  Question 1 - What is 'AVI to VCD / DVD'?
  'AVI to VCD / DVD' is a Windows based program to encode avi files to VCD/DVD/SVCD compliant mpeg files for recording to VCD with a VCD creation program. The resulting VCD/DVD/SVCD can be played on VCD players, and many DVD players.
  Question 2 - OK, I have encoded my files, how do I copy them to a VCD/DVD/SVCD?
  'AVI to VCD / DVD' is just the file encoder. You will still need a CD recording application which can create all the required structures required for a VCD/DVD/SVCD, as well as write the mpeg files to individual tracks on the VCD/DVD/SVCD. There are several such packages out there such as NTI CD Maker, the full (Deluxe or Platinum) version of EZ CD Creator, InstantVideo, Nero, etc. YOU CAN'T JUST RECORD THE MPEG TO A CD AND EXPECT IT TO PLAY IN A DVD PLAYER! If your CD recording application can create VCD/DVD/SVCD's, there will be an explicit setting for creating a VCD/DVD/SVCD. Check your manual. For example, with Easy CD Creator, you need to use the EZ VCD Creator application which comes with it. For InstantCD, you need to use the InstantVideo selection in the startup menu.
  Question 3 - I made a VCD, but my DVD player cannot play it.
  Not all DVD players can play VCDs. Some DVD players that can play
commercially stamped "silver" VCD's cannot play VCD's on CD-R. You
need to try both CD-R and CD-RW media. I have found that even different brands of CD-RW get different results.
  Question 4 - I get a "FATAL ERROR: Could not retrieve video frame xxxx" error".
  If the frame number is 0, then you either do not have a properly installed codec for the compression method this video uses, or the codec in question is not accessible from DirectShow or Video-for-Windows, and cannot be used
with 'AVI to VCD / DVD' ver 2.0. You might also need to upgrade the version of DirectX installed on your system.

If the frame number is higher than 0:

Most likely either your video is corrupted (the video frame in question
is "damaged") or the codec has a bug. 'AVI to VCD / DVD' tries to skip over the corrupted frame to the next good frame (it will skip up to 15 bad frames for most codecs, or 60 frames for Divx, where this is much more common a problem). This is most usually caused by downloading video from the net, and having the download fail. When you restart the download where it left off, often the video is corrupted at the point of resumption. If this is the case, you need to re-download the avi in one single, unbroken session.
  Question 5 - The encoder will not encode the avi I have.
 

Make sure you have installed DirectX 8.1or higher version. And the video codec which you use should be compatible with DirectX.
If you cannot convert your avi file yet, you can email to us (support@avi-vcd.com), and tell us your avi file parameters. We will fix it as soon as possible.

If you don't know what the parameters of the video file you have are, in explorer, right click on the file once, then select 'Properties',
then select the tab 'Details' or 'Summary', then you will see the parameters.

Note that for best quality, there are preferred values which will not
require 'AVI to VCD / DVD' to resize or resample the input to match VCD
specifications. The ideal values are (depending on target format):

NTSC:
Horzontal width: 352
Vertical height: 240
Frames per second: 29.97
Colour depth: 24 or 32 bits

PAL:
Horzontal width: 352
Vertical height: 288
Frames per second: 25
Colour depth: 24 or 32 bits


AUDIO (NTSC, PAL, or FILM):
44.1KHz, 16 bit, mono or stereo

  Question 6 - What's a codec?
  Codec stands for "COmpressor/DECompressor". Every compressed video file uses a codec to decompress the individual frames for playback. There are a great many codecs. Some come with Windows, others must be downloaded and installed before you can play back the video. Some codecs are not compatible with DirectX, which is what 'AVI to VCD / DVD' uses to decode the video frames, in which case you will not be able to encode the video using 'AVI to VCD / DVD'. Try getting the latest version of the codec, it might work with 'AVI to VCD / DVD'.
  Question 7 - Where do I get a codec?
  There are a lot of codecs, and as many places to get them as there are codecs. If you downloaded a video from the web, and you don't have the codec it requires, check the website you downloaded the video from for information on where to get the codec.
  Question 8 - Why is 'AVI to VCD / DVD' so slow?
 

Depending on your computer system, you may experience anywhere from 1 to 10 frames (more or less) encoded per second. Some systems will be slower, some faster. This means it might easily take from 3 to 30 hours to encode 1 hour of video to mpeg. Mpeg encoding is a computationally intensive, and slow, process. The characteristics of the video also have an effect. If your video is 720x480, for example, 'AVI to VCD / DVD' needs to resize each frame to 352x240(or 352x288 for PAL), which adds to the time required. Some codecs are also slower than others.

  Question 9 - My audio/video "lipsync" is bad after encoding to mpeg.
 

