video cd with 200mhz pentium ati allinwonderpro and nti cdmk : LUSENET : Video CD : One Thread

I'm having trouble getting video cd to work. I have a pentium 200mhz with an all in wonder pro 8mb pci video card. I captured the video at cif ntsc 352x240. I read that is better to capture at the higher and de-interlace but i can't capture at that it just goes to 640x480. I use adobe premiere 5.0 to convert to mpeg with the digammi plug-in. I use nti cd maker to burn the video cd. When I put it in my dvd (apex 600-ad) it shows that there is a disc in and the minuetes show but it wont play and when i put it in my computer and try to play it with ati then it flashes the begining of the video and then the screen goes black and you hear bits of the sound every so often. Ati is supposed to play video cd. I'm going to be upgrading soon to an athlon 1ghz and was going to get the ati all in wonder 128. I mostly want to put home video to video cd but might want to try some dvd also. Any recommendations on what to get on my new pc or what if anything i can do different on my 200mhz pc would be greatly appreciated. Thanks Ryan

I also have a system with AIW Pro 8meg pci, and AMD K6-300, and an early Apex 600a (sadly not listed as being CDr/CDrw or MP3 compatable). Your equipment should be more than adequate to generate MPG1.

I burned many coasters at first, dragging ATI generated mpg's in Nero.

Would get no disk error on Apex, and lock up on ATI VCD player. Running my MPG's thorough TMPGenc using NTSC MPG1 templet fixed the files such that when burned with Nero, would play flawless on PC but blocky on Apex. Used only CDr up to then.

Once I got a CDrw and burned to CDrw using EZCD Dlux, VCD's play fine on vintage Apex. Nero sadly will not play on Apex at all for me.

I've also had luck using TMPGenc to fix files that would hang at the infamous 2:37 mark on Apex. Give it a try.

Having great success grabbing 'Promethius and Bob' shorts for VCD tests!

What frames per second are you guys using. i have AMDK6-3 @400mhz but i can't capture at 30fps with out dropping frames.

my mother board is DMA 33 IDE chanels, 256MB Ram, 100mhz Bus.

please respond.

The settings i use are 30fps 44.1khz stereo 16 bit. Then video format is yvu9 planar (indeo raw) at cif ntsc (352x240). At these settings I haven't had any frames drop. I mostly work with home video 3 or 4 min. worth at a time. Capturing at those settings takes a lot of space until converted to mpeg but it seems to be the best quality and doesn't drop frames. Let me know if you find something else out I'm always trying to better quality but i think i need to upgrade my system for that. good luck

Pls get rid of any ATI products, I am 100%sure it will trouble ur system one or another way... Sometimes with your scanner, videocamera etc.. ALL_IN_WONDER PRO 32MB is royaly screwing me for past 3 months . I lost my money ($199) and time.. Simply ATI products will not work... Try to contact them, then U will really understand how they are screwing u...
