Hi, I have been using DVD2SVCD ever since I started encoding movies and have found it excellent once I get it working.
However, every time I re-install (due to formats, etc) I have a problem getting it to convert movies without losing audio sync, this was usually those with VBR Audio, but not in this case.
I always follow Chickenman’s DivX->SVCD tutorial when configuring DVD2SVCD and sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn’t… ?
The first few movies I’ve done recently have been really choppy and I couldn’t track far into the file… the audio from that part would play but the video would take an unfeasible amount of time to ‘catch up’ to where I was tracking to. I figured this was due to a codec conflict so I uninstalled all of them and then just put DivX (and XviD) back on.
The next video I encoded wasn’t choppy and came out at good quality (good old CCE), but there are numerous parts where the audio goes progressively out of sync, then back to sync again. I did multipass VBR at 3 times and the file did not have VBR audio, (I know how to fix them by extracting audio and then re-encoding with CBR encoder now). Any ideas? (I’ve gotten this a lot in the past but then something just clicks after a fiddle and DVD2SVCD churns out SVCD after SVCD with 99% success)
Also, I noticed in the latest version of DVD2SVCD it is bundled with D2SRoBa or something with lots of new foreign features that scared me off…
What would be ideal is if you could load in comprehensive config files (like TMPGENc) that set DVD2SVCD up to say Chickenman’s guide’s spec.
Are there any new guides for this version of DVD2SVCD and is D2SRoBa recommmended? (I think the 1 time I encoded with it, it only output 1 800mb file and it had the problems described above)
