    I have downloaded and AVI movie and want to convert it to a PAL VCD.
    First I used VirtualDub to correct the audio, renamed the converted file and
    saved as an avi. No problems here.
    Now I tried to use TNPGEnc to encode. When I select source range, I normally
    get movie footage in the preview screen. Not with this one, just black
    preview screen. Also, tried to encode all at once rather than try to split,
    I still get nothing in the
    preview window. Something else I noticed is that the conversion is a lot
    quicker than the standard length movie.
    Using GSpot I have 4 compatible video codecs installed and no codec required
    for audio.
    I also tried using Boilsoft AVI to VCD converter and this has exactly the
    same results.
    The movie plays OK on my PC using Real Player.
    How can I convert this to VCD.

    Have you upgraded TMPGEnc, I know a while back there reference to this
    problem on the site and something about an upgrade, or try here
    http://www.deskshare.com/vem.aspx, its a limited trial(30days) or $49USD to
    buy, the problem in TMPGEnc could be it does not recognize the codec
    hope this is of some help, not at the computer I have this on so its the
    best I can do.
