I've seen a few posts about this being done. Anyone know of a faq that 's around to learn more? I've tested some with womble mpeg editor, and had near success. It would create a sererate AVI file for sound and video. not sure how then to join them, then still have the dvix issue?? if you even can. I would have assumed there was a more simple way to get the mpeg2 to avi. Maybe there is and I'm having a thick in the head moment.


As i type I attempting a try with tmpgenc but i'm not too confident of those results. It will be a few hours till it's done. and i'll have to hit the sack by then. My goal is to take a 900 mb file and shrink it down to cd size.


I figured dvix would work but I'm having some trouble getting to that point..


any nudges in the right direction is appreciated.

Hmm... good question, best I can do is this:


1) Load the MPG into DVD2AVI then save the project, you'll get a d2v file and an MPA file


2) Convert the MPA file to wav format (I use winamp)


3) use Vfapi to convert the .d2v file into .avi


4) Load the resultant avi file into VirtualDub


5) Load the wav file into virtual dub


6) Set the audio offset to the # specified in the MPA file's name


7) Chop it up and save it, you're done.


There are probably better ways, but this one is free, and relatively easy.


Thanks, Rob

Check out FlaskMPEG at

http://www.flaskmpeg.net/


It will ferret out the codecs you have installed and use whatever you want. A very nice, free, complete package. I have had good luck using it with the DivX codecs to encode mpegs off of the RTVs.

Download the free divx 5.02 bundle and encode the files with Vidomi469.


Use the divx networks 2-pass option.


The only setting I change in the divx options is the quantizer max from 12 to 4.


I change three settings in the Vidomi options.


General options: The file extension from divx to avi.


Output size options: Set the target size as an absolute size and the media size (maximum avi file size) to 1100mb (anything above 700mb would probably work).


On any file two gigs or above, I set the file size at 690mb to allow for overflow and create one cd-size flle.


I have converted replay mpegs using file sizes as low as 1/5 size. The optimum size for me has been between 1/4 and 1/3. I do know a 3.5 gig file still comes out great at 690 megs. I think you can get away with 1/5 compression on large files better than small ones.


You can play these divx files back in media player, zoom player and even power dvd. I don't even install the player included with the vidomi codec. It has trouble playing back the files that vidomi creates. Zoom player plays all my files and is the most configurable player I have seen.

Vidomi 469 gives a lot of people problems on multi (batch) or two-pass encodes. Vidomi forums has a lot of info on it (underwater/alien sound). Changing the lame codec works for some.


Using the previous version of vidomi has no issues.

Just a head's up -- I have tried using DVD2AVI to get the files to work in TMPGENC for transfer to DVD. This worked great, except all files I created this way had an audio sync problem that Toadatrix described in detail a few weeks ago. The thread is here:

I don't know if it affects divx encoding or not. But if so, toadatrix's solution worked great for me.


Good luck!
