    I have mpegs (svcd & vcds) that play on my dvd player when I burn them onto CD-R, but when I try and wack the same mpegs onto a DVD-R my DVD player says unknown disk.

    Some1 lent me a DVD-R DVD copied movie and that played fine. Im confused!

    Any help would go down a treat!

    Do a search on AVI to VOB & you will undoubtedly find your answer ;)

    It's all to do with encoding whatever file to MPEG2 (which is DVD compliant) & then converting to VOB/BUP/IFO files for burning in a VIDEO_TS folder

    hi laurie85
    depending on your system,yes it can take that long, or longer,using TMPGEnc.Mainconcepts encoder is a lot faster but costs alot more.These are the two i use but im sure there are more out there,maybe faster and less costly.

    good luck

    MainConcept is worth getting IMHO as it is 3 times as qucik as most other encoders , and thats without any loss of Video quality !! :D
    Plus using this encoding method you do NOT have to re-mux seperate video & audio streams ... which can often result in out of sync audio

    (I use MainConcept & highly recommend it)

    Thx guys, I have a dream that one day you can just burn and play....one day.

    Would it be easier/quicker to cut the mpegs to 700mb and put them on CD-Rs?

    Do you know of any programs that could do this? Thx again.
