Anyone come across this? Burned to vcd and checked with WinDVD. The movie plays fine throughout. Put the same vcd in stand alone and it starts playing fine for 30 min or so, then it starts to gradually degrade with macro blocks showing up. Like you hit some scratch marks on the cd. The more you go through the movie the worse it gets until it's not watchable. I had to put this movie on 2 cd because of length. The second cd starts playing fine (no blocks) and then gradually does what the first one does. What's causing this?

@kwag, could you post the link to matrix.ini and the kvcd.ini you wrote for D2S? I can't find it.

thanks,
-Yoda

Yes I've seen this a lot. In my case about half way through the movie there are multi-colored macroblocks and objects repeat and trace. Also the play indicator is normally blue but when this starts to happen it turns green.

I think this is cause by either burning too fast or bad media. I only burn at 4 or 8x now and don't see this problem anymore.

rendalunit,
could be the burn speed although i've burned at 8x before without a problem. could be the media i guess. i'll have to try a different disk. the thing is the vcd plays fine with windvd but on the panasonic rv 26(i think that's the model) it degrades after time. did yours play good at first then after a while get worse?

I`ll run a test svcd clip through WinDvD, Wimp, PowerDvD, and
then on my "stand-alone" Apex-1100w, and get a diff view, with
diff quirks on all four!
Frustrating sometimes, as far as testing goes.
Don`t know why...but sometimes I`ll lose audio sync in PowerDvD,
and Wimp...but not on the other two...strange.

I just bought a 30cd spindle "Verbatim" and they're worthless They play fine on my computer but in my sony nc600 player they quit halfway through- although they play fine at first. I never have any problems with Memorex except when I burn at the fastest speed 32x so I'm switching back to this brand media.

I recently picked up a 50pack of CompUSA branded media, and
they are suprisingly good. They have been the most stable discs
I've found and no problems burning at hight speed either.
Admittedly I've only got a 24x but flawless burns everytime.

I've had one experience with the video gradually falling apart - I had burned the video on a generic brand of CDR at 24x. Used the same file (used the bin/cue still on the computer) and burned on an Imation CDR at the same speed, and the video worked perfectly.

Cheers, --Tony K.

Actually it was a 50pack and there's 40 left. I'd like to build a coaster launcher and send them all over the neighborhood
