Audio Skip problems

Need help I’m new at burning DVD’s. Here’s the problem, I download some Tv episodes in divx form, then converted them to DVD using DIKO, then used DVD Shrink to merge them and finely used Nero to burn them to a DVD. When I played the DVD on a set top player the audio will skip every so often. I played the divx files on my computer and no audio problems, then I played a file after DIKO and no audio problems, then after dvd shrink and again no audio problems, then I took the DVD and played it on my computer and no audio problems. So either Nero is the problem or I don’t know, has anyone had these problem before. Any advice is appreciated. Thanks

If everything’s fine and dandy on your computer before burning, it could definitely be a media problem.

Pop in one of your DVD’s and tell us what the app from http://dvd.identifier.cdfreaks.com says you’ve got for media.

Hope thats what you needed

Hmm, that’s some great media you’ve got there, that probably isn’t the problem.

I’m not sure. Maybe the DVD player doesn’t do 100% great on MP2 audio? Most converters use it, but it’s not technically in spec… But other than that I don’t have any great ideas.

Anyone else?

Which audio settings were used?

The audio encoder was BeSweet (MP2) the bitrate for 2.0 audio is 160 and 384 for 5.1. Aslo says audio extraction Tool is AVI2WAV can also use VirtualDubMod.

Mh, that leaves the issue to the standalone, maybe.

Just an update I converted the file again using Avi2DVD and they work fine now thanks everyone that helped.
