Hi! - i'm needing some help here! - I have tried loads of programs to convert avi - vcd... - but anyone didn't worked problerbly... - some of them gave me loads of errors, other just didn't worked... - If anyone would suggest TMPGEnc, it don't work! - In that program I got loads of errors! - here the specific of the movie file:

ALL INFO FROM GSPOT!

I don't know why i'm getting all those errors in TMPGEnc... It ain't because i'm using Windows XP right? - I tried on 2 different XP Computers, none of them worked...

If you could give me any program, please tell me! - It doesn't matter if it ain't free!

Thanks!

unquestionably the best resource for DIVX and VCD and DVD-ripping etc. Check out the software section, or post a question to that forum.

It is my understanding that TMPGEnc only works when you have installed a TMPGEnc-native codec for the file format you are trying to convert. Just having the ordinary codec on your computer will not help.

For example, there is a Quicktime-codec available as a plug-in for TMPGEnc.

Try to find a "de-codec" for your video format or try importing the video into a video editing application like Premiere and export from there to another (more common) codec.

Nero Burning Rom supports AVI-VCD direct burning, with no need to convert.

I'll found out my self now, thanks... - I converted the Avi with the Xvid Codec to a Indeo 5.0 Codec, then I could convert it to .mpg files with TMPGEnc, so I think the hournor is fallen to:
jamilon - as he said that TMPGEnc don't worked with all codecs, so thanks to him!
