    Hello

    I searched your forums for articles on how to convert a .asf file to something I can use to burn to DVD-R.
    The suggestions were VirtualDub - many thanks! however VirtualDub nolonger converts this type of file. I have tried TMPGenc but It will not work.
    Does anyone have any suggestions? (or can anyone point me to a copy of VirtualDub 1.2 as I have been told that this will convert a .aŽº¹ile!

    Many thanks

    Well First off ASF Files are Usually Low Resolution low Quality Files so encodeing them to High Resolution DVD Files will Not be a Very pretty Picture so you would need to use a different DVD standard that doesn"t entail resizeing the Resolution over 400% and ruining any Image Quality in the Proscess..so you would Need to use the SiF standard which is a Mpeg1/2 file at 352+240/288-Pal resolution which is the resolution of VCD so that is about the best quality you will ever hope to get From Makeing a DVD out of Low resolution ASF/WMV Files which are usually 320+240 and 30fps or 15fps(Hopefully for you 30fps cuz 15fps will be even worse looking) I have Put Quite a few ASF Files on to DVD mostly Porn downloaded off the net and the Quality is not very Good But it can be OK if Done Right...What you will need to do is to Convert the ASF Files to AVI because most Mpeg encoders will not accept ASF Files..You can use a simple Program called "Stoik Video Converter" and you should convert it useing the "HuffYUV Codec" because then there will be no Quality loss going from ASF to AVI ,you should also use it to resize the resolution to 352+240 and the Framerate to 29.976fps...After you have the AVI file you can use an encoder to encode it to Mpeg2 at 352+240 29.976fps with a Audio sample rate of 48000hz, a Video Bitrate of 2000kbs should be good enough for that resolution to get the best quality and a audio Bitrate of between 192kbs and 384kbs should be good enough, after encodeing the Files to Mpeg2 you can use any DVD authoring program to Author the files to DVD useing the SiF DVD Standard ..You should be able to get about 5 hours of Video on a DVD in this DVD format....You can find the software on the net if you do a Google search or if you can"t find it you can message me with your e-mail and ill send it to you....Cheers
