Your problem is that you're loading the "C" plugin with LoadPlugin.
For the "C" plugins you need LoadCPlugin

Although I'm not sure why you're using the C varient of ffms2, I've just use the normal version myself.

Yea that's strange. I've never had to do it like that, I either do it the normal way or AvsP will just recognize what I'm trying to load(FFMpegSource) automatically.

You probably want: ffms-2.17.7z

Doublecheck the filename and path of video1.mp4. That error is usually just because you've got a typo or the path wrong. Make sure it's in " ".

Eh... if you just want to hardsub something, you could just use MeGUI's AVS Script Creator in Tools. Just select the input video file and choose File Indexer. Select FFMSIndex and click on Queue, after it's done you should be back on the script creator main window, then on the Filters tab you have the Subtitles field near the bottom. The script creator is crap if you want advanced filtering and so on, but for simply loading and hardsubbing a video, you might as well save yourself the trouble of writing the script.

Audiodub(vid,aud)

Copy and past this over what you have and see if that works.

Thanks guys! I finally did it

The path was really just messed up.

Thanks for the help!

Here's another wave of questions guys!
  • Is ffms2 the best plug-in for reencoding videos for anime episodes?
  • What's the best MeGUI settings for a good quality video in an acceptable file size for a 24-minute long anime episode?
  • Should I use the presets or set it up myself for a better video quality?

First Question:
I wouldn't go as far as best but it certainly is up there. As far as best is concerned, that really would depend on your source if you ask me.

Second Question:
It honestly depends on what you're looking for as far as quality and file size.

Third Question:
I personally recommend sticking with the DXVA anime HD presets.

Last Question. I guess...
  • What's the best(or most used by anime encoders) program for burning anime episodes to dvds which will be played on a DvD Player? and...
  • Is .vob my best bet for the file extension in a DvD?

These are non-trivial questions, so let me answer in a way that's a bit more informative:

"VOB" itself is not a real format. It's a part of the full DVD-specification. You don't simply create VOB files, you have to create the entire DVD-video structure (which also includes files for the menu/track information).

There are two ways that you can playback video from DVDs... One is to create real "video DVDs" that have conform to the video DVD specification. These should be playable on pretty anything that calls itself a DVD Player.

The other option is to simply use a DVD formatted as a data DVD, and copy video files onto it like AVIs, mp4s, etc. In this case, you have to check the specifications of your DVD players carefully. Many recent DVD players/PLaystation 3s/Xboxes etc can play back all kinds of video files. Divx (i.e. xvid) compatibility is quite commonplace. But every device has different specifications, and often certain encoding settings can break playback on certain devices.

So, if you have a particular device you want playback to work on, you can find some encoding settings that work for that device, copy the files onto a DVD, and boom, you're done.
But you won't be guarrenteed that that data DVD will be playable on any other device.
The only truly supported standard is the video DVD standard.

But, there are a lot of disadvantages to the DVD standard.
First, you're limited to using MPEG-2 as the video compression.
Second, you're limited to a resolution of 720x480 (anamorphic to either 4:3 or 16:9) (for NTSC).
Finally, you're limited to a maximum bitrate of around 9000 Kb/s.
In practice you shouldn't compression more than 4 episodes on a single layer DVD unless you want compression artifacts to show up.

The process of creating a video DVD is not that hard and there's plenty of software out there.
Briefly:
1. Setup an Avisynth script that puts the subtitles on the video, does any filtering you want, and finally resizes the video to 720x480.
2. Encode that avisynth script using Henc, making sure to set the aspect ratio to 16:9 for widescreen, and making sure to select 3:2 pulldown if your episode is at 23.976 fps.
3. Encode the audio to AC3 (you can use PCM if you want but it lowers the maximum bitrate for video significantly).
4. Use any of the nice free DVD creation programs out there to mux together the video and audio and create a simple DVD-structure.
5. Burn the DVD structure to a disc and test it out.

I get it now. Thanks

Btw About audio...... What's the most used preset when encoding for anime episodes?

I'd recommend the LC profiles instead of HE unless you have 5.1 sound or want very low bitrates (48Kb/s) myself. Try both and see which one you think sounds better.

AAC has two different profiles (i.e, modes).

LC = Low Complexity
HE = High Efficiency

Briefly, LC mode is designed for ease of playback, where decoding takes little computing resources (good for things like ipods which have limited battery life)
HE mode is designed for maintaining quality at lower bitrates while sacrificing decoding complexity.

To be more specific, HE adds on something extra to the codec called " spectral band replication ", which is the main way it increases perceived quality at lower bandwidths. Basically, it's a way of recreating high frequency data using the low frequency data: It makes things sound more crisp even at low bitrates.
This recreation however is just that, a replica. It doesn't actually recreate the original high-frequency data, and thus can get in the way at higher bitrates and actually make things sound WORSE than LC (in my opinion).

A practical guide is that you should use LC when you want to maximize playback capability, and whenever your bitrates are more than like, 48 Kb/s (per stereo track). If you're doing something like 192 Kb/s 5.1, HE might give you better quality. Or if you're doing a super low bitrate like 48 Kb/s stereo, then HE is the way to go.
But for most anime encoding LC is the correct choice.

There, that's more information than you need .
