    I don't know about other variants of Windows, but with Windows XP, if you copy AC3fix.exe in to the windows directory, you would be able to make a batch file (*.bat) with notepad and have it work with no problem...

  2. i seem to be having difficulty in the audio part. Here's the situation, i have a video which is XVID and audio is wav. Then in virtualdubmod, i followed the guide. i saved as wav. then i processed the wav file into ac3 using besweet. Then after that, i used ac3fix to fix it. then i import it as a media asset in dvd maestro...but when i try the navigation menu and play the file, there is still no audio....

    can someone please help me? i've been trying to do this for a week already..am really desperate...

    thanks in advance!

    DVD Maestro won't accept my ac3 files, it says "Unsupported Media : Invalid Sampling Rate" and then "Media Detection Error". My ac3 file is a stereo 192 kbps file that was run through AC3fix. Can anyone help me? Thanks

  4. Man, I forgot all about this guide. DVD Maestro is almost impossible to get 'legally'. If you're using legitimate methods I recommend buying DVDLabPRO and checking out some guides on that, or searching eBay for someone selling DVD Maestro.

    I'll see if I can pull together an update for this guide in my spare time. Many people have problems with the subtitles aspect. Other than that only the audio section needs fixing.

    Comments on what should be added are welcome. I'll see what I can do.

    *Like I said in the guide, AC3Fix is garbage. Or was last december, I haven't used the app since. From your problems it still can't convert to AC3 correctly.

    Well ChristianHJW, I guess I must be missing something right here. You say that extracting/converting matroska to avi just sucks. And, at the same time, you post a tutorial to convert directly to dvd using an all-in-one crappy software. Also, if the audio track you want to keep is not the first one, you must use mkvmerge to produce another matroska which has the preferred audio track in the first place. Moreso, if subtitles are not in srt format, at the end you must use mkvextract to extract subs and convert to srt. And you may find this does not suck.
    In my very very humble opinion, I prefer to extract all the stuff from mkv files into elementary streams, and then work with each of them with the tools of my choice, my favourite video encoder, my audio tools and so on.

    Best regards

    How do i work with a mkv file that uses aac as its audio codec and S_Text subs. Virtualdubmod does not like this subtitle format for some reason.

    Edit: I tried MKVextract and successfully got rid of the subtitles, but the conversion of the audio files is another matter. iTunes doesn't even like the file.

    using mkvextract makes the audio into .aac format.you will have to use a program to convert it to another format that it recognizes it to convert to ac3 format

    at the end before you encode in TMPG Xpress you can click output preview to see how it looks after.when i play the vid it doesnt cover the whole window.



    is it suppose to be like that when you view it from there or do i have letterboxing in the vid?

    I don't know why, but when i finish the TMPGExpress part and encode the movie part, the movie i created is fine in every way, except that it keeps pausing like every 3 seconds, kind of like it's lagging or something.

  13. Hi!

    I'm just at the first at the first part (Virtualdub opening the video) and here's the error I got.



    Can someone please help me on this? What codec do I need to install for me to enable it to be ran on Virtualdub? Thanks!

    On Step 5, Here you get to play around a bit. Leave the Image resolution to the default highest.

    My movie is 640x480 with aspect ratio = 4/3. No letterboxing exist.

    Should I set Image resolution to 720x480?

    OK Thank you V
    its best to have the extra 300mb spare at the end of the disk as the dvd will run smoother when playing if there is a space between the end of the film and the disk itself. the closer to the end of the disk the data sits while burning, the higher the chance of a miss write or data corruption or just stuff ups in general resulting in another shiny coaster. if you can avoid doing so, i strongly advise it, otherwise choose a higher rate of compression for the film or a lower audio bitrate, to accomodate for this space.
