records a logfile with information about each frame.
On the second pass, the encoder already "know" about the whole movie and can allocate bitrate in the best way possible. This is the theory, of course.

Thanx vmesquita for the explanation on 2 pass

When you say

Quote:
If you are in NTSC
Do you mean is the source 29.97 or am in NTSC land(which is yes)

Can you please tell me what exactly
i am to do with this line

Code:
pulldown.exe mencoder_produced_file.m2v file2_pd.m2v.
It sucks being a pain in the ***

Thanx Buddy

Sorry, I should have been more specific. If you in NTSC and have a movie DVD (And you checked the Forced Film box in Mencode-me), you need the pulldown.exe step.

But I found out it can be done using this front-end:
http://guiguy.wminds.com/downloads/p...chfe/down.html

Should be much easier.

Hi,
Pretty easy.
You download here and scroll down until you find S/VCD Tools section.
There is a zip file with pulldown.exe for download.
You'll have to extract it from the zip and put it in the folder where you have MEncoder-me installed.
Now push windows start button, press Run... and type cmd.
Press enter.
A command line (or dos-box) opens.
navigate to the directory where you have MEncoderME installed.
If MEncoderMe is installed at c:\MEncoderME type cd\MEncoderME and press enter.
Now type carefully VMs command in the dos-box and press enter again.
Wait until it finishes. It should take a while.
And that it folks
Cheers

EDIT:
In the Support Utils of the same download page you will find a DoPulldown utility which is a GUI to Pulldown.exe

Ok guys had to take a break last night .

Thought i should mention that i am doing kvcd not kdvd -is pulldown still necessary


It is deffinately the pulldown that is giving me a problem because i tried an avi and it worked perfect so

This is the order i am doing things please tell me if correct

1.use the MEencoderME GUI and set everything as what i need
2.encode
3.Run pulldown now?
4.mux audio and video together

as far as pulldown i couldn't get th command line to work abd the GUI the dopulldown.exe needs .mpv file but the other GUI that i got is pulldownbatchfe but i am not sure which options to check.

Code:
nopulldown-will not insert the flags for 2:3 pulldown
framerate -23.976   25   29.97
norff - strips out all rff flags
tff -changes the field order - odd     even
notimecodes-doesn't recalculate timecodes for new framerate
prog_seq -mark entire stream as -progressive   interlace
prog_frames -mark entire stream as -progressive   interlace
thanx again

bigggt,

Sorry for misleading you, I assumed you were doing KDVD/KSVCD (mpeg2), so pulldown would be necessary for 23.976 stuff. For KVCD (mpeg1), there's no need for pulldows since MPEG1 doesn't support pulldown flag.

I'm sure VMesquita will update his tool because of this issue.
This is, though, a very easy fix for those who don't want to wait for a new release from him.
There is a directory called templates with 4 templates inside.
From what I've found only 2 are affected by the "subs" problem.
Those are DVD to KSVCD and DVD to KVCD.
So open one of these with windows notepad and erase the line that says sid=0.
I mean the whole line not only the text on it
Take care not to erase other stuff from the line above and below that one.
Now do the same with the other file and you're set to.
Now don't expect that VMesquita give us all a tool fully featured and without some bugs in 2 days (like I
have seen one guy doing somewhere on the Inet).
This is goint to take some time before we can say it's good enough for our regular everyday encodings.
Even because VM is working in more than one tool at the same time: DIKO and MEncode-ME.
So let's wait a few weeks and keep giving him some feedback on his work
Cheers

@vmesquita

Sorry buddy this was my fault from the beggining by not saying what i was doing ,i have only been trying 1 dvd source so it could be the source i will try a different one today.

Thanx for your hel[p

@ rds_correia

Thanx for the help i actually put a # in front of it and it worked i was only mentioning becuase it said =0 so i thought that meant no subs ,just thought i would mention it incase it was a bug or something.

I would just like to clarify that i am not complaining or expecting this tool to be bug free after a few days ,its just i have no idea on how to fix things on my own ,so this is the reason for all my stupid questions and I just wait patinetly for a response

Let me say further that without this tool i would be totally lost so Thanks

Now if it is only a source problem on my end i might have gotten this thing from the beginning with your guide( i assumed i was doing something incorrect) i will feel pretty for not trying another source

Like they say: s**t happens.
No problem buddy.
I just don't want to spook VMesquita with too many bugs to solve in so few hours
I'm just affraid he drops Mencode-Me because of lack of spare time with DIKO and all.
Well I guess is okay for everybody to report what they feel it's not working.
But MEncode-Me is not and will not be ready for sometime.
I mean it already works but lacks some features that can be added in a medium term solution.
So V, don't feel intimidated if we receive some posts mentioning some problems.
We can wait for you to fix them when you have some time.
the guy has a life away from his PC's desk and it's summer time in Brasil, now: 33ºC in Rio de Janeiro right now.
Oh boy compared to our 16ºC here in Lisbon...

Hi rds_correia,

Thanks for your concerns. Wheater is not so good anymore. So here's what happed:

Mencode-Me 0.2!


This is a great release, I think it's so much better than 0.11. But it's my oppinion, see for yourself. I hope you don't mind that I did a big package again, but that's because I included *the latest Mencoder CVS* with *the latest Libavcodec CVS*!

Download link and ChangeLog in first message. Enjoy!

PS: I just downloaded Kurumin (a brazilian Linux distro derived from Knoppix) and now I plan to compile for Linux (if god helps me). BTW, rds_correa, since you also speak portuguese (with some small differences), I really recommend this Distro for you. It has everything is a 192 Mb Mini-CD. And I really mean everything! Check here:

Vmesquita, ...

a) Thanks for the Bitratecalculator! But it seems that it would be lovely to apply a "Numer of audiostreams" button as the most people will do put 2 movies incl. 2 audios on a DVD-R The calculation of the mediasize when doing two movies can still be inserted manually, means (1/2 from 4480MB).

Nice work!

b) I saw the latest mencoder.exe you provided with this download is a bit slower, .... will there be some disadvantages if I use the latest build for athlon you did provide some days ago .... as it gives me a plus of 7 fps!
