  1. Hi,

    I am converting the following file to a svcd

    Video : XVID 624x352 12bpp 23.976
    fps 1024.6kbps (125.1 kbyte/s)
    audiocodec: framecopy (format=55 chans=2 rate48000 bits=0 B/s=13524 sample-0)

    I open the source file and choose the "save as" making sure there are no spaces or unusual characters. I choose the SVCD mpeg2enc to encode the files as i need to add subtittles. I choose "Decode with mplayer" I have checked the file plays ok and when i use the preview everything looks ok. The encoding goes fine until the very end when it says failed in red. Below is a copy of the information. The only error i can see is at the bottom which is

    ERROR: could not stat() file `/Volumes/Stuff/Movies/Lost/Lost13/lost113:': No such file or directory

    I can then burn the files using the .toc in missing media burner as I couldn`t figure out if it was possible using ffmpegX, it all seams to work fine but I would like to find out what the error means so that I can rectify it as the mentioned directory does exist. Your help is much appreciated.

    Thanks in advance,

  2. Which is the name of your source file? Does it contain any special character?

    I can reproduce this error with very plain filenames.

    It may have to do with the filename creation of the xml file, which contains illegal character ":" before the dot:

    the source file is called LostS01x03.avi
    and the path is /Volumes/Stuff/Movies/LostSeason1

    thanks in advance,

  8. Did you kept the mpg files? You may use the author tool on them to reauthor to SVCD images.

  9. Yes, I have them but used the .img file to burn the svcd.
    Cheers for the info.
