Default Svcd Film On Vcd Disk

sponsored links

 
Hi,
Just a quick question really, I have tried (successfully I might add) to perform the task on tmpgenc whereby you can multiplex an svcd film to become a vcd-esque film which will then allow a vcd to be made using nero (for example) to be able to play the film on a non svcd compatible dvd player. This was done using the advice on here and vcdhelp.com, BUT some films when I try to multiplex the svcd file into a vcd file (I know how to re-encode down to vcd, but want to use this much quicker way of doing it!) fail on tmpgenc with buffer underflow.
This happens on all different svcd films and not on others, can anyone shed any light, or is it that the svcd i am trying to convert has flaws on?
cheers,
DEANO72

Try deplexing and multiplexing the SVCD back the MPEG2 (SVCD) before doing the VCD header trick. Sometimes MPEG2 files need to be 're-plexed' to make them SVCD complient again. No I don't know why but it's worth a try.

have tried the above darkman, but the demux finishes at the same point that the error occurs (bufer underflow, lost frames,etc...) when trying the header trick.
BTW using tmpgenc plus to mux/demux mate.
Any other ideas?
cheers!

My guess is there is an error in the MPEG that is causing TMPGEnc to throw a wobbly.
I haven't tried either of these methods but at a guess they may fix the problem.

1) re-encode the MPEG2 file - hopefully this will fix/patch the error.

2) If the encoding fails at the same point as the demuc/remux then try encoding to a point just before it failed previously & run a second encoding session from just after the failure point to the end of the movie.

***********.vcdhelp.com/sefy/?id=ClassicalGuide.html#TMPGEnc
shows how to select a portion of the original file for encoding.
