View Full Version : Accelerated Audio on MPG->WAV

06-12-2002, 01:02 PM
I have searched the forum and couldn't find a similar post, so...

I have a MPG file that is 2 minutes, 33.487 seconds long, using Layer-2 compression on 44.1KHz stereo audio. When I convert it to WAV (also 44.1KHz stereo), it comes out 1 minute, 53.476 seconds long. All of the audio is there, but it is sped up (almost exactly 4:3). The original MPG file plays fine in Media Player, Goldwave, etc., and Goldwave converts it fine. But I would really, really rather do this in the future with dbPowerAmp.

Anybody got any ideas? If any of the moderators would like to see the file, I can upload it.

Thanks all for any help in this matter.

It is the mpg decoder I am using, not so great for films. Visit codec central and install the mp3PRO codec, it should help (besure to follow the installation instructions to the letter)

Thanks, Spoon! I will give that a shot asap.

Does the MP3PRO thing require WinAMP to run? I don't have WinAMP installed (and don't want to install it, if I can avoid it), and so I had to trick the MP3PRO installer into giving me the DLL. Once I got the DLL, I put it in the dBpowerAMP directory and deleted MP3.dll as the instructions described. I then attempted to use dMC, and it crashed with an access violation every time I tried to convert an MPG file. I think I followed the instructions to a T, did I miss something? Or does it actually require WinAMP to run?

Thank you so much for your help!

I think you put it in the wrong directory (move it to the folder listed below) - install the mp3PRO driver from codec central, then put the winamp DLL into the folder it has created - dbpoweramp\multiplayer\input\mp3pro

I think I got that part right. Here is my dir structure:

................Place Winamp in_mp3PRO DLL in This Folder.txt

The original MP3.dll has been deleted, and the in_mp3PRO.dll has been placed in the appropriate directory. Did I miss something that I was supposed to do? Any other ideas?

Yes that looks right, if you run the dMC Configuration program, does it list the mp3PRO input codec, or does it crash also?

dMC Configuration runs fine, and lists the "mp3PRO Input Decoder" along with a long string of mpg-related file extensions.

Thanks for the continuing assistance!

BTW - I can be reached at kgriggs@fast-talk.nospam.com or as 'FizpaWiz' on AIM if you'd prefer a higher-bandwidth conversation.

Spoon? You still there? I am still looking for a way to resolve my crashing problem with mp3PRO. Any ideas?

BTW, I know it is obvious, but remember to remove the "nospam" from the e-mail address in my previous post if you'd like to contact me directly.

Thank you!

I am out of ideas, are you able to try it on another machine?
