Thanks. It worked perfect.

Not supported. If anybody finds a UTF16->ANSI or UTF16->UTF8 conversion function (better if written in VB ), please share it.

I updated AVS2DVD to the new version 2.3.0 today. I have been using AVS2DVD for creating menu based DVD's. I was taking some MPG2 streams I made from capturing some old VHS tapes to make a DVD with (I'm using Pinnacle Studio 11). But both the 2.2.5 and 2.3.0 version seem to be hosing up the menu playback. I can create the menu fine and it has the 3 videos on it. But when I generate the DVD structure and select a menu option two of the options are playign the same video. For the one that seems hosed it starts to play it for about 2 seconds then it switches to playing one of the other videos. Does anyone know if there are some "glitches" in the menuing?

Note: I'm new to all this kind of stuff.

Thanks,

Hi TechiePatriot,

first of all, welcome here.

Just 2 quick questions to better understand the problem:

1. Have you tried to burn the DVD and play the disc in a standalone DVD player? Same issue?

2. What operating system are you using?

3. Do you still have the log file generated by AVStoDVD? If yes, please post it.

Let me know



Bye

1)
I was able to burn the DVD and the Menu and DVD worked fine. It looks like it just won't work in PowerDVD (V7.3).

2)
I am using WinXPSP2

Thus you have to complain with PowerDVD author... What about Media Player Classic?

From the log file, everything is OK.

A new 2.3.1 (very very) Alpha has been released. No help file, no installer available.

Change log:
- Some bugs fixed
- Added 'DVD Subs Font' in 'Preferences'/'AuthoringBurning': allows change of font name, format and size for authored subs.
- Added 'Use PAL SpeedUp for NTSC-film to PAL' in 'Preferences'/'Encoding' (AssumeFPS() is used instead of DGPulldown to upsize fps)
- Added 'Save general Settings at program Exit' in 'Preferences'/'Misc' ('DVD Size', 'Output Setup', 'Advanced Project Settings' can be stored in the Windows Registry)
- Added 'MSharpen' AviSynth filter (by Donald Graft) in 'Title Edit'/'AviSynth'
- Added 'ColorMatrix' AviSynth filter (by Wilbert & Tritical) in 'Title Edit'/'AviSynth'
- Added 'SubsExtension' option in 'Title Edit'/'Subtitles'
- FFmpeg updated to r23107
- MediaInfo updated to 0.7.33

Any report is appreciated.



Bye

I am using AVStoDVD 2.3.0 Mat release, which as HCenc beta. With the new version of AVStoDVD, my mkv to DVD conversion failed. This is due to HCenc. (I am trying to use HCenc vbr 2 option).

@shreeit

some more details such as:

1. Operating System used
2. DirectShow codecs installed
3. Is Haali Media Splitter installed?
4. Does the problem happen only with 2.3.0 (with HCenc 0.24beta) or with 2.2.6 (with HCenc 0.23) too?
5. Copy and past AVStoDVD log file here

Have you read the Help section carefully? The FAQ can help you a lot.



Bye

I've just tried converting an MKV to PAL DVD. What I've found is that the resulting disc has slight pauses every few seconds. I assume this is to do with converting 23->25 fps? Any ideas how to avoid this?

@shreeit

please reply to questions 2. and 4.

Instead of starting the project, click on the 'Preview Clip' icon. If there is any AviSynth error message in the screen, please report it here. Thanks.


@rendez2k

Yes, it could be. New 2.3.1 Alpha has the option to use NTSC->PAL 4% speed up using AssumeFPS instead of DGPulldown. Just activate 'Preferences'/'Use PAL SpeedUp for NTSC-film to PAL' before adding your mkv to the project.

Let me know



Bye

Well I tested it with a few samples. It doesn't have the larger pauses every few seconds but it doesn't seem perfectly smooth either.

Well, something better is better than nothing... take note that the 23.976->25 fps pulldown causes a very small jerk in video playback (every 0.5 seconds one field is repeated), not a large pause every few seconds, so maybe the cause is not (only) the pulldown effect.

Could you provide a small clip sample?

No problem! I'll send you something when I get home tonight.

@rendez2k

thanks for sending the sample clip. It seems that the stuttering issue is caused by the 'convertfps=true' flag in the DirectShowSource call. Removing it, or using FFMpegSource, along with the NTSC->PAL 4% speed option on, video playback is smooth. Please confirm if it works for you as well.

As a matter of fact, 'convertfps=true' should be used when video framerate is variable (VFR). From the next release, I will add this flag only if it is really necessary.



Bye

@Mrc:

The error:

AVIFileSource: Couldn't open file 'G:\tmg-bb-720p-x264.mkv'
(C:\Temp\AviSynthP.avs, Line 1)

2. DirectShow codecs installed -Yes
3. Is Haali Media Splitter installed? - Yes
4. Does the problem happen only with 2.3.0 (with HCenc 0.24beta) or with 2.2.6 (with HCenc 0.23) too?

Yes. I did not have problem in past.
