problem with some *.avi files

Postby michu_master » Sun Mar 05, 2006 3:42 pm

Hi! I have problem with Avisub - I click 'generate subbed avi' and then program process subtitles and when it comes to dealing with the avi it stops, I receive message 'all done etc.' but in fact nothing is done because it hasn't even started doing anything ;)

In the same time Avisub works well with some avi files so the problem must be in codecs or something else used in avis

Could anyone tell me which avi files Avisub does not support?

I use Windows XP SP2

I want to add that the combination of programs: srt2bmp + bmp2xsub + fuse crashes on the same avi files...

that's happens because the divxmux made by divx.com cannot support all kind of files .... :roll:

It happens with 3ivx and divx3 files
for divx3 there is a workaround:
change the fourcc of the file (you have a fourcc changer bundeled with xvid) to DIVX, proceed the file with avisub and then in the output file change it back to the value it was before (DIV3 or DIV4)

robert7 is perfectly right !


Mini guide :

1. first COPY the movie to somewhere else
2. download xvid from http://nic.dnsalias.com and install it
3. run the C:\Program Files\XviD\avic.exe program
4.run the program, open up the COPIED movie file
under FourCC Description code: SELECT DIV3
under FourCC Used Codec: SELECT DIVX
then click ?Apply?
5.then process it with avisub

What about XVID files? I tried avisub with an XVID file (Lost episode).
Subtitles were created and then when it tried to create the avi , progress bar went up to to tiles and it stopped claiming it had created the file.

What it had created was a ~40 MB corrupt avi...

Tried avic.exe, nothing changed.
So are XVID doomed to failure?

P.S. Great work you have done here !!!

First thing I tried...Didn't do anything...

What I noticed about the files that couldn't be processed is that they all had "Audio sample size 16 bit" in their properties...

Other XVid files worked just fine.

Any ideas?

how about resampling the audio then ?
As author of the avisub i cannot do much because the problem is on divxmux made by divx.com .
Try demuxing the audio with virtualdub and then change the sample size

Use DMFCHECK to check the avi files that are not worked with AviSub, I found a message that saying "MPEG Quantization not Supported". All xvid avi files with MPEG Quantization I have cannot work with AviSub. So that is the reason. Now I want to know whether I can convert it to H.264 Quantization without re-encoding the file?
