Unhappy need help

Need Help!!

Been trying to get a good dvd video burn, but can't seem to get te job

done. This is what I have done so far. Please tell me what I am

missing.

DL video file from Kazza
example: Top Gun [DivX] .avi

opened VirtualDub
opened video file
checked off direct stream copy (video)
checked off direct stream copy (audio)
moved to last frame
moved to beginning..(mark in)
move slider to middle of frame
pressed keyframe previous
mark out
saved avi
let Virtual do it's thing

opened Nero 5.5.9.9
selected cd..only option avail.
compile a new cd
selected other cd formats
selected video cd
hit finished
loaded the avi I saved in Virtual
Nero did the encode
Burned CD

Put CD in DVD player..and this is what I see:

Picture-not clear..looks like a bad connection
images-somewhat blurry..and much smaller
re-adjust tv to HD format and same thing

System

Windows XP
Burner: HP Factory
TV: 61 SONY Projection
DVD: SONY

Hookup's are fine. Regular DVD's play perfect

So, what am I doing wrong?

Many thanks,

"Nero did the encode" - THIS is what you are doing wrong...


To create a VCD:

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!)
