    Get TMPGEnc and the VFAPI Quicktime plug-in. They're both free.

    All I found at that URL was a search engine, I entered VFAPI as the search term and got lists of articles about VFAPI but nothing about Quick Time and no download links as far as I can tell.
    For someone who thinks he knows about it you have not been helpful, newbies like me need a full URL link to a place where the necessary software can be downloaded rather than being told to search somewhere without really knowing what to search for.

    Hey Guys,

    anyone interested in a solution???

    This topic (or something very similar) was raised in a previous thread, WITHOUT RESOLUTION, it seems:
    http://forums.afterdawn.com/message_reply.cfm?thread_id=43219&forum_id=40

    This is ONE way of doing it:

    WARNING: TAKES TIME AND DISK SPACE (temporarily)

    1 - QuickTime 6.x NEEDS to be installed (default installation)
    2 - install any codecs you might want to use
    3 - Install Bink from Rad Game Tools:
    http://www.radgametools.com/default.htm
    4 - Run Rad Video Tools
    5 - Browse to and Highlight the file you want to convert
    6 - click Convert A File
    7 - leave the default output
    8 - make sure Convert Video AND convert audio are TICKED, everything else cleared
    9 - click Convert
    10 - choose the compressor you want to use (I always use Full frames, HUGE files but best quality)
    11 - configure codec if you wish
    12 - click OK
    13 - wait while it processes, click Done.

    You now have a file of the type you chose.

    I Usually at this point feed the file into TMPGEnc to create a DVD-Compliant MPEG 2.

    It works for me.

    Have Fun..
