    Hi people, have been looking around for soft encode for the svcd2dvd program.
    Am a full registered owner of svcd2dvd but can't find the soft encode software anywhere to download, anyone give suggestions of where to get it and which version i need to work in svcd2dvd.

    Thanks,

    Hi ChrissyBoy,

    Now that SVD2DVD no longer supports BeSweet and SoftEncode is no longer available - are there plans to add support for another [cheap] AC-3 encoder in the near future?

    Thanks.

    I have revisited ffmpeg 0.4.8 tonight. The AC-3 "bug" it once had has been fixed. I shall keep you posted.

    Well initial results are very encouraging:

    800MB mpeg, demuxed, resample audio component to a 48KHz WAV file. This is used for the source for both encoders....

    SoftEncode: 448Kbs AC-3 2.0 encode: 37 minutes
    FFMpeg 0.4.8: 448Kbs AC-3 2.0 encode: 2 minutes 45 seconds!!!!

    The AC-3 stream IS DVD compliant:

    Code:
    File size:            202,288,128 bytes
    AC-3 File type:       Non-Intel byte order (0x0b)
    Total frames:         112,883
    Frame size:           1,792 bytes
    Sample rate:          48,000 Hz
    Data rate:            448 kbps
    Audio coding mode:    2/0 (L, R)
    Bit stream mode:      Main audio service: Complete main
    Dialog normalization: -31 dB
    Center mix:           None
    Surround mix:         None
    Copyright:            Off
    Original:             On
    Start time:           00:00:0.00 *
    End time:             01:00:12.26
    Status:               No errors were found
    The only difference i could tell is "Dialog normalization: -31 dB" is a bit more than with SoftEncode & so resulted in slightly quieter audio....

    These are my initial findings. If there are any AC-3 users who want to do some tests - email me.

    Mmm, well in the history a AC-3 related bug was fixed - so I'm not sure. I shall do some more investigations.

    Bad news. After looking at the ffmpeg devel mailing list I see that fix should be present & working.....

    http://sourceforge.net/mailarchive/message.php?msg_id=5769934
    http://sourceforge.net/mailarchive/message.php?msg_id=5850268

    I shall try the latest CVS (several updates since my last compile) and produce a NTSC/AC3 sample DVD (VIDEO_TS). We can then ask vcddude et al to test.

    Do that. It would be great if it would work...a free ac3 encoder would be very goooooood.

    of course it would also be illegal .. as dolby has stated ...

    the best program for checking ac3 streams is m-probe ...

    BJ_M: you posted a link to m-probe elsewhere (http://www.ktechtelecom.com/MProbe200.htm) but it is no longer availiable.....

    So ffmpeg & besweet are illegal?

    what it does http://www.acterna.ru/library/appnotes/mpeg/mpeg_dolby_elementary_stream_analysis.shtml

    where to get it it (and more info) http://www.ktechtelecom.com/MProbe2002.htm


    but looks like its no longer sold -- though its used by just about every major compressionist .. nothing else comes close .. wonder if anyone now owns the rights to it ... hmmmm .. it was very expensive ..

    so thinks dolby anyway ... i'm not a lawyer .. but i was told this by dolby and they are non to happy about it (they don't get the lic fee's) -- which are I think about 75$ of the cost of a 5:1 software encoder (i may be off) ..

    MProbe looks good. As does DProbe by the same people.

    I have provided a DVD sampler for all to test who are interested. People who have the following DVD players in particular:

    Pioneer DV-525
    Pioneer DV-343
    Pioneer DV-37
    Pioneer DV-525
    Pioneer DVL-909

    It is the train vob trailer from http://www.cinenow.com. demuxed, AC3->WAV using HeadAC3he. WAV->AC3 using ffmpeg (ffmpeg-cvs-2003-10-08). DVD authored using Meastro:

    Code:
    Video:
        Stream:
            Type: Interlaced MPEG2
            Bitrate: 9.800 Mbps
            Framerate: 29.970 Hz
            Resolution: 720x480
            Aspect ratio: 4x3
    Audio:
       Stream:
            Type: Dolby Digital (AC3)
            Bitrate: 448 Kbps
            Number of main channels: 2
            LFE Channel: None
            Sampling Frequency: 48khz
            Bits Per Sample: 16
    it is here.

    Lets see what the Pioneers make of it.
