I'm new to this and have been reading up on conversions in general and to be honest it all is a bit confusing. To burn a DVD and to be able to view it on most standalones which format is best to use? (good media is a given and DVD + or - are about the same with - a bit more accepted in standalones as it is an older format) It seems the more I read the more confusing it gets. Xvid, DivX, SVCD, MPEG 1/2, M-JPEG, DVD-VCD, DVD-SVCD I've read about em all! So what conversion format is best to burn? I figure DVD - DVD is always best but what about all the ones listed above? There are many conversion guides available but I really don't know what I should be shooting for here? What is best type to have before I burn? Will all of these play on standalones? So far my luck hasn't been the greatest and figure my nic should be changed to coasterman. Thanks for any light u can shed on this!
