    well for my question i want to know if there is any software other than Virtual dub that converts divx and other codec requiring format movies into standard vcd format with a little less suffering in the quality.as i had bought a vcd of koi mil gaya and it was on Sadaf Print which was as far as i can say one of the best DVD rip to vcd formatted disc i have ever seen it was exactly almost the same clarity and colour format and the sound was as far i can say clearly dolby digital ( well I mean close to a dvd but not exact DVD Clarity)it was as if it was recorded directly from the dvd itself and taken on a vcd.if any of u guys have an idea in making such vcd's please let me know of the software and how to use it.This specially goes for the downloaded divx movies.ok thank you.

    dude... search a lil on the forum before posting yaar
    rather all the steps are as follows ( this is how i do it)
    step 1: use smart ripper or a similar program to rip the DVD vob files on ur hdd
    ull need 4.6 - 5 gb of space for this
    step 2: next i used dvd2avi to create a project file
    downsample the audio to 41000hz and save the project file (.d2v)
    also save the sound file as either wav or mp3 ( wav will take up more space ofcourse)
    step 3: open tmpenc
    select the d2v file for video source
    select the wav/mp3 file for audio
    and click next
    select source range and select have the movie for end point ... cuz ull have to split the movie into 2 vcds ...
    confirm ... then in advanced ... there will be an option in the second tab to "keep aspect ratio"
    select this ...
    confirm click next
    it'll show u whether ur file will fit on a cd or no ... thru a bar graph
    click next and select where to save the file (.mpg)
    repeat the step 3 ... now in source range select the frame u ended with previously .. and end frame let it be as "-1"
    again "keep aspect ratio"
    and follow the procedure as above
    PS: in the last window where u select where to save the file ... there will be an option to start encoding immediately ... or create another project for batch encoding
    after doing it the first time .. create another project for batch encoding. .. when ur done with the second part of the movie ... select encode now ...
    after this release all u r cpu load .. sit back ... an wait for it to happen
    step 4: use software like nero to create a VCD
    just drag and drop the file
    and burn ... DONE !!
    enjoy

    Garbage IN Garbage OUT.........Divx movies or avi's in general are compressed like hell so dont expect dvd quality outta it. Then again VCD is a low resolution or a poor video format. The sound can't be dolby digital either .........cuz VCD 2.0 supports stereo at the most. Dolby surround is possible i think. If however u can rip the dvds to vcd then u'll get the most optimal output for picture as well as sound.

    The new Dr DivX 5.2 does the trick
    1)Just copy the .vobs into ur HDD if its a pirated DVD or use SmartRipper to rip the DVD's if its a copyright DVD
    2)Open it with the new Dr.Divx 5.2 adjust it to the size n settings of ur choice and then encode

    almost the same time as dvd to vcd im afraid
    u see the procedure i mentioned in my first post in this thread ?
    well u just stop at dvd2avi and do a SAVE AVI from there
    or for such conversions id prefer using virtual dub
    after ripping use virtual dub
    select the codec u wanna use (divx 3,4,5,xvid etc)
    and click encode and leave ur comp alone till its done ;)
