    This will produce an mpeg video with mp2 audio.

    If the Xvid file has the audio encoded as an mp3, which they often are, you can use this line:
    Code:
    ffmpeg -i "input file name here" -target ntsc-svcd -acodec copy "output file name here"
    Cheers for that... I'm just a bit averse to command lines I guess....

    GUI4FFMPEG is the cat's PJ's for me. Mine seems to have that -acodec in the generated command line (this is from x264 to MPEG2/MP2)

    Code:
     
    "C:\Documents and Settings\Kristian\Desktop\gui4ffmpeg\ffmpeg.exe" -i "E:\GBPVRVids\RugbyUnionNZvsEng061106\RugbyUnionNZvsEng061106.mp4" -target pal-dvd -b 6000 -aspect 4:3 -s 720x400 -padtop 88 -padbottom 88 -acodec mp2 -ab 224 -ac 2 -mbd 2 -sameq -async 1 -y "E:\GBPVRVids\RugbyUnionNZvsEng061106\RugbyUnionNZvsEng061106_CelticDruid.mpg"

    I use celtic druids latest (updated celtic_druid ffmpeg builds are available from http://ffdshow.faireal.net/mirror/ffmpeg/ .. You MUST use Firefox or anotehr Browser, IE7 is banned) as the one with GUI4FFMPEG couldn't "do" H264 without crashing. Mr GUI4FFMPEG recommended using it with "-sameq" replacing the autogenerated "-qmin 2".

    I added the directory it is in to my windows PATH environment variable, so that I can run it from a command line in any folder.
    Yeah, I just use MS's neat little "Open Command Window Here" powertool that adds a right click command line to a folder. Always makes me laugh WinXP shelling out to a DOS window... the irony :-).

    If you've ever become frustrated because something in GBPVR or NPVR is not working, take a moment and consider this and this and this and this and this and this. Credit where credit's due; for one guy (with a wife and two kids), most problems are solved outrageously quickly. Patience.

    I guess that would be in your case: -acodec mp2.
    If you would change that in: -acodec copy it should keep the mp3 audio.
