I want to take my recored tv and burn it to a DVD that will be playable on my other DVD players, not just my computer. I was told to try TMPGEnc to convert from avi to mpeg. I have not been able to get this to work. When I open my video file to convert TMPGEnc Plus 2.5 stops and gives me an error TMPGEnc has encountered a problem and needs to close. I have reinstalled TMPGEnc and I still have the problem. Is there any other program that will do what I want to or is there some problem I am missing? I am running Windows Media Center and have been told that there is no way to convert these files so they will be able to play on other DVD player, I don't believe this but still having trouble with the whole process!!!
