Question Junkie or other exp ripper...

sponsored links

 
I encoded my latest try at 480w x 352h...

I used the CQ_VBR setting and the output looks great on my computer...

however it looks like junk on my DVD player... The video is scrambled in blocks and doesnt fit together right....

Is this

A) resolution ?
B) CQ_VBR setting?
C) System setting of MPEG1-NonStandard?
D) My DVD player wont read non standard discs?

VCDhelp indicates that my DVD player should read XVCDs and things like that... So I am wondering if it is not one of the other reasons?

if your system stream setting was "MPEG1 VideoCD (nonstandard)" when you encoded the mpeg1 but the video is scrambled on your standalone, then i'd have to guess your standalone doesn't support that rez for mpeg1 decoding. that's too bad cuz i think you would have been really pleased with it. looks like you'll have to stick with the standard rez for your VCDs when using your standalone. i've got four standalones in the house and only one, the JVC, will play any rez VCD i come up with. three of them, though, do support higher bitrate and variable bitrate VCDs at the standard rez. the fourth just won't read CD-R/RW media.

one more thing, i noticed that most reviews on DVD players at vcdhelp cover only higher bitrate and variable bitrate VCDs. not many go to the trouble of testing different rez VCDs like i did.

wait a sec, i just realized u encoded to a 480x352 mpeg. not what i suggested. we wanna get 480 horizontal lines for the vertical rez. try one more encode to a 352x480 mpeg, CQ_VBR, MPEG1 VideoCD (nonstandard), source video arrange="full (keep aspect ratio)", output aspect ratio=whatever your output monitor/TV is. i know it looks very tall as a pure mpeg, but if the video arrange method and aspect ratios are set correctly, it will be resized to its correct dimensions on playback.

Thanks for coming back to me...

I was testing while I waited for your response...

So if I skew the video in the mpeg, but use the full keep aspect ratio I get a better resolution? That sounds soo weird but I will try...

Here is what I tested while waiting...

Mine will read 740x480, 704x480 - altho it skipps a bit...
It did NOT like 480x352 at all...
I am currently trying 480x320... I will do another one as you have described...

Thx again...
