i am trying to convert a .AVI(xvid) file that is 1hr and 55mins long to mpeg2 so i can burn it to dvdr. when i get to the page where i can adjust the bitrate so the file will fit on the 4.7G disk it tells me the file is to large. i got an error that said: the movie is to long to output the file cannot exceed 3hrs(180min) if audio format is linear PCM.(the file is only 1.55hr.) what have i done wrong? i have had this problem before and cant figure it out. the audio is mpeg 3(mp3). thanks in advance. i am really frustrated with this crap. if i dont reply to any messages today i will tommorow.
