hello all, this is my first post. im new to moonshell and the R4, so i'm hoping someone here can help me out with my problem... basically im trying to convert .flv files to .dpg using batchDPG for play on my R4. i've read some of the tutorials available on this site already, but i still cant seem to get the videos to work. Here's what im running if it will help determine a fix: R4 DS w/ latest firmware moonshell (up to date) latest version of batchDPG/ with AVIsynth installed k-lite codec pack full ver. (installed this because ffdshow didn't work) Windows Vista (cry...) before when all i had was ffdshow installed batchDPG wouldn't even encode my file. now with k-lite installed it actually does convert to .dpg. the problem is this error i keep getting saying that mencoder.exe stopped working. could this be because of Vista, my codec settings, or something simple i missed? Please bear in mind, im a complete newbie at this stuff, so any help that can be offered is much appreciated. Thanks in advance. Edit: oh...and when i put the .dpg on my flash card despite the mencoder error my R4 locks up after trying to play it. I tried playing some preconverted .dpg files and they work fine.
