    I used many converters. eg. xillisoft video converter

    I am just not able to convert vcd files .dat to .avi or .mp4

    conversion is ok but there is a mismatch between sound and video...quite a few secs.

    This happens ONLY with .dat vcd files and not with other video files.

    How do i convert .dat files to .avi without audio/video mismatch?

    Use VirtualDub for converison from dat/vcd/mpg to avi...
    www.virtualdub.org
    and go to www.doom9.org for info on compression and sync and all...

    virtualdub is grt tool...i have compresses about full 5 movies....from 2 cds to 1 700MB avi..best quality of video and audio both...
    mainly...u can do mp3 CBR 96 kbps + video bitrate in XVID abt 600 kbps... (for DVDs u cna even do less bitrates)..

    and do it in 2pass...
    firat test all setings u like on small 5 mb file...and then do for full movie.. got it?

    x264 latest AVC codec which gives more quality and less size..(means lower bitrate and high quality)..

    Regards,
    Parth Barot.

    links imp: www.virtualdub.org
    www.doom9.org
    www.free-codecs.com
    www.videolan.org and serch x264 codec on that.
