Divx to vcd converter

I am looking for a software that can convert the divx and xvid files to vcd format. thanks

follow 3 steps below

Step 1: Splitting the movie
First of all, you must know that when burning the CD, you will not be able to fit more than 70 minutes of the movie (just like when burning music). However, the difference here is that the higher the quality, the less you are able to fit. If you convert at 100% quality, you will not be able to fit more than 60minutes of the movie on a single CD (I do not know the exact time restraints, however this is fairly close).

When splitting the movie, DO NOT use Avi Chopper. This can create corrupted split files (you will not be able to join them back again). So, you use VirtualDub. This is done by selecting the first half of the movie, and deleting it. You save that half. Then select the second half of the movie, and save that remaining half. It’s fairly simple and gives the best results (also allows you to cut at the beginning of a scene instead of in the middle of the scene).

Step 2: Uncompressing the audio
You must uncompress the audio of a DivX in order for the mpeg-1 to be burnable as a VCD.

To do this, use VirtualDub. Put the Video on “Direct Streaming” and the audio on “Full processing mode.” In the audio section, go to “compression” and select the empty space " ".

Then save the Avi as is. This should not take very long, however will produce a much larger file (normally around 75% to 100% larger).

Step 3: Converting Avi to Mpeg-1
This is usually a very long process (depending on your cpu, RAM and the amount of changes you make, it can take anywhere between 6 and 40 hours). It also create a fairly large file (100-500mb larger than the uncompressed avi). The program to use in this is called “TMPGEnc.” (The Mpg Encoder) FYI, this program is supposedly optimized for AMD processors.

The first step is to select the audio and video sources (both the same file) and then to select the output file (the file which will be created after conversion). Select the “configure” button to set up the aspects and quality.

Video tab:
Stream type: Mpeg-1
Size: 352x240 (must be this size!!)
Aspect Ratio: 4:3 525line (this can vary depending on the rip and the dvd player- but 4:3 usually works best)
Frame Rate: 29.97fps
Rate Control Mode: Constant Image Quality. Then go to the settings and change the quality to 100 and the maximum bitrate to 100 000.
Motion Search Accuracy: Highest Quality (very slow)

Advanced tab:
Source aspect ratio: This can be changed depending on the rip that you have. Try to find out the aspect of your rip. Otherwise pick one at random as this does not seem to make THAT much of a difference usually.
Image Positioning Method: Fit to Frame (preserve aspect ratio)
In the area below, select the following boxes- Ghost Reduction, Noise Reduction, Edge Enhancement, Basic Colour Correction, Crop Video, Audio Effects

Audio tab:
Stream type: Mpeg-1 Audio Layer II
Sampling Frequency: 44100 (must be this!!!)
Channel mode: Stereo

System tab:
Stream type: Mpeg-1 Video CD

hmm isnt there a software that can do all these things for me :slight_smile:

Why is it that hard to use Google?

It doesn’t even require a minute to find out…

Nerovision Express can do this. You can also use it to convert divx to DVD.

One word of warning though, when Nero converts one form of movie to another it can take a long time to do the conversion - sometimes up to 3 hours for a 2 hour movie.

Also some divx movies have extremely low resolutions - which is fine for playback on a PC or mobile device, but crap on a TV.

Nero does offer a demo version, so you could try it out for free.

When the Nero SmartStart menu loads, select the video tab and choose Make Video CD or Make Super Video CD.

Wait for the software to load, it can take a minute or so, then a new menu set should appear.

Add the video file - in your case your divx file - then select next.

If you want to add menus you can, or if you want it to play like a VHS video, just choose don’t create menus. Hit next to see a preview of the movie, then next to go to the burning options page.

Then burn.

I would prefer VirtualDub + TMPGEnc.

Nero products are buggy, always.

Ofcourse you could just buy a dvd player that plays divx movies, but if you are set on converting I’d go with Nero for it’s ease of use.

The FilmMachine is made specifically for converting AVI’s to VCD, SVCD or DVD. Uses a quality encoder, CCE and is a Few-clicks GUI solution. Worth a look.

or you can use AVS converter,it is easy to use :slight_smile:
