"Great tool for converting to svcd"

July 21, 2006  |  By ganbu

 |  Version: DIKO Free 2.26

Pros

If you're like me and don't have a dvd burner, but your standalone dvd player can handle svcd format, then you need DIKO if you intend to burn your own films or tv shows to disc. It also can be used for making DVDs although I've obviously not used that feature.

This does the job very well. It consists of a series of freeware programs all working together in the background to produce a .cue & .bin file from an .avi movie which you can burn onto a cd-r or cd-rw and play in your regular dvd player if it supports svcd format (check its specs for that)

Highly configurable, you can adjust settings for widescreen, change between different framerates to adjust for PAL/NTSC (European/North American), do just about anything you need to do to produce a functioning video compact disc.

Great support at their forum and lots of guides and tutorials are also available at sites like videohelp.

There aren't many programs out there that convert to (s)vcd for free... I tried one other and DIKO was by far the better one for me.

Cons

The freeware version is only able to work with 'standard' framerates such as 23.976, 25.00, 29.970 fps. If your .avi is off by even a fraction (I had a few downloaded episodes of a tv show which were encoded at 23.969 fps, something else at 29.971...), then DIKO free won't handle it - you're told you need to buy DIKO Gold for 'nonstandard framerates'. It's not a flaw, just a limitation which I can't really blame the author for.

I would like to give this 4.5 stars but can't do that - it's definitely better than a '4' IMHO so I've given it '5'.
