    hello
    i m parth from gujrat.
    i want t tell u the trith that VIRTUAL DUB & FLASKMPEG r the best softs to convert DAT, MPG, MPEG to DivX's AVI.Bcz its free & so simple to use. Dr. DivX is there but its not so good.It not let u perform changes in settings. u can use BITRATE CALC to get exact KBPS & SIZE of file. if u want more then go to my site

    hmmm ok
    I dont know if its posted earlier...
    I hate posting same thing again and again in forum

    Q.Is it possible to cut some part ( actually the last few minutes ) of the movie without needing to encode the WHOLE movie again?

    Q. Say I have a corrupted avi file. Will reencoding with virtua dub help me fixing the errors?

    BTW, i need some softwares for fixing corrupted avi files ..
    I know only about DivFix.
    any others....

    I have tried out Avi fix joiner and works really well for fixing corrupt files ... success rate of the software is excellent ... fixed all the avi's till now ... and it requires only a single click ... no complicated options

    get it frm http://www.fixvideo.com ..!!!

    dunno abt fixing sorry
    as for the cuttin part
    i use tmpgenc .. so in that theres an option to select the part of the file u wanna encode ... u just enter the start and end frame uw ant to encode. . so thats pretty handy ..
    dunno abt virtualdub ... so ill look ard ...
    just wait for the experts like i always say ..a nd dun worry this hasnt been posted before :D

    Virtual dub is just complicated. either use Dr Divx or Easy divx(freeware)

    most of DAT files we found on VCDs are encoded in MPEG format.... so just change the extension from DAT to MPG...

    @alib_i what other questions ?
    @shekharprakash .... they arent MOSTLY mpg .. THEY ARE mpg ...
    all dats are essentially mpgs
    but not exactly mpgs .. they contain a lil more info as blade_runner might clarify later
    very few vcds mostly pirated ones have streaming mpgs as dat
    which u have to reencode if u want to make a vcd again
    when u wanna make a vcd u essentially convert the video to MPG
    and then the writing software like nero adds other info and makes it a DAT
    just a lil explaination ... but what u said is definitely true
    renamin dat to mpg works
    infact just drag and drop dat into WMP and it works too
    again ... the topic didnt deal with converting dat to mpg ... to make DIVX from dats .... mpgs ... avis .. etc ... not interconversion ...
    as for fixing problems .. im not sure what u mean .. but if ur talkin abt those glitches between a movie where it seems like a cd just skipped .. dunno man .. ive never done anything abt it
    once i ust tried encoding that file using another codec in virtual dub
    then used tmpgenc as usual to get a vcd .. it skipped that part
    never used even divfix .. maybe i should try
    will let u know

    No i think for that u need a movie editor, what we have talked about in the earlier posts are basically encoders/splitters/joiners/rippers.

    Go to this page page for a list of good movie makers. -http://www.divx.com/software/
