    i'm converting some mpeg video to xvid using virtualdbu, what's the
    best audio codec to use and where can i find it.
    the other question is that i noticed that with virtualdub i have to do
    the 2 pass thing manually, is there a software that'll do it
    automatically

    *question mark doesn't work on my keyboard, thanks*

    MP3 is the most common audio format for DivX/XviD.
    Try the Lame ACM codec or the Radium MP3 codec.

    You can configure virtualdub to do both passes without user intervention
    in between. Read this: http://www.doom9.org/xvid-vdub.htm
    Or try GordianKnot: http://www.doom9.org/gknot-main4.htm

    Best for what purpose?
    Which two pass thing? I have scripts (written in Perl) which generate
    VirtualDub scripts to do 6 passes without further user intervention.
    (it does some filtering then generates several products, e.g. audio
    WAV, low resolution xvid encoded video-only AVI, SIF resolution AVI
    (for later encoding to VideoCD), etc...)

    Um... well, its pretty hacky. I can't imagine you'd want the exact
    steps I'm using. What you'll want to do is do what I did. Do all
    the steps, saving each step as a job, then grab the virtualdub.jobs
    file and turn it into a template (primarily for the filenames in my
    and probably most cases). Then your script fills in the template
    with the real filename, copies the result to the virtualdub.jobs
    file, then fires up virtualdub using the command line parameters to
    execute the pending jobs.

    Tools you'll need: the document on the Scylla language (on the
    virtualdub web site), the in virtualdub help file (for virtualdub
    command line parameters), and some scripting language to do the
    above.

    If you don't know enough about scripting to do the above, my
    script probably won't help you since it will probably need
    extensive modification for you, and if you do, then you have
    enough information to do it yourself.

    The best audio to use is uncompressed WAV. Would I encourage anyone to use
    it? Only if I thought the person was a masochist.
