TMPGe wprks great for 25 second test VCD, long movie has no soundgreenspun.com : LUSENET : Video CD : One Thread
I've got a movie in 3ivx format that I'm trying to convert to (S)VCD with TMPGe. I did a 25 second test movie and that SVCD worked great. When I do a whole 55 minutes worth of a movie it creates it with video but no sound. Have tried both VCD and SVCD formats, same issue.

Wanted to specify that I'm using TMPGEnc Plus 2.5.

Try demuxing the original video into separate audio and video streams. Use TMPGenc to convert the video and use BeSweet (http://www.doom9.net in the Downloads section) to convert the audio to MPEG audio. MPEG audio is called MPA in BeSweet. I forgot to say that you should get BeSweet GUI as the GUI version is a lot easier to use. Finally, use TMPGenc to mux the video and audio together to make your final VCD or SVCD and you should be OK.

Try using Honestech Encoder 6.0. It does a wonderful job in converting (quality wise). It will leave a watermark at the bottom left corner of your video - which is hardly noticeable. If you like the software you can then purchase it.
HT Encoder will convert any video that you can play in your MS Windows player.
