    hi all,

    Anyone else have problems playing S-VCD encoded MPEG files on their PC?

    I'v always had problems and its getting on my nerves now!

    I have tried copying the MPEG file onto my PC, but they still can't be read. I'v tried Media Player, WinDVD, PowerDVD, TMPEG, but nothing can see it!

    Any ideas GREATLY appreciated!!!!

    Cheers,

    Paul.

    PowerDVD Xp and WinDVD both read SVCD's fine on my PC. They won't auto-open with those programs though. You have to run PowerDVD first and then open the MPEG2 file from the PowerDVD open file command.

    Thanks!! I selected File Mode on the PowerDVD and its opened the file up with no problems.

    I guess I was just been a buffoon.

    Thanks very much!! Stress levels sinking back to normal level.... ;)

    Cheers!

    Paul.
