No matter what I try I can’t fix this. I’m trying to burn an XviD encoded AVI (TV episode, 45mins long) onto a VCD or SVCD. The video and audio always go out of sync after 30 minutes.
I’ve heard it’s a VBR problem, but none of the threads have explain how to change the audio to CBR. I have smart encoding turned all also, all that did was make the quality worse after burning. So I’m thinking of using different software all together to get this sorted. Any ideas?
I don’t make VCDs but I had this same problem briefly with DVDs. I sorted it out by having NERO transcode the audio to DD2.0 or 5.1. To me, it seems that if NERO is forced to transcode both audio and video, then the synch issue goes away.
Well I just used VCDEasy and it asked me to convert to MPEG2, so I used WinAVI Video Converter to convert the AVI to MPEG2 then burnt it with VCDEasy and it worked perfectly. No sync problems at all.
I could probably use Nero now that I know to convert the videos to MPEG2, but I don’t want to waste any more discs trying it >_<
I think I’ll stick with WinAVI + VCDEasy for burning.
Oh, while we’re at it, when I played the new VCD it was in widescreen format; with black bars at the top and bottom. Is that because of the settings I used? Do you know how I could make it 4:3? I chose those options in WinAVI but it didn’t seem to do it.
