The .avi I am trying to load into TMPGEnc will allow me to laod the audio part but not the video part. TMPGEnc gives error msg. "Cannot be opened or unspported". AVICodec reports this information on the Video "Video : 422 MB, 566 Kbps, 23.976 fps, 640*304 (2.21:1), DIV3 = DivX v3 ;-) MPEG-4 (Low-Motion), Supported" I am a new to all this, but have read extensively and used the guide here to convert .avi to DVD but am getting stuck on this part. Any help is appreciated! Seato.
