    I am trying to convert a AVI file i downloaded to DVD. I dowloaded the program TMPGEnc 2.5 to help me do this but, when i get to the second wizard window(2/5), to select a file to convert to MPEG, i try open the file in the Video File box and it says the avi file cant not open or unsupported. Any reason why its like this??

    Two possible reasons, actually.

    The first reason is that you miss the proper codec. You should have installed, on your PC, XviD and DivX and youll support most of the AVIs (I never fount an AVI encoded on another language). XviD is completeely free, DivX trial is free and, for decoding purposes, is enough.

    The second reason: on TMPGenc, on Option__Environmental Setting__VFAPI Plug-in, you see the list of the available decoding plugins.
    You should have, at the tpo priority, DirectShow Multimedia File Reader. If it's not enough, raise the priority of the AVI2 (OpenDML) file reader too.

    I don't know it, but I noticed that the proper behaviour is just to stick with the two original codecs. You'll avoid any risk of incompatibility among applications.
