SVCD Playback speed

vbimport

#1

I just went through and successfully completed DivX to SVCD, using Chickenman’s helpful tutorial (DVD2SVCD).

It burned okay, but when I placed it in my DVD player and in my computer CD drive, it started playing back at a fast speed.

Chicago was like watching the chipmunks doing the damn can-can on meth. :rolleyes:

Help?

Thanks!

I also found this when looking at the log from DVD2svcd…

[Internal Xml Generation]
Internally computed XML generated successfully: “C:\Documents and Settings\Owner\My Documents\videocd.xml”

[VCDxBuild.exe]

this is the UNSTABLE development branch!
use only if you know what you are doing

So the SVCD plays fine on your PC but gooes into fast forward in your DVD Player ? Is that correct ?

Have you played other SVCD’s in your DVD Player before ? if so do they play fine? Are you able to play your new SVCD in a friends DVD Player to see if it plays there okay?

THe SVCD plays fast on computer and DVD player.

This is a new thing for me… I first tried recording as VCD- the result was un-synched sound to video. The video ran choppy. The second time I recorded it at a slower burn rate, and got ZERO sound, but the picture ran smoother. On both of these I used a technique and software different from yours.

Then I switched to your tutorial, using SVCD. The player plays most if not all formats. Thats is when I hit this odd snag. I gave up at that point, and posted here. The player I am using is an APEX 1201, which from what I read on the boards, will work. I havent tried the disc on other machines, because none of my friends have ones that will play VCD/SVCD.

The problem is not your DVD Player as you say the SVCD play fast on the PC also. It should play correctly on the PC.

Can you give me some properties of the AVI please. Right click it go to Properties and then Summary. Also run GSPOT (search for it here) and report the Audio & Video Codec if finds.

I just saw a fast motion codec for DivX… is THIS what is causing the problem???

Sorry for making this an Uber huge post. :Z I just wanted to make sure I gave you all the info that was needed. :bow:


#7

Oh my God, you plain and simply have to many codec installed. There would be clashes everywhere I assume you have the Nimo or Anglepotion codec pak installed. First thing I would do is UN-INSTALL it !


#8

Yeah foolish me thinking that the more codecs, the better. These were installed before I even considered burning SVCDs.

Nimo is removed, and the others I will weed through.

What bare bones list of codecs do you recommend having?

Thanks again!


#9

All you need to playback 99% of all DivX, VCD, SVCD and DVD is:

Windows installed codec
DivX 5.x
Xvid (always the latest stable version)
AC3 Codec
And a good DVD player like WinDVD (or PowerDVD)

Thats all you need !

ffdshow is a great substitute to DivX 5.X (esp 5.1+) if you want to avoid DivX’s nasty wrapper but you’ll also need DivX 3.11 since ffdshow appears bail out on such streams.
Regarding XviD, the latest binary should be fine even if it’s considered alpha/beta quality.
Koepi’s latest stable is dated 2002-10-04 (it’s not even available on his site anymore) and doesn’t decode (any recent) or encode XviD streams that’s compatible with today’s builds.

Hi:

Your problem is that your video fram rate IS NOT correct. For example, if you want to creat a PAL SVCD, the frame rate must be 25 fps, and DVD2SVCD doesn´t change the frame rate, but assume its 25 fps. The trick is to change the aviscript generated.

In the line which appears

AssumeFPS(25)

change to

ChangeFPS(25)

I hope this helps
