    Load the unlock template found in the "extra" folder under the TMPGenc installation directory if the option to create a combined audio and video file is greyed out. This should enable you to select this option in the bottom right hand corner.

    Actually I have seen stuff about KVCD but never looked into it. What are the benefits of KVCD?

    Essentially fit 2 hours of reasonable quality video on a CD and play it in a DVD player.

    So is it better than SVCD or is it to give SVCD like quality to players which can only play VCD's? Most UK DVD players support VCD playback but not SVCD (which has always been more popular in Asia than in Europe).

    A KVCD using MPEG1 that lasts 2 hours will certainly be less quality than an SVCD (30 mins max) using MPEG2 as standard. It's really about getting a whole film on a CD at a watchable quality - the picture isn't crisp, but it is watchable.

    There are various KVCD templates which allow for various different quality/length trade offs. You can also tweak the templates yourself (mainly the CQ setting and bitrate to achieve max quality using the full CD - best to use a bitrate calculator). You can alos use a KDVD to produce > 4 hours of video on a DVD at a reasonab;e quality.
