Default Using TMPGEnc: Converting DivX/XviD files to MPEG 2

Software you will need:

VirtualDub - Freeware

TMPGEnc - Freeware




The DVD you are going to create depends at the quality of the DivX file. If you have a good quality DivX file, the result is going to be good. Generally the DVD will have the same quality as your .avi/DivX file. Do not except the quality to get any better!! Also this guide is for DivX files which contain Mp3 audio and not AC3 audio (Although you may be able to use this guide on DivX files that have AC3 audio).




Let's start by opening up TMPGEnc. After it starts, the "Wizard" should come up (if it doesn't, click "File" the "Project Wizard"). Now we are going to tell TMPGEnc what kind of DVD to create, so go ahead and click "NTSC 16X9". Most often your DivX files are in 16X9 aspect ratio, so you need to keep it the same (red). Then down at the bottom, make sure the box says "CBR MPEG-1 Layer II Audio (MP2)" (blue). (Screen Shot Below)



After clicking the "Next" button, this screen should appear. Here you will select .avi/DivX file by clicking the "Browse" button at the end of the "Video" box at the top (red). It should automatically load the "Audio" for you, if it doesn't locate the audio file that is associated with that .avi/DivX file and load it via the "Browse" button just like you did the "Video". (If after you convert there is no audio, simply follow this guide to save it as a .wav file. After that you would follow this guide and insert the .wav you made via the browse button for the audio) In the "Aspect Ratio" box, you can leave "1:1 (VGA)" or you can specify if you know for sure what aspect ratio your file is in (blue). Then click "Next". (Screen Shot Below)

Default How to convert DivX/XviD to DVD MPEG2 using TMPGEnc

On the next screen, just leave everything the way it is (unless you know what your doing) and click the "Other Setting" button at the bottom on the right (red). (Screen Shot Below)



From this screen, select "Constant bitrate (CBR)" for the "Rate control mode:" (red), as your source movie is not that good for "2pass VBR". You do not need to set the "Bitrate" as we are going to do that part later. In the "Motion search precision" box, select "Motion estimate search (fast)" (blue), click "OK" on that screen, then click "Next". (Screen Shot Below)



(After clicking "Next", this warning screen may pop up. Just click "OK" to get rid of it.) (Screen Shot Below)

Default How to convert DivX/XviD to DVD MPEG2 using TMPGEnc

Select how much of the disc capacity you want to use. As we are using a DivX file and quality is not going to be that great, select something like 98% or 99% at this value so that you will not have to write the outsides of the disc, where most discs have problems (red). Make sure that the Average Video Bitrate changes when you change the disc capacity you want to use (blue). Then click "Next". (Screen Shot Below)



(If a warning screen pops up saying that the resulting file size may be larger than 4GB, just ignore it and click "Yes" to continue anyway.)

After clicking the "Next" button, this screen will come up allowing you to pick a destination directory for TMPGEnc to save the file in (red). After picking the directory, make sure you put a check mark in the "Start Encoding Immediately" box (blue). Then click "OK". (Screen Shot Below)



After clicking "OK", this warning screen may pop up, just click "Yes". (Screen Shot Below)



Now just wait for it to finish encoding. This could take generally anywhere from 2-5 hours depending on your computer specs and the size of the source file. (Screen Shot Below)



***Now we have converted our .avi/DivX file to a MPEG2 but, unfortunately this is not enough. To create a DVD-Video disc we do not need a .mpg file but, rather some .VOB, .IFO and .BUP files, which tell to our DVD player how to playback the DVD. To create these files, you will need to have a DVD Authoring program, such as TMPGEnc DVD Author. Although, there are many programs that do the same thing as TMPGEnc DVD Author, and you may have one that was included/pre-bundled when you bought your DVD burner/writer. ***
