VSO not responding after a period of time

vbimport

#1

Okay I need to transfer a AVI to DVD format. The forum recommended ConvertX2DVD downloaded the program from VSO site to do a test, if I minimize the program it goes to “not responding”. Disabled my antivirus, deinstalled and reinstalled. But it seems if I run another program or if the program is going to burn the DVD it just goes to not responding and freezes, any help would be appreciated. Here is a crash log file.

If that is all that is in log, then conversion has not even started before crash.
There might be a problem with that movie.


#3

Thought of that also so I tried another movie, and it did the same thing. If I open another application, VSO will freeze and when I look at the task manager it goes to not responding. I even thought it maybe my machine so I tried it on another machine I have in my home and the same thing happened. I would really like this to work, to test conversion.


#4

Download original CxD from www.vso-software.fr, uninstall current version, delete VSO entries from registry, reboot, reinstall CxD.


#5

Okay tried that already, no luck. Even tried to install on another workstation. I am trying another product now cucusoft and that seems to work on the other workstation. CxD does not work on either workstations. Sorry.


#6

Hi there,

I’ve been ßeta testing ConvertXtoDVD since v0.5.2b and never had it FREEZE or LOCK UP my PC, so there’s gotta be something on your PC that’s conflicting with it.

Do you have other Encoder (Codecs) installed on your PC ?

I installed and use K-Like Mega Codec Pack but always install in “PLAY ONLY” mode, never install FFMPG or other encoders that can conflict.

My 2 cents…


#7

Mine works great, just got done with using it, no freeze ups at all.:confused:


#8

Hi cougar_ii: I have other encoders and never had a conflict, even with the HC encoder installed CCE encoder, this has got to be a configuration problem.


#9

Okay some good suggestions here. It really does not freeze my pc, the program just freezes. I will try and deinstall the codecs from my workstation and install the K-Lite Mega Codec Pack.


#10

Hi counterer:
Welcome to the forum. cougar_ii is excellent at support with all the VSO programs, if you work with him I am sure we can get this sorted.:iagree:


#11

Hi again,

More as an FYI :stuck_out_tongue:

One thing I have noticed in the past, some people with low end computers, the computer was so busy converting it had no CPU cycle to update the interface.

The software looked frozen, but if you use windows explorer and do a REFRESH of the output directory, you would actually see the output.vob files growing and growing, which tells me the conversion is still going, just the interface froze since the CPU is too busy.

2 suggestions when that happens:

Turn off the Video Preview.
Set the conversion priority to “Idle” this way it won’t take all the CPU cycle away from other applications, and from the main interface.

The ConvertXtoDVD and the conversion thread are 2 different tasks.

Setting the conversion priority to idle, doesn’t change the priority for the interface.


#12

Thanks cougar_ii, I took your advice, deinstalled all my codec packs, and deinstalled ConvertXtoDVD, got the K-Lite codec pack and reinstalled CXD, with the latest install. Turned off video preview and put priority to idle. CXD went through the entire convertion, which is great. I played it on my laptop and it looked fine and sounded fine, then I burned it to a DVD. When I put it on my dvd player it plays but no sound. I took a look at the logs they look fine but maybe I am missong something. Cougar_ii you were a lifesaver before, anymore suggestions why no sound when played on DVD player?

Is your DVD player capable of playing AC3?
You need correct hardware or correct settings on DVD player to direct AC3 to other sound hardware.


#14

Okay JJ I will check my dvd player. But wait I did a conversion with another product called cucusoft and the audio was heard, the only thing was with the application the picture was choppy and the audio did not synch. So I do not think it is the dvd player. But if it does not support ac3 do you have any suggestions what I can do?


#15

Hi,

Thanks for confirming that having other encoders like CCE will not conflict, I guess since it’s not using FFMPG also !

Maybe having 2 applications that uses FFMPG will conflict, no idea :doh:


#16

counterer: other products might do anything, like convert audio always to PCM etc.

But most DVD players are capable of playing AC3, you just need to check settings.
If you do not have external amplifier then settings must match - usually something like “surround sound off” or “5.1 to 2 channels” etc.


#17

Okay just checked my DVD player (Apex AD1600) and it does play ac3. Is there a setting in CXD that will change the ac3 to PCM? Any help would be great.

Also changed soem of the settings on my DVD player tried to take surround off with still no luck.

Wow, you have a lot of little things that should be fixed.

1- In the settings, write in [U]Session At Once[/U] —> [B][X] Prefer SAO for DVD-R[/B] instead of Packet Writting.

2- Enable your DMA --> http://www.portmac.com/modules.php?name=Check_Enable_DMA

3- Those media are real low quality: [U]UME01[/U]

Those are 4th class media, in english, it means they are Elto Crapo :iagree:

Taiyo Yuden, Verbatim are 1st class media !

4- You have real old firmware on your burner: v1.04

Latest one is [B]v3.07[/B]

http://support.necam.com/optical/downloads/flashfirmware/fw/NECND352_v307.exe

5- Make some Popcorn, and enjoy the movie :smiley:


#19

Cougar_ii I have been meaning to update my burner, and I will do as per you suggestion re: DMA. But what does that have to do wiht getting sound on the movie?


#20

Hi,

Probably absolutly nothing.

I just gave my 2 cents on what I have seen/found in your logs :wink:
