    i have this xvid avi file and when i converted it to SVCD using tmpgenc it made things a little worse. for instance, i fowarded it to this part in the movie where there is lots of fire and it made it blocky and choppy but then when i look at the xvid version its smooth and good quality. i

    thought tmpgnc was the best at converting but could any1 tell me any other program or way to make it better quality? :confused:

    I use DRDIVX to convert it to divx first as my TMPEGEnc doesn't likeXVID's very much.Also it may sound like extra work but it takes less time that XVID to MPEG2 using TMPEGEnc

    going from one highly compressed format to another is always gonna end up looking like arse.

    What do you suggest then Dreamliner. I have this problem that when i do a XVID file that it takes nearly twice as long as a DIVX and sometimes TMPEGEnc just shuts down when i load it. i don't see much difference in the quality of the DIVX OR XVID. Or do i just need the latest XVID codec or a TMPEGEnc plug in

    it probably has to do with the type of quantization used.

    Probably a good idea to get the correct (most recent) Xvid codec too.
