Alright KWAG, I really appreciate all your help with this, but I tried everything there is, and it just doesn't work right.

I increased the Min. Bitrate from 300 up to 950, in CQ and MVBR, but the movie still jumps. I mean it got better the more i increased the Min. bitrate, but it still jumped every 10 seconds or so.

Ok now my questions:

What do you think makes my player not play KVCDs? It works fine with a constant Bitrate.

Could It be that my player just can't handle Variable Bitrates?

And If I use a constant Bitrate of let's say 1150 kb, would the filesize still be smaller than a movie encoded with the standard VCD Template?

Is there a difference between using CQ and an Equal Min/Max Bitrate and CB (Constant Bitrate) ?

I read somewhere that I should try to change the GOP structure, but that to me makes no sense, when the player plays the KVCDs with a Constant Bitrate.

Please Help If Anyone Can, I'm kinda dejected right now...

Hi Jellygoose:

I'm sorry to hear that
Maybe it's the VBR. Some players don't like MPEG-1 VBR.
There's one more thing you can try. That's re-muxing as SVCD with BBMPEG. If you haven't tried that already.
Links here http://www.kvcd.net/forum/viewtopic.php?t=38&start=0

What about if you use the template, but change the output to 352x240(28. Will it play correctly at that resolution?

Hi kwag...

yes, i only use 576x288 (PAL), but it's not the resolution that does it... must be the VBR then I guess... I tried the SVCD Remuxing but my player does not support SVCDs...

Well what do you think? Is it still worth for me using your template? I mean is the file size still smaller when i use KVCD with CBR then the standard VCD template?

Or should I just get a new player? What player do you recommend for KVCDs ? I mean you're the man, you know what you're talking about!

Thanks again!

Jellygoose,

If you're going to get a new player, I can recommend the Sony NS-300 or the Panasonic RP-56. The panasonic has progressive output. That's the one I use on my HDTV with Component cables.

Try to ecnode with MPG2 instead of MPG1.
My pioneer DV-525 don't like VBR-MPG1. The sound gets choppy.
But with MPEG2 it play smoothly.
