I'm having trouble converting AVI to VCD MPG.

I'm using TMPGEnc and it's only converting the sound properly for about 10 seconds, then all I get is video and no sound. I d\l'd the Panasonic MPG encoder, and it would create a MPG file then immediately close. Anyone with some experience in this have any idea what's going on?

download and try a program called virtualdub.

load the avi into virtualdub and split the audio out into an mp3 first.

then load the video for the video in tmpgenc and the mp3 you just made from the avi as the audio portion.

that should work for you. let me know how it goes.

Weird, I did exactly that, except I extracted the audio as a wav . Thanks, though!

TMPGEnc is really bad with converting sound file when it's a little too big. What I did was converting the extracted WAV file into mp2 and then used that mp2 file as audio when converting into mp1 or mp2. Hope this help.

Sometimes TMPEGnc doesn't convert the sound part right and your better off using something like Sound Forge to convert your sound file to the proper specs first.

What I meant in my second post is that I ripped the wav, and used that and the video source to correctly make the mpg, so problem solved. Thanks again for the responses, though .
