Hi Guys

I've been trying to convert a high qiality Divx of the 13-Ghosts film to VCD format.

I successfully made a single 80min VCD but then realised that the original Divx file had a problem whereby 58mins into the film the audio shifted by nearly a second.

Using TMPEnc I split the file into 2, and adjusted the audio by -750ms in the second part.
I then used TMPEnc to join the 2 files together and the movie now plays fine on my PC.

The file size of the file is 778MB and I'm using VCDEasy to burn a VCD in the normal way to an 80Min CD.

The problem is that although the original TMPEnc'ed file is only 778MB, VCD Easy reports that the VCD file will be >900mb and so won't fit onto a single CD.

Any ideas why this has happened as when I originally burnt the uncut/joined image to CD it fitted fine (But had the audio shift in the second part of the film). It's only since I cut & joined the file that VCD is reporting the increase in file size.

Any help greatly appreciated

The problem may have occured when you mux the two parts back together in Tpmepg. I think you have to make sure you mux it as a non standard VCD. If you have muxed it as a standard VCD then when it comes to burning the film, whatever burning util you are using looks at the duration of the movie ie: your 900 meg would be 90 mins, as a non standard VCD system it checks the file size not the duration.
Hope this helps out.

You could also trying burning with Nero..

IF your file is a 778 MB Mpeg Non Standard then you can open up Nero and go in the advanced settings by closing the Wizard that pops up.

From the side choose Video CD and uncheck the following options :-

Create Standard CD
CD-i Compilation.

then hit NEW

Add your file and burn...Hope this helps !
