View Full Version : DivX and MP3

February 13th, 2005, 20:07
I like to convert everything to DivX, but the sound is in PCM format and I want to convert it to MP3 so it won't take too much space. The problen is that AVI files work with WAV files, so the MP3 encoder I have is really shitty. Any idea on where to get a really good MP3 encoder for WAV files? I don't care if it's shareware or freeware.

I use CDex

OK, thanks. Let's see what it can do...

No man, this is what I don't mean...

I want to encode a WAV file into MP3, but keeping the WAV extension. The encoder that Windows came reaches the 22,050 Hz at 56 kbps and I need to get at least the standard sample format: 44,100 Hz at 128 kbps (48,000 Hz at 360 kbps for DVD sound quality).
Ha! forget what I said above. I just had to add a WAV header into the MP3 files :) Thank you very much.

I don't prefer encoding with MP3 as it lose a lot of quality while making a video. Prefer RMVB instead. :cool:

What the heck is RMVB? :unsure:

Real Media Video codec. It would convert your video file using Real Media Video codec and Real Audio codec. :cool:

OK, I'll try.

I think there are already DVD players with DivX support, aren't they?

Well, most of DVD players already support DivX codec videos. :)

I have downloaded a movie today and I cannot convert it to the format I want:

File: South Park - La pelicula-spanish.avi.
Lenght: 1 hour, 13 minutes, 34 seconds.
Size: 151 MB (158.985.239 bytes).

Audio: Windows Media Audio V8 32 kbps, 32 kHz, stereo.
Video: Windows Media Video V8 704 x 400.

I wish to convert the file to:

Audio: MPEG Layer-3 (MP3).
Video: DivX.

VirtualDub, TMPEncoder and other similar programs won't let me convert them. It says I need a WMV2 thing.

What the heck should I do? :mad:

Fuck realmedia

Pay to view their shit.. ? pffft

¿Realmedia? ¡Que mierda!

Any idea in how to convert it to avi?

You can always use the free version of Real Player.

¡Ni hablar! I'll download the same movie in another format.

Try EO Video (Not free!). I'll use it for some reasons. ;)

Funny though, I'd never heard of WMV codec being used in AVI file? :confused:

RealMedia sucks? No really as I watched a video made in RMVB and it was great as the XviD codecs being used mostly. :cool:

Now I got a problem with DivX. How can I use the DivX encoder at CBR (Constant Bitrate)? I don't like to make mutipasses. It's very annoying :(
