TINRA worked perfectly for me... you did reencode the file it produced after running it through the stabiliser right? I ask, because TINRA's output is PCM audio rather than MP3, and you have to re encode the audio with VirtualDUB before adding to disk.

EO Video *should* be able to encode directly into the correct video and audio settings, but personally I found I got a better conversion using TINRA than EO Video, even if EO Video is much easier to use.

Maybe it's time for a RealVideo -> DCDivX-compatible-AVI guide..
