Toast and M.Pack: Only getting video... : LUSENET : Video CD : One Thread

OK, what the heck am I doing wrong? I run MPEGs through M.Pack to get them Toast-ready, and when I put them in my player, I get no audio! Anyone have any idea why, or how to fix this?

M.Pack will not encode audio from an MPEG file. Use a audio extractor like SOUND MACHINE and then use a video editing program like VIDEO STUDIO and put the video and sound together.

The file when finished has to be a *.mov. Then use M.Pack to encode to MPEG with Toast-Ready.

Sorry for the bad news

I've been experimenting with VCDGear, and it seems to work pretty well. I have done MPG->MPG, BIN->MPG, and it seems to run through. It also has a 'Toast-Compatible' option, and Toast has been accepting the mpegs fine. I haven't gone all the way and burned one, but if Toast is accepting them it should work.

The premier tools for making VCDs is only available on the Mac.

QUERY software has been around since 1995 in Japan and is now English too.

if any of you can wait about 2-3 months, toast 5.0, titanium, or something, they had it at sf macworld. will burn vcd's from within itself. anything that's an mpeg 1 file already or copy a disc, or pretty "anything that will play in quicktime" according to the rep there will work. also if any of you know hotline, there's a toast 5.0.2 beta floating around that works pretty damn good for now too.
