just rename the dat files mpg, and encode audio at 48000.member since 1843
no, you can NOT make it as VCD on DVD. If you want it to play on most dvd player you must convert it to dvd file format(vob files) but you usually do not have to reconvert the video.
Read our sticky topic:
You musi convert avseq01.dat of the nr. # VCD --> movie#.mpg with, for example, VCDGear (dat -> mpeg).
Then you transcode their audio to 48 kHz.
Later you compile a DVD image set with the mpv and their transcoded_48kHz.mpa audio files. You can do it with DVD Lab. It also can do the demultiplexing and the transcoding to 48 kHz jobs for you.
New guide online soon .
5 full length movie titles on one dvd , menu's , motion menu's , multiple audio , subtitles , chapters (the correct way) ... the all in wonder guide I have been working on for the last 2 week's ... almost finished ... and it works ... no tinkering here by using ifoedit ...
It take's time to create pro results , but it's worth it ...
For those interested on getting home dvd players to play vcd mpegs , when they dont support the playback of vcd's . You can just pick the bone's of this guide and it will still work .
I have spent a lot of time getting around program shortcomings ... but I wanted to do it correctly ... and with only freeware tools involved .
It'll blow people's sock's off .
Should be online day after xmas .
I look forward to this. Long story short - I have a Chinese language VCD I bought that is not available on DVD anywhere. It's considered an old classic and I found an Englsh subtitle file for it on the Internet. I ripped the files from the VCD and couldn't get Scenarist to mux is correctly. It kept giving me an error. There's something weird in the video stream of the 1st disc that it didn't like. I used SVCD2DVD to convert it to DVD and that worked, but it introduced a bad audio sync problem. I demuxed, used IFOedit to play around with the audio offset until I got it right and muxed the audio, video and subtitles together and put some chapters in it. It does work, which is what I wanted. I'm very curious to see what you have done and perhaps I can learn something from it.
