Problem converting a file after I've captured it

Discussion in 'Amateur Video Production' started by electric_chaos, Aug 5, 2006.

  1. Okay I've got a weird problem. When I capture something to
    uncompressed AVI using virtual dub 1.6.6 and try to convert it into an
    MPEG2 file in TMPGenc I get a read error dialog box. ex:
    "read error occurred at address 00012F0 of module 'TMPGenc.exe with
    20655748 "

    I've tried changing the priorities in Environmental Setting - VFAPI
    plugin. I changed directshow filter to the highest. Other than this ,
    does anyone have any comments at all as to what can be causing this ? I
    even tried using uncompressed AVI mode and also MPEG2 mode with ATI's
    software and I got the same results. Could it be maybe the video drivers
    or something ? I can't rememeber the error ever happening when I used
    MPeg 2 recording.

    ATI All in Wonder 128 Pro/ P4 1.5 GHZ/ 512 MB/ 80 Gig HDD

    Cheers,

    jason

    I recall receiving similar messages when I was very low on disk space.
    Check the free space of both the target drive and whatever drive tmpgenc
    uses for its temporary files. Uncompressed AVI eats hard drive real estate.
    Particularly if you're doing 2-pass VBR, you'll need quite a bit of extra
    room.

    Have you tried reinstalling TMPGEnc 2.5 ? Do you have the
    Plus version or are you using the free version? If it is the free
    version, and you are past the trial period, what are you using
    for MPEG2 support? (you may have to reinstall that as well)

    Luck;

  4. Well okay that's an idea. Maybe I'll need a registered version. I
    got this version probably illegally, I know, but if I had to pay for
    everything I used on this computer I'd owe $$ .
    AS for my Mpeg codecs - I think that's what you were meaning, they
    are probably installed by the intervideo WinDVD software. Shouldn't
    they be okay ?
    My hard drive has enough room left though to do what I'm looking
    for. I know this type of AVI file will eat hard drive space.

    There are plenty of free Encoders/converters. If you want
    to use a particular product buy it, otherwise use those offered
    for free.
