need help converting AVI movies to MP43

posted in Video Codecs

I really need help. I have a upconverting VCR/DVD recorder that can play MPEG-4 movies, but everything I tried doesn’t work. Looking at the manual I noticed that “Playable Codec Format” is MP43. Does anybody know how I can convert movies that I have saved on my computer which are either AVI or MP4 (for PSP) to this MP43? I really need help..... reply

Goddamn spammers! I deleted a few of their posts...
This is kind of late, but better late than never.

Use VirtualDub: it’s FREE and open source.

And for MP43 get this patch: (old version of Microsoft’s MPEG-4 codecs that allow encoding in MP43 in AVI)

When you open your video file in VirtualDub, click video, compression, and pick “Microsoft MPEG-4 Video codec V3”. Tweak any settings you want by clicking on configure. Then click file, save as avi.

If you need plugins for VirtualDub, you can get some here
or google for more.

P.S: If when opening in VirtualDub you get a VBR audio warning, use NanDub instead. Very similar to VirtualDub, also freeware, but supports VBR audio. reply
