Unhappy Flask Sound problems

I'm encoding movies using Flask ver.6 . I am able to encode and compress the video using any video codec I want to, yet no matter which Audio codec I try to use, it always sets the sound to PCM 44khz 16 Bit, leaving me with a massive AVI. I'd rather convert the stream to 320kbps Mpeg. Is there some setting that's stopping me from using mp3 audio codec(s)? I've tried changing the audio stream from 48khz to 41khz and I still get the same problem.

Have you made sure that Flask is set to Decode Audio?

Yep. Done that. Checked everything I can think of.

Funny. Try using an earlier version of Flask instead (0.594). I have always preferred it to the newer one.

Then I suggest that you use Flask to encode the video alone. Use other softwares, like Graphedit or vob2audio or even Flask0.6, to extract the audio to a .wav file. Virtualdub will allow you to interleave the audio and video together.

Tried ver5 again. It dosen't seem to let me select the bits of footage I want, as I have made one big vob file out of two. The audio codec also wont work. Nor does it have the options to resize the video as well as that output pad. Is there something I have botched in the installation?

No. It is that way with the unpatched 0.594 installation. Follow my suggestion of working with the audio separately and you shouldn't have much problems.

Ok, the only problem I have with rejoining the audio and video seperately is that it might go out of synch. I have a fairly new computer amd ath 1.7 256mb ram so what are the chances of synch prolems? I think I have the newest version of virtual dub installed.

Your CPU specs does not matter in this. The faster the CPU, the more quickly the job is done. As simple as that.

Have a look at the Interleave option under the Audio section. It's not hard to understand.

Fair enough.

Which prog do I use to convert AC3 to mpeg?

Does nandub do it?
