I too am having problems with converting some xvid files into vcd's using tmpge and vdub. I have followed the recomendations in the forum, however still have problems with the video in the conversion stopping while the audio continues. I have tried LOTR TTT, bourne identity, and a few other xvids. They always stop in the same place every time. I have checked the source file and they all work fine as an avi, but as soon as you try to convert them the video freezes in the same spot each time. I have the AC3 codec and xvid codec. I use vdub to extract the audio as a wav file then merge it with the avi video with tmpge. Any help would be appreciated, as I have been trying for over a month now. I have also increased the direct show vfapi priority to the highest - no help though. Thanks
