I'm hoping someone can help me with the problem I'm having. I've tried TMPGEnc Plus as well as XVideoConverter, Nero and Video Edit Magic 3 but and can't get these asf and wmv files to convert (mpeg-1) so that I can make a VCD. With TMPGenc, when I try to convert them, it gets an error and closes. With XVideoConverter, Nero and Video Edit Magic 3, it will get so far along converting and then freeze up. Is this a problem with the files or is there something else I can do to make them work? I can watch them just fine with Windows media player as well as burn them on a data cd and then view them fine. I've looked at all the info here that I could find before asking for help but can't seem to find anything that answers it. Thanks in advance to any and everyone that can offer any help. I've been trying to get this to work for almost two weeks and I'm about at the end of my rope.
