I am trying to burn an XVID avi file on a VCD. So, I am attempting to
use TMPGEnc to translate the avi into an MPG.

So I open the AVI in TMPGEnc and...

I choose my start and end times and "cut except currently selected
area", so I end up with just a small part of the video file, for
testing, and then click OK and then Next and then I am on the final
window where it says "specify output file name" and I click on Ok and
that says "Doesn't exist -do you want to create?" and I say OK... All
is okay up to that point...

THAT'S WHEN I GET THIS ERROR MESSAGE:
"Can't load P3Package.dll".

What is this .dll and how do I remedy this situation?

That's probably a DLL needed by Xvid. I cannot tell you, as Xvid only
gave me all sort of problems (The very installation process of version
1.0 crashes, can you believe it?). May be if you can find that DLL
somewhere in your PC or in the Internet, and put it in the System
directory... But anyway: many have found Xvid to be incompatible with
Tmpgenc.

I can conceive an easy solution, though. Load the clip via Avisynth.

AviSource("AnXvidClip.avi")

If Tmpgenc complains it doesn't know what an .avs is, do the menu
"Option | Environmental setting | VFAPI plugin", and give a higher
priority to "AVI VFW compatibility reader".

I am new to all this, and I have no idea what the above means. Okay,
I've got some idea, but not enough...
Avisynth is yet another program. Is it free?
Let's say I download it - so then how exactly do I use it with
TmpgEnc?
You're saying I load the AVI clip into Avisynth? and then use the
resulting (?) file for the audio? or ?

If TMPGEnc says Can't load P3Package.dll or P4Package.dll?

Be sure that you have exctracted all files in the tmpgenc download zip
file to a folder then go to that folder and start tmpgenc.exe or make a
shortcut to tmpgenc.exe and it should work. Or try copy the
p3package.dll and p4package.dll to your windows\system32 folder and
restart TMPGEnc.

Thank you very much.
I had found it after I posted this, and forgot to come back and post
it. Sorry about that. But it's now here for the next person who does a
search on it.

Looks like you have already solved your problem. But knowing about
Avisynth won't hurt you, as it is a very useful tool, and it's free.

The way to use Avisynth is writing scripts, as a text file, usually
with the .avs extension. With this scripts you can process the video
in many a way, like changing the framerate, resizing... It can be
complicated to do all the things it is capable of, but the essentials
are very simple. Write a script (a text file) containing

AviSource("c:\ThePath\TheClip.avi")

then open it with MediaPlayer. You'll see it's TheClip that plays. You
would also be able to open that text file into Tmpgenc, and it would
process TheClip. Or say it's a Windows media video file:

DirectShowSource("c:\ThePath\TheClip.wmv")

You are now able to load this script into an editor such as
VirtualDub, and work on it as if it were an Avi file. Or you can open
the script in Tmpgenc, and encode it, just as if it were an Avi.
