    Hello everyone. I would appreciate your help. I am trying to convert my home vhs tapes to dvd. Now the first thing i did was convert all my video into what I thought would be the correct format for burning to dvd. I used mpeg2, 24bit, 640x480,29.97fps, 5000kbps video with mpeg2 audio, 48KHz, 15bit, stereo, 224kbps. I used 640x480 because that is what I thought the tapes were. Anyway, when im using dvd moviemaker 3, it re-encodes all the video to 720 x 480 im guessing because I dont think my origonal resolution was dvd compliant. So whats my best bet here. I need to get these onto dvd, but it looks like my origonally encoded video won't work. If it needs to be re-encoded, is there a utility that can re-encode all my video at once? Thank you very much for your help. Obviously im new to this whole thing.
