20 october 2005 version 1.2.3 build 1
- Added: Now you can also convert AVI with AR of 1:1 (TV caps, DV). It's actually the same resizing algo as in the good ol' days of dvd2svcd 1.2.1 B3.
- Bug fix: Grande bug fixed in AVI to whatever when using the internal routines. If a chunk had a size of 0 it would stop demuxing the rest of the AVI fil leaving the audio incomplete. (Thanks to Nick and manolito)
- Fix: IMDB query is now working again
- Enhancement: All DVD2AVI and MPEG2DecXX.dll support has been removed. Only Donald Graft's DGMPGDec is supported (it is based on dvd2avi, but Donald has made tremendous improvements on it)
- Enhancement: Support for latest QuEnc, including special Matrix files
- Change: If you've selected DVD output and No Images, the files are muxed with MPlex instead of bbMPEG
- Enhancement:The programs in the Finalize tab is now changing depending on what output type you select (DVD, SVCD or VCD)
- Bug fix: The AC3 bitrate in an AVI was not taken into account when "No Audio Conversion" was selected.
- Fix: If you're trying to convert joined AVI files with an AC3 stream the muxer could fail due to a bad frame at the joinpoint. DVD2SVCD is now checking the entire AC3 file for bad frames (wrong length frames). This is usually such a few frames that you will not notice any sync problems.
- Bug fix: Extraction of DTS stream 0x8a is now working

This tool is a great GUI for a variety of command line programs. I use it as a DVD to DVD converter mostly. One nice thing is that if you choose not to have any of the created files deleted, the files can be used to work on another project. Also, there is a recover command to rerun a process that has been previously started. The last project I did was to take an XVID PAL High quality AVI and I transcoded it using Sonic MyDVD 5.0. I created a PAL DVD folder. I ripped the DVD with DVD2SVCD. When the TMPEGenc encoding started, I aborted the encoding and DVD2SVCD created a 20 second DVD in PAL format. I started TMPEGenc manually and my AVIsynth project file created by DVD2SVCD was still active in TMPEGenc. I went into the settings screen of TMPEGenc and set it to reencode the video into an NTSC compliant DVD video. When it was finished, I substituted the video file that I created with 20 second video that DVD2SVCD created. I started the recover utility in DVD2SVCD and chose the Muxing/cutting command and DVD2SVCD created a video_TS folder with my movie. I then used IFOedit to edit the IFO file to change it from PAL to NTSC format. The nice thing about these processes is by using DVD2SVCD, you can perform them overnite and as long as you save all the created files and the project recover file, you can pick up where you left off and continue. GREAT PACKAGE!!! Virtual Dub is great, but it creates huge files and unless you have a huge hard drive, reencoding a movie with TMPEGenc saves plenty of hard drive space.

One of my all-time favorite tools (although I don't use it as much as I used in the past - DL DVDRs are so cheap nowadays... ;) and for DVDs i was preferring DVD-ReBuilder anyways).

Im posting here just to warn:

Not only is this a great program, it taught me the processes involved in producing "things" IE: DVD, VCD, SVCD. I have a USB capture Device. My DVD projects were mediocre at best. Not to go over all things I've learned, but waht I used to di is this: Capture from VHS to harddrive. Build a DVD to harddrive w/ MyDVD 5.0 Deluxe and use DVD shrink so it would fit to 1 DVD+r. The results were not impressive. Now I'm happy. After building a DVD on my harddrive w/ MyDVD, I use DVD2SVCD to re-encode my project and what I'm left with is a Video_TS folder that can be imaged and burned onto 1 DVD+R. The difference in time between DVD Shrink and DVD2SVCD is insignificant, DVD shrink takes 30 minutes. DVD2SVCD takes 12 hours (but letting it process overnite, who cares I'm sleeping!!! nd the proccesses are auto matic!!!). The quality is extremely significant!!! My results w/ DVD2SVCD leaves me with a final Video_TS folder that is 10 times better than w/ DVDShrink. You would not think that I like DVDShrink. I use it and like it! Enough said!!!

this is all i use for dvd2svcd and avi2svcd conversion with cce, im glad to see its being packaged with D2Sroba plug in as alto of people might never have used it, i was doing 4 pass encodes like a sucker, when the plug in does near same quality conversion of a 90min flick in 3hours!!!, i say near same because its not quite the same as 4pass vbr, but for the time it takes it as near as makes no difference to my eyes,

This is the best tool for VCD and SVCD creation. Unlike what the previous reviewer is saying you can choose where you want to have a disc break. This programme is a little bit hard to figure out at first, but once you have the wright settings, it's a one click solution. Use Cinema Craft Encoder for the best and fastest result
