Here's the deal. Recently I converted a batch of wmv's into avis and mpegs so that I could burn them onto a DVD so that I can watch them on my DVD player. Unfortunately the quality isn't that good, and when I say "isn't the good" I'm being kind, It's freaking terrible! The picture is crystal clear, or as crystal as I want my clear, but it's the playback that's the main problem. There's jerkiness, there's chopping and there's even stopping. Could someone tell me what the heck is going on, please. Is this a bitrate issue? Is there some magic little piece of software out there that can "repair" video files and make them easy of the eye, as well being easy on the playback?
