and i got CD and DVD rewriters.
I usually download tv series and then put them on VCD which needs no encoding to burn, but now i started to put them on DVD and it doesnt do any encoding just converts my mpeg files to VOB and puts all them in folders. when i burn all that onto DVD and i start playing it.. at the end episodes start to get a/v desyncs and i have no idea why
can i any help here... like what do i need and what to do
If you're re-encoding, make sure your source audio is constant rather than variable bitrate. VBR audio tends to desynch. I can't quite remember how I've overcome this problem before, but I think I used the LAME audio encoder with TMPGenc.
Are you sure it's not re-encoding? A VCD would be MPEG1, whereas DVD would (should) be MPEG2. What are you using to create the VOB files?
i use TMPG authorizing tool to make vob's and tmpgenc to re-encode stuff. btw today i done this film and it was alrite, no a/v desyncs but it was MPEG1 and came out alrite on dvd. but then i tried different film but with the same encoding settings that i used with previous.... and i had a/v desync :(
If it's a VBR MP3 source then demux that (extract just the audio) and then save it as a WAV - proper CD quality 44.1KHz 16 bit no compression; then remux the WAV (put the audio back) - I think you can do this in TMPEGenc but I don't know the specific options, I have a really old version of that from when it was free. You can do it in VirtualDub for sure.
This can help with desync problems like Marc said; I'm a bit bemused as to why the MPEG1 format worked OK, but maybe the VBR audio is better in a CBR video context, whereas your MPEG2 video settings could be VBR too...
