I did, thats not helping me. What I have are SVCD's mpeg-2 but when I put them in TMPGEnc it says mpeg-1 (and yes i have the codec!). So ANYWAYS. I tried just converting them to SVCD NTSC anyways as im under the impression they are MPEG-2 PAL. When i converted a small sample it was fine, because then I used the header trick to make my dvd player think they are MPEG-1. Then i burnt and they played fine which was what I was aiming for anyways. Now the problem is the screen was cropped on the sides obviously cos the conversion changed the size aspect ove tried a lot of things. Anyways what I need to know is how do i check for certain that its a SVCD(MPEG-2) or VCD(mpeg-1) also how do i check for certain that its PAL or NTSC. And If possible how do i check if its 4:3, 16:9??
Also is the way im converting this ok? I mean he has a seperate guide on converting SVCD to VCD and im not even bothering as his regular method for x - > VCD works fine for me making SVCD's. I dont know Im new to all this and finding it kinda headachy im sure ill get the hang of it eventually.
