"the format of the audio stream is the same as the video"

This makes NO SENSE whatsoever.

The video format of an .AVI might be Uncompressed RGB, DivX v.3.11, 4.12, 5.03, Xvid, etc.

The audio format of an .AVI might be, Uncompressed PCM (.WAV), CBR-.MP3, VBR-.MP3, .AC3, etc.

I think we both know that he meant the audio and video stream inputs are tmpgenc are the same .avi file...

Having said that, "juanchankein" open the video file in VirtualDub and post the adio information.

i opened de video file in VirtualDub and got this message
"Virtualdub has detected an improper VBR in the audio encoding in the source AVI file and will rewrite the audio header with standard CBR values during processing for better compatibility. This may introduce up to 13743 ms of skew from the video stream. If this is unacceptable, decompress the "entire" audio stream to an uncompressed WAV file and recompress with a constant bitrate encoder. (bitrate : 136.2 +- 19.2 kbps)"
this is the first time i use this program so i left it alone and hope you can tell me what can i do
thanks.....

Converting .AVIs with VBR-MP3 Audio

Simply use NanDub to save the audio stream as an Uncompressed PCM (WAV) file as follows:
Load your original .AVI into NanDub
Set "Video" to "Direct Stream Copy"
Set "Audio" to "Full Processing Mode"
From the "Audio" dropdown menu, select "Compression" - and choose "<No compression(PCM)>"
From the "File" dropdown menu, select "Save WAV" (Enter a new filename with a ".WAV" extender).Click on "OK"
Then set "Video" to "Direct Stream Copying"
Then save the .AVI as a silent .AVI (set "Audio" to "No audio" after you've saved the WAV file).

Then close NanDub and restart it
Set "Audio" to "No audio"
Load your silent .AVI
Set "Video" to "Direct Stream Copying"
Under "Audio" click on "WAV Audio" and load your .WAV
Set "Audio" to "Full Processing Mode"
From the "Audio" dropdown menu, select "Compression" and choose the appropriate .MP3 settings. Click on "OK"
From the "File" dropdown menu, select "Save as AVI" and save your file with a new filename.


TMPGEnc should now accept this new .AVI's video and audio streams for processing.

Your belief that you know what the poster means, whether correct or not, wouldn't in any way help us resolve his problem - which required knowing the format of the original audiostream, as I asked of the poster...

i checked the original avi file and it has bad frames in 1 second of the movie, this is where tmpgenc gives the dark screen and it keeps that screen for the rest of the output file... is there anyway i can fix this?
thanks