We have make a lot of effort on this issue, now it should be fixed. If you have met  this problem yet, you can email to us, and tell us your avi file parameters. We will fix it as soon as possible.

If you don't know what the parameters of the video file you have are, in explorer, right click on the file once, then select 'Properties',
then select the tab 'Details' or 'Summary', then you will see the parameters

  Question 10 - When I encode a video the resulting mpeg is larger than the source?
  The resulting mpeg will always be 176400 bytes x # of seconds in source
video. This is a result of the VCD standard.
  Question 11 - When I encode an avi file that uses the Cinepak (or other) codec,the resulting mpeg is very "blocky".
  The encoded mpeg can be no better than the original source file for video quality, in fact it is usually significantly worse. This applies to all codecs. To obtain maximum quality, you must use a high quality original video that is only slightly compressed, or not compressed at all. Simply encoding miscellaneous avi's you may have lying around will probably not work very well. The encoder is paricularily sensitive to noise, if the source avi has visible noise in the picture (as from VHS video tape), it will not encode well.
  Question 12 - When I encode a screen capture sequence, or a computer generated animation, the resulting mpeg is not very clear.
  Mpeg was intended to compress real world video images, not artificial
computer generated images.
  Question 13 - When I play back the resulting mpeg, the video occasionally
  eezes, or it plays like a slide show with a new still frame
every few seconds while the audio continues.

Try turning your screen saver off completely before starting the encode.
Many users have reported this solves the problem for them, though I have never experienced it myself. Also make sure you have the latest version of DirectX and the codec your video uses. The DIVX codec exhibits this behavior on many PC's. This is a bug in the Divx codec. Divx is aware of the problem and expects a fix in the next release of the divx codec. (Current version of Divx codec as of this writing, 5.02).
  Question 14 - 'AVI to VCD / DVD' will not encode the video from my mjpeg capture card?
 

Some mjpeg capture cards use a hardware based codec which is not compatible with the DirectShow component of DirectX. Some software mjpeg codecs are also not compatible with DirectX. You should first make sure you have the latest version of the codec. If that still does not work, then the only other thing I can suggest is to contact the manufacturer and request a DirectShow compatible version of your codec. Also make sure you have the latest version of DirectX installed on your system.

  Question 15 - I'm having problems encoding videos captured from my DV Camcorder.
  Generally, there are no issues with encoding Type 2 DV avi files,
and if your DV capture program gives you the option, you should choose Type 2 DV instead of Type 1. However, if you attempt to encode Type 1 DV avi files, you may experience the following error message:
"Error attempting to read audio from Type 1 DV .avi file Re-render video with video editor and try again!"

This occurs when DirectShow reports to 'AVI to VCD / DVD' that a Type 1 DV file with 48KHz audio has 32KHz audio! Usually this occurs when you try to encode a Type 1 file directly after capture from a DV camera. If this file is first edited with an video editor (such as Media Studio Pro) then re-rendered to a Type 1 DV file, 'AVI to VCD / DVD' can usually encode this fine. I have not been able to correct this problem as yet, but I am still working on it. In the meantime, it does not affect most individuals since generally avi files are edited after capture and before encoding.

A simple workaround for the above issue is to set your camcorder to 32KHz,12 bit audio. This seems to works fine even with Type 1 DV files.

Some camcorders work better during capture if they are powered through the
AC adapter rather than the battery. Check your owner's manual.

Sound quality: If you experience poor quality audio, generally described as noise, when encoding Type 1 DV files, try rerendering your DV file to Type 2, or use 32KHz audio.

Pinnacle DV500 Owners:
Make sure you upgrade to Version 8.1 of DirectX (or later) and get the Version 4.0 (or later) DV 500 driver from the Pinnacle web site.
  Question 16 - Adaptec's Easy VCD Creator says the mpeg produced by 'AVI to VCD / DVD' is not "Whitebook" compliant?
  Start up VCD creator, go to Help - > About. What does the dialog box
say next to "MCI Mpeg Video Driver:"? If it says something other than
"DirectShow" or "ActiveMovie", for example "QI Cinemaster DVD", than that's likely the problem. Easy VCD Creator uses the default MCI MPEG driver to determine the source mpegs characteristics. Many DVD software players replace the DirectShow MCI Driver with their own, which may not properly identify the mpeg file characteristics to Easy VCD Creator. All I can suggest is that you remove whatever software installed the new MCI driver and try again. You should also request a fix from the manufacturer of the software which caused the problem.
  Question 17 - The VCD creation program I use "Brand X", does not accept the voutput of 'AVI to VCD / DVD'. What can I do?
  Make sure you are using the latest version of the program. If that still
does not work, send me an email with the name, version, and a web location where I can download an evaluation copy of the program in question. I will attempt to resolve this for the next version. If an evaluation version is not available, I will contact the software company and see if they are willing to help.
