A)

1) Use VirtualDubMOD to demultiplex and save the .AC3 audiostream

2) While still in VirtualDubMOD, disable the audiostream

3) Save the silent .AVI with a new filename


THEN

B) One set of procedures (other posters may/probably will suggest alternative methods) would be:

1) Use "TMPGEnc" (or "TMPGEncPlus") to convert the silent .AVI (DivX-compressed or otherwise) to compliant MPEG2-for-DVD format - Use "TMPGEnc's" DVD wizard/template to accomplish this

2) Use "TMPGEnc DVD Author" (a different program than "TMPGEnc") to load both the silent compliant MPEG-2 file and the .AC3 audiostream and then easily create the required additional DVD files and structure (and chapters and a menu, if you wish)


**If the combined filesize of the DVD "package" written to your hard drive is greater than 4.37Gb, use DVD Shrink (or similar) to compress


If your O/S is either Win2000 or WinXP, TMPGEnc DVD Author can also burn your DVD. Otherwise, use NERO to burn in "DVD-Video" mode
(As an alternative to "TMPGEnc DVD Author", you could use "DVDLab")


Let us know of your success ;>}

HUGE waste of time!

Set to either "Fast" or "Normal"

again..thanks alot..!!

questions:
1)while playing the dvd i created there is every few minutes or so a blocky frame or two ...can it be avoided ?
2)besides the superier ac3 audio the mpeg2 in the dvd looks great - much better than a divx converted to vcd.
3)on the blank dvd it says 120min.... what's that ?

thanks a lot !!

yes. high setting won't do a bloody thing for you.

what speed are you burning at? 4x or lower is best.
what media? is it the right media?

1) Probably not

2) I don't see a question here

3) Capacity of 2 hours of standard DVD Video (You can put more on a DVD by using DVD Shrink)
