Answer

When viewing the AVI file it skips in a very consistent rate. It looks like a frame per second is missing.

I made a TOTAL GUESS that the source was 25fps and it was just encoded at 23.976.

I have an AVI source that was encoded using a current Xvid codec. The file is 23.976 FPS and when played appears very clear but slightly jumpy on some scenes. It looks like it was probablly a PAL...

Why ImgTool?

Kwag,

I have been using DVDShrink for a week or two now. I open a DVD and then deselect the audio and subs I do not want. I set the shrinkage for the menus, extras and movie. Then I backup to a...

48x ALL THE WAY!

I have consistently burned my KVCDs at 48x on my "hacked" Liteon drive. It was originally a 40x and I upgraded it to 48x via a firmware update.

In many cases I am able to burn at 40x or 48x on...

DVD Shrink vs. KDVD (or KVCD)

How does DVD Shrink accomplish the "shrinking" of a movie?

If I have a DVD (i.e. Old School) and I use 25% to fit just the movie (no extras or menus)...

And I also created an equally sized KDVD...

DVD vs. VCD - MPEG1 vs. MPEG2 ?

Finally... Kwag has ReplayTV.

You can absolutely use the device as a recorder only! It is never going to be as simple to use as a VCR but there are ways to make it close.

Additional Explanation

My whole idea is to create a slef-referencing script where any "variable" that I might change depending on the source would be easily changed without having to copy the entire script. That is easy...

Why are the DivX encodes so flawed?

There is no question that DivX has this awsome following and in most places (ah.. hem!... Doom9 forums) there is constant talk about how it is the most superior format. :o

ReClock...

Reclock seems to work very well for me. Not only does it control peak playback but it also will help sync framerate for smoothest playback and best sync.

It makes a huge difference on bad DivX...

It really eliminates the resizing issues. I was having constant problems with trying to tweak resizing until I decided on another method.

Latest Script - syntax/format modifications

In the latest script does the section:

## Defined Variables and Constants ##
#
MaxTreshold = 1.50
nf = 0 # Current frame.
#
####

Have to come BEFORE the "MPEGSource" line?

Nero Vision?

Can Nero Vision burn a KVCD3 disc? I check it out a few days ago and it looks like you can only burn a standard VCD. It transcodes down to... crap.

I like VCDEasy. It seems to be more effective...

Rethinking 480?

Is it an MPEG1 or MPEG2 file?

If your source is MPEG2 then use DVD2AVI. (Even with MPEG1 is works fine for me).
