Xvid, avi2(opendml) and tmpgenc weirdness

Hello all,
I have an avi file @ 23.976 fps, running time 59 minutes.
Virtualdub gives the frame count as 85448.

I noticed that if I enable avi2(opendml) in tmpgenc
and encode this file, the tmpgenc frame summary in the top
right corner says xx/257257 and the estimated encode time
is 4 hours 30 minues.

However, if I disable avi2-opendml, the frame count summary
in the top right correctly says xx/85448 and the time estimate
is 1 hour 30 minutes.

I've seen this phenomenon with many files encoded with Xvid.

Is tmpgenc getting confused, or is there something about
xvid/opendml?

Thanks,
Dave

I had the problem, and I believe I solved it by installing different
XVid codec. Not 100% sure here, because I did quite a lot of messing
about.

Strange thing is, other apps would get the frame count correct, so
what I used to do was to run AVIExaminer to get the correct frame
count, then input this into tmpgenc (Settings->Source range). A pain
in the butt, but it worked.

I suggest trying another XVid codec.

I went back and checked - the application is actually called YAAI - get it here:
