    How to convert DIVX/XVID to DVD with gui4ffmpeg



    1. Load the DIVX/XVID file with Open file.

    2. Select DVD in the Target list box.

    3. Choose PAL or NTSC in the Format field.

    4. Under Aspect you should use the aspect ratio of the source.

    5. Change Bitrate optionally.

    6. Choose mp2 or ac3 (ac3: change audio Bitrate and Channels optionally).

    8. Select the output file with Save file.

    9. Press the Generate button, the ffmpeg command will be displayed.

    10. Press the Encode button. Ffmpeg's DOS box occurs and the file will

    be encoded. Close the DOS box, if the process is finished.

    The DVD compliant MPEG file is created.

    Authoring and burning may be done with gui for dvdauthor, TMPGEnc Author ...

    Is the video encoded CBR, or does the value for the video bitrate represent the average in a 2-Pass VBR ? If so, what are the max and min values used ?
    If in doubt, Google it.

    It's cbr. The handling of the quality is done with the qmin parameter in the "Enter more options ..." field. For more information you may read the detailed documentation of gui4ffmpeg.

    You're right, the MPEG format is DVD.
    The authoring and burning may be done with gui for dvdauthor.

  10. thanks i've got it to play but now for some reason the audio is out of sync, can one of gui4ffmpeg's settings prevent this or do i need to get another program to fix it.

    Thanks for any help.

    This will be done in ffmpeg with the option -async 1. Gui4ffmpeg sets this option automatically.
    If the sync difference is constant, you have a good chance to fix this.
    You may use avidemux to separate (demux) audio and video stream from the mpeg file.
    With an audio editor you have to stretch or cut the audio.
    Afterwards you have to join (mux) the video and the corrected audio stream with avidemux.

    Another way is to encode the divx file to dvd by using the mp2 as audio target (assuming that ac3 was used).

    Good luck.

    One problem i found with ffmpeggui is when you encode 44.1 khz audio to 48khz a3 sometimes it screws up the audio length and sync.

    Gui4ffmpeg and ffmpeggui are using ffmpeg to encoding. May be, there is such problem.
    Anyway, if there is a sync problem in the encoded file, i would do this procedure:

    Open the divx source with virtual dub and save the audio as wav file.
    Open the mpeg file encoded with gui4ffmpeg in avidemux.
    Use as audio source the external wav and configure the audio filter to convert from 44,1 to 48 kHz.
    Save as mpeg.

    WinAVI will produce either a DVD compliant Mpeg or else a set of VOB files.

  16. Hi. I'm new to using both gui4ffmpeg and AviSynth. So far I'm having good luck using gui4ffmpeg as described in this guide. However, when I try to process any video file through AviSynth I get this error message
    "Change the source file name in TV.avs, line: XXXsource(...)"

    I've tried using AviSource and DirectShowSource on various avi files that play in Windows Media Player so I'm stumpted. I can't even get started with AviSynth so I must be doing something strange. I changed all the paths in TV.avs that have "Programme" to "Program Files" but no joy.
    I must be missing something really basic?

  17. I modified TV.avs and changed the name and it will work as video
    input to TMPGEnc Plus. But I still can't figure out how to get TV.avs
    to work with gui4ffmpeg. It gives the same error msg still. I'm
    confused.

    Is there any step by step example of using gui4ffmpeg with avisynth?
    I like using gui4ffmpeg. When I see how avisynth filters can clean
    up a video with bad comb effects during lateral motion it makes me
    want to incorporate it into gui4ffmpeg usage though. I have the feeling
    I'm missing something really simple or something is broken but I'm not
    sure which is the case.

  18. Good old trial & error should not be abandoned I guess.
    I'm not sure what line was causing the script to crap out but
    I just copied the script that worked with TMPGEnc to the
    Gui4ffmpeg install folder and renamed it TV.avs. It's running
    now. Wish me luck.

    Of course you can work with other scripts then Tv.avs.
    Important is, that the name of the file which you load
    into gui4ffmpeg is IDENTICAL with the name of the source
    file configured in the Tv.avs script.
    For more information see chapter "advanced options->increase
    quality with AviSynth" in the help file.

    That was never the problem. No matter what I did the error message remained the same.

    So I made a one-liner script to be certain the mechanism worked. Once I knew it would take a script then it was fixed in
    no time. The error message just confused me for a while.

    Doing something for the first time always seems to be weird like that.

    My video file processed in real time using your program as opposed to
    nearly twice as long with TMPGEnc. So I'm glad to have it.

    Cannot get this to use an avisynth script. The script does run in other programs (quenc etc) but not in gui4ffmpeg. can you help?

    thanks

    There are many ways to measure success. You just have to find your own yardstick.

    Just a question, how when the cmd.exe box pops up and it displays things like frame, size, time, and bitrate, is there a way to figure out how much longer the conversion will take?

    Did you calculate the bitrate before encoding it? The larger the bitrate the larger the mpeg video will come out to be, there are bitrate calculators out there you can use, but if you don't want to re-encode it you can always author a dvd then use dvdshrink to make it fit. You're trying to burn a dvd right? 3 GB should fit on a dvd, so I'm not sure why Nero is saying it's too big to burn.
