hello, i'm really new here. actually, just joined a minute ago, so much thx to those helping me later. i just want to ask, is there a program to encode mpeg 1 files before burning them onto nero. it takes WAYY to long to ENCODE!! by the time i encoded 55%..i've already converted 2 rvmb files to mpeg 1 already. i read some threads that talked about nero being really slow and taking soo long and taking DAYS just to encode a file to DVD.. but in my case, it's VCD. so does anyone know a program that can ENCODE the file and then i dont need to encode it when i start the AHEAD NERO burning? a program that's faster than..DAYS..? or.. 6 hours lol. thx for help!!!
