AS Video Arcade mention, there are some systems that are not stable when overclocked. I never had this problems because I know how to properly overclock my system

If u are having crashes with TMPg on 866 and not on 566 then i guess it is due to overclocking. But give DVD2SVCD a try first, you are the only who will actually see if it will crash or not.

Just used DVD2SVCD for the first time yesterday, using CCE in VBR *4. It was very straightforward, I ripped "Star Wars TPM" on my 1.2 Athlon with 512mb. It exported 3 discs in around 14 hours (great Quality). A big thanks to the people on this forum in helping to find CCE.

I rest my case on SVCD

Your honour 14 hours to produce

168 hours in the week

12 Films per week if your at the machine all the time.

Nice to see a Star Wars fan anyway

Video Arcade,

I know you seem to dislike SVCD..LOL

But the speed actually depends on your machine.

I know a friend of mine has AthlonXP 2000 overclcoked to 2001 and it only takes him about 3-4 hours for one DVD to SVCD using multipass VBR

It`s not that I dont dislike SVCD but I hate LOTR SVCD because everyone has gone, wooah excellent quality I want more SVCDs and it was just low quality.

VCD is crap when you use the TMPEG settings which is what I was doing of Novemember of last year. It produces low quality VCD where in blackness you see different shades of black and sometimes grey, in chase or fast moving scenes then you will get extra blocks that you can see even when your about 20 feet from the TV.

If I done SVCD straight from TMPEG then it would be better than doing a VCD straight from TMPEG, the settings are higher, the resolution is higher, the bitrate is higher.

I can be 5 inches from my 34" and cannot see different shades of black or any fuzzy outlines during chase sequences.

So my agurement is that people will only use the template they have with TMPEG and produce low quality VCDs. Then they will just use an all in one program or again the templates that are in TMPEG for SVCD and let everything produce for them.

The only thing I have seen in the UK so far are multiple screeners on DVD nothing like high quality SVCD or VCD rips.

My way of looking at it is if it`s easy, why are people not doing it?

I am a little confused with the DVD2SVCD Bitrate do I know hwo many discs I will end up with. I don't understand how on the first(assuming everything is set to default) its says:

between 0 and 50 min. Use 1
between 50 and 76 mins Use 1

is it going to create two discs with the first contain 50 minutes and the second containg only containg 26 mins?

The next part
between 76 and 100 mins use 2
between 100 and 125 mins use 2

Or does this say that if the DVD is 90 mins. it will create 2 cds
