Default I can't turn an AVI into a S/VCD compatible file WITH SOUND

I'm hoping someone can help me out because I tried to help myself here using the nifty search option of the forums and actually found 2-3 things similar to my problem, however, I think doing all kinds of fixes may have been what messed my system up to begin with... ANYWAYS what I am trying to do is: Turn an .avi into a .mpg so that I can burn it onto a vcd or more preferably svcd. I have done this once, and then my codecs got all messed up. I'm pretty sure everything is reinstalled correctly but who knows (hopefully one of you people )


Basicly, I use TMPGEnc and when I attempt the change the avi to a mpg it gets no sound afterwards. I've learned I can look for the sound wave to show in the "source range" section and for a few different types of DivX/XviD avi's, nothing shows. About 4/5 of the avi's that I tried show MPEG 1 Layer-3 as the audio when I Right Click->Properties->Summary and in GSpot alike. So I think the problem should lie within the mp3 area Please help me if you can

Open the original AVI file(s) in "VirtualDubMod" ("File" > "Open Video File"). Then go to "File" > "File Information" and post everything that is listed in both the video and audio sections of the dialog box, or post a screenshot of the information.

Your audio stream is Mp3 (tag: 0x0055). Try converting the mp3 stream to LPCM in VDM then re-import it into TMPGEnc for conversion to mpeg.

LPCM=?

I'm not entirely sure how to rip the mp3 audio but what I tried to do before I couldn't find the LPCM part was:

Video>>Direct Steam Copy

Streams>>Stream List:
Right Click>>Full Processing Mode
Right Click>>Compression>>*Where I think I got lost*

if thats wrong or whatever please let me know. and TY for the help thusfar

"I'm not entirely sure how to rip the mp3 audio but what I tried to do before I couldn't find the LPCM part was"

Do the following (originally posted by "setarip"):

1) Load the .AVI file into VirtualDubMOD (a different program than the standard VirtualDub)

2) From the "Video" dropdown menu, select "Direct Stream Copy"

3) From the "Streams" dropdown menu, select "Stream List" - and rightclick on the audio stream, then select "Full Processing Mode" - then click on "OK". Rightclick on the audiostream again, then select "Compression" and make certain it is set to "No compression (PCM)"

4) From the "File" dropdown menu, save .AVI with a new filename

ok I think I know what VDM does now, its for re-encoding the sound right onto the avi (or in this case thats what it looks like) I'm getting the e-high5 ready now, eta is 20 seconds

12:02/48:09 has sound for the 2nd avi that I tried. A similar thing happened when I tried to save the sound off a movie in Nandub where it only saved the first 6-7 seconds... New problem
