Hey...I tried converting an avi file to mpg file using TMPGEnc so i can make a vcd..i think I was on the right track...but when the file started converting...It seemed to take forever...I waited like 10 mins and it wasn't even at 1% done. Does it really take that long to convert? It seemed like it was doing the movie frame by frame and at a very slow rate. If thats the case...its just not worth it then. Plus I have two avi files so the movie is cut in half already. Would I have to convert each avi file separtly?
