    ok so i converted my first lot of eps last night but i'm starting to notice that i can only convert from .mp4 (i've tried avi, 3gp and straight from the dvd)............why only mp4 ??
    anything i want to view i'm having to double convert, i may as well not do it because once i get to to mp4 i can just watch it on my phone. [​IMG]
    i installed the full k-lite codec pack as well, have i missed something here when i read the instructions [​IMG]

    klite is not the greatest pack and a likely cause of your troubles (if you installed the full version chances are there is a lot of redundant code and conflicting code) so that may be a good place to look, http://www.cccp-project.net/ is a good start if you need an alternative.

    Assuming the DVD is decrypted you will need to demux it first and serve it through avisynth as audio and video is usually scattered across several VOB files. DGmpegdec is a good tool for this:

    As for the AVI what codec are you using in your AVI's (I sense klite is causing hassle and is it an H264 codec?)

    Regarding 3gp that is one I would convert first but you might just want to try muxing it into MP4 first (a 40 second job max), MP4box and YAMB might be able to help here:

    You might also want to search some forums for newer betas:

    Hi, I'm using CCCP codec pack and have no problem converting videos of multiple formats. Only problem is when converting *.mkv files the subtitle is missing in the *.dpg movies.

    FAST6191, do you know what's wrong?

    klite screws stuff up, I messed my codecs up so bad I had to reformat my comp.

    Chances are your subs are soft subs, to get them with your DPG file you will have to hardsub the video.

    First extract the subtitles using mkvextract, part of the mkvtoolnix line:
    http://www.bunkus.org/videotools/mkvtoolnix/
    Virtualdubmod may also be able to help (some newer files may not work):
    http://www.free-codecs.com/download/VirtualDubMod.htm

    BatchDPG has subtitle support inbuilt so it may be easier to use that with your newly extracted file, what follows is the manual method either for to satisfy curiousity or to try and solve a problem if you are using anime with descriptors and resizing causes a problem or syncing becomes an issue (subs are occasionally based in frames not time).

    Then grab a copy of vsfilter for avisynth and install it (batchdpg ships with it if memory serves)
    http://sourceforge.net/project/showfiles.p...ackage_id=84359
    Code:
    TextSub("[drive letter]:\(path)\(name).srt")
    Example for a.srt on f:\subs\
    TextSub("F:\subs\a.srt")
    The .srt may also be .ssa or .ass (it could be a few others but that is not so likely), consult the documentation for things on subtitle placement, font and the like.
