    AVIDEMUX
    I tried to use 2 pass encoding in avidemux, but after getting the right settings etc.
    all it did was produce an avi file with no sound and some .stat file.

    Should this work automatically?

    if not, what extra stuff do i have to do to get a 2 pass encoded avi file?

    virtualdub
    if you know how to this, please tell, but I prefer the Avidemux guide.

    Thanks.

  2. VirtualDub:
    Set up first pass, run first pass, ie, File -> Save as AVI (an empty AVI and stats file are produced).
    Set up second pass, run second pass, ie ,File -> Save as AVI (AVI will contain video).

  4. Select first pass in the encoder, Save as AVI.
    Select second pass in the encoder, Save as AVI.

    See xvid configuration in step 5 of this guide:

    Well, that means you didn't get the settings right, doesn't it? I've converted to xvid using avidemux in 2 pass mode a ton of times. It's choked on the input audio format occasionally but gave me an error message first. Converting the audio stream in audacity and loading that into avidemux fixed it 100% of the time.

    Frankly if you don't know how how to use avidemux you won't have better luck with virtualdub. It's much harder to use than avidemux, and I'd recommend rereading the avidemux docs, which are excellent. The virtualdub ones are pitiful.

    BTW the .stat file is totally normal with 2 pass in avidemux. That's what it uses to set the quantizer in the 2nd pass.
