Hi folks, this is my first posting here so you can all shout newbie if its a silly question…
Last night I decided to try VirtualDub as a VCR (after reading an article on the site) so I set it up to capture using the DivX codec and MP3 audio compression.
It wouldnt do it… Couldnt open waveinput or something similar appeared. So in the end I just saved the audio raw as PCM and then opened the file back up inside VD and tried to compress the audio stream. Choosing the MP3 codec I couldnt find a 128kbps option, 64kbps was the highest listed. When I tried using any of the DivX audio compression codecs when Saving AVI in VD the progress bar would sit at 4096 bytes processed and hang (closing the dialog box brought about a VD error saying the resultant file probably wouldnt be usable).
Am I missing something simple (perhaps an updated MP3 codec?)
I know you guys are on the ball with this software so maybe could lend a hand …
PS: My main reason for trying this is because I want to capture the final Voyager episode into divx direct from my Digital set top box
