hi, is it possible to convert avi to mpg without using TMPGEnc? i have tmpgenc installed but it crashes every time i try to encode to mpg. i've tried uninstalling and then re-installing it but the results are always the same. is there any other application which will convert avi to mpg so that i can burn it to VCD?? for most movies i use nero for the whole process but it has an annoying habit of making a VCD with an upside down picture!! so, any help with this matter would be greatly appreciated i've read a few other postings but haven't been able to find a solution to my anoying problem. wasting CDs (and thus money) is NO fun at all!!
