question : LUSENET : Video CD : One Thread

I have a movie that is in avi format that i converted to mpeg format that i want to burn onto cd to watch in my dvd player. When i converted it, it came out to be about 118 mins or so and a cdr hold about 80 mins, is there program or way to make it smaller or compress it to a different format that should play in my dvd player. If anyone can help me with this it would be much appreciated. I used the program tmpgenc to comvert it, maybe there might be a better one thanks dwayne

use tmpgenc to cut the movie in half go to file mpeg tools open cut and join then add mpeg then click output file then when you are done it should make two mpegs if you want when you download an mpeg to covert go to the bottom of tmpgenc and hit configure and on the advanced tab double click the source frame range and you can make two mpegs before you start your encoding feel free to email me and let me know if it works ok

ianswered part of it , and then i gave the rest of the answer in an email how would you split an mpeg into two files

-- cb (, October 18, 2002.

the answer is NO there is not another way of encoding it so that it will fit on a regular cd-r and play in your dvd player...

yes but he already had it an mpeg format and what I gathered from his question was he needed to make the file smaller so he could fit on cdr to play in dvd player as vcd , where did I go wrong can anybody tell me. Oh by the way how come I got an email back stating this worked fine.

.the only other way is before encoding select a tmpg template (downloaded from vcd sefys or make it all fit on 1 will look kinda crappy but it will fit.

you can buy a 99 min cdr if your burner will read it or you can try cliping it like ya'll siad and overburn if your burner will thats what i do i have fit 900mb on tdk's 80min.
