Hello all.

I just found about this site from a friend and I must say that it's amazing

I have been authoring VCDs for a while using either SmartRipper or clad DVD XP for ripping DVDs and then using TMpegEnc to make a VCD mpeg. The resulting file is about 1GB and of course I'd have to split the file and put it on to 2 CD-Rs.

I've been comparing some of the sample KVCD movies with my VCD mpegs and the video quality of the KVDs are truly amazing.

I currently have about 7 movies on my HD which are VCD mpegs. Is there anyway I can convert those to KVCDs so I can fit it on to 1 CD-R? I just want better video quality and the compactness of having only 1 CD-R to "transport".

Thanks

Hi TCC and welcome .
You can convert those mpeg files to a single KVCD CD-R. But don't expect better quality, because they will be recompressed. The best you'll get is about the same quality as the are. If you can encode those again from original DVD, then the quality will be better.

I would use some filtering, and process with a avisynth script.
You could just try opening directly your mpeg file with TMPEG, and then load KVCD LBR template. But the best way is to run DVD2AVI and create a project file, and then use a script something like this:

Code:
LoadPlugin("C:\encoding\mpeg2dec.dll")
LoadPlugin("C:\encoding\GripFit_preview.dll") 
LoadPlugin("C:\encoding\blockbuster.dll") 
LoadPlugin("C:\encoding\legalclip.dll") 
LoadPlugin("C:\encoding\sampler.dll") 
LoadPlugin("C:\encoding\dustv5.dll") 
LoadPlugin("C:\encoding\temporalcleanerold.dll")

Mpeg2Source("YourFile.d2v")
LegalClip() 
GripCrop( width=352, height=240, overscan=1 ) 
GripSize() 
SpaceDust()
TemporalCleaner()
Blockbuster(method="noise", detail_min=1, detail_max=10, variance=1, seed=1)
GripBorders() 
LegalClip() 
#Sampler(length=24)
Check the file prediction topic on the forum and the download links on the main page at www.kvcd.net for links to all filters.

I thought that DVD2AVI was only for MPEG2 files.

Does it also work with VCD MPEG1 files?

Sorry, I'm tired today
Yes, DVD2AVI only works with MPEG-2 files.
