It has been my experience that once you edit a VCD or SVCD compliant file, it is no longer compliant. Get a copy of TMPGenc ( It's free. Use it to demultiplex your file into separate audio and video files and then multiplex those back together into one file using a VCD template. It should fix the problem you are seeing. You will find the demultiplex and multiplex options under MPEG Tools.

I guess you need to seperate audio and video before editing. Gopher, has a demultiplexer for the same. If you are using the UNIX based terminal, I can help you with an appropriate RPM. I don't know about the windows. My experience is that you need to seperate the audio and video streams (in the streams/raw format). Edit and then multiplex it back. You need to take care of copyright voilations before you do this. This is possible if you can determine the spool density / blob density of the device. Once you demultiplex it, process it as a stream of raw bits. (Dont ever open it with an editor, since windows based editors are notorious in inserting the control charecters and new lines. Even if you want to view it, view it in the read mode) The specified RPMs can be found at You need to search a bit. After editing, merge the streams back. This is a crude method of handling since it is vulnearble to noise/cross corellations.
