Thread: Black VCD

  1. #1

    Default Black VCD

    I tried to use TMPEGnc to encode my DV-AVI to mpg (using the VCD template) so I can put it onto VCD. After it encoded all I could see was black, although I could hear the sounds..

    Is this a codec problem on my pc's side? or is the file not encoded right, or soemthing? Should i be able to watch the .mpg on my PC, or does it only work on the DVD player?

    Im a real n00b at this, so any help with be appreciated.. thanks

    Just to get the obvious out of the way, can you play back the AVI okay on your PC (i.e do u have the relevant codec installed to playback the AVI file).

    Interesting and maybe a coincidence Dom.

    yesterday when I went to your web site to view your two movies I had the same issue.

    Playing the movies from the web site, in the little pop-up player I got only sound and a black movie. However, if I right-clicked on the movie and chose the zoom to full screen option the movies came up but (obviously) in reduced, zoomed quality.

    I wonder if the the two things are related.

    Oh, and I still think you should have asked that guy who fell A-over-T over the balcony if he could do it again for a 'better take'. I'm sure he blinked on the way down - lol
