Default Can I get your superb help once again?

I have a mpg file that is 779 Mb big. What's the best way to get it into a CD? Shall I make a VCD? How do I do that?
Or can i split the file in 2 using a programme of some sort?

Thanks in advance.

The ONLY reason to convert it to VCD is if you want to view it on a television hooked up to a standalone DVD player.

To split an MPEG file, use TMPGEnc, as follows:

File>>MPEGTools>>Merge&Cut

Let us know of your success ;>}

Thanks!
You did it again!
Worked like a charm.

And now if I do want to watch it on a standalone DVD-player on my TV. Shall I make a VCD or SVCD? How do I make it into a VCD or SVCD? Is there eny tutorial I can read?
I live in Sweden where we use the PAL system.

An SVCD may yield better playback, however it will be significantly larger in size than a vcd. Use the TMPGEnc templates to select your vcd/svcd pal template. vcdhelp.com and divx-digest.com contain helpful guides, to help you in this process. Subsequently, due to time and or size constraints of a cd you may have to split the file using the mpeg cutter feature in TMPGEnc.

My pleasure ;>}


Batman has already provided you with the "easy way" to create VDCs and/or SVCDs.

If, as I do, you preferr to exercise complete control over the process, just say so - and I'll provide you with the detailed way of doing so...

This is the way I do it (manual control) - To create a VCD:

(NOTE: If necessary, because controls are greyed-out, press the "Load" radio button and select "Unlock.mcf")

1) Load .AVI file into TMPGEnc
2) Set to "System Video and Audio" (lower right side)
3) Click on "Setting" radio button
4) Click on "System" tab, change mode to "MPEG1-VideoCD" (from default of "MPEG1")
5) Click on "Advanced" tab, change "Video arrange method" to "Center (Custom Size"), change dimensions to 352x288 or 352x240
6) Change "Source aspect ratio" to either "4:3 525 line (NTSC 704x480)", "4:3 525 line (NTSC)", or "16:9 525 line (NTSC)" - If you're in the PAL world choose either of the two similar PAL settings instead
7) Under the "Video" tab, change the dimensions to 352x288 or 352x240 (Note: "Video" tab mode of "MPEG1" is okay) - for highest quality set "Motion Search Precision" to "Highest Quality". Change the "Aspect Ratio" to match, as closely as possible, the "Source Aspect Ratio" you set under the "Advanced" tab.
8) Change "Rate Control Mode" to "Automatic VBR (CQ_VBR)
9) Under the "Audio" tab, set to 44,100 224Kbps
10) Press "Start"


Note that if your video runs longer than 60 minutes, you'll have to subsequently split your VCD-MPG file in two. This too can be easily and precisely accomplished using TMPGEnc. Under the "Files" dropdown menu, click on "MPEG Tools" and select the "Merge & Cut" tab. Once again, make sure to change the mode to "MPEG1-Video CD". Load your file and enter a new (.MPG) name in the "Output file" box. Then doubleclick on the ORIGINAL file's name in the window, which will bring you to the cutting area. Select your desired start and end points for the first half, click on "Okay" which will bring you back to the first window and generate (in a sequence of three automated steps) the first new file. To create the second new file, repeat the steps starting with "Then doubleclick on the ORIGINAL..." (be extra patient with the second half, as the program has to do more seeking to establish the beginning of the new file)

Use a burning program, such as NERO to burn your CD-R or R/W CD as a VCD (DON'T ask NERO to format the file as a VCD, since you've already accomplished this!)

Once again, Setarip RULES!

That is what I would have done exactly, but bear in mind, SVCD is only playable on a Standalone DVD player if it supports it! (look at the manual)
