    it depends on what you try to play it on on another computer like in some other computers u have to go onto the vcd disc and actually play the avseq01.at file in the mpegav folder because it wont just load the cd like other players!

    dela, since you took the time to go into great detail about the avi to cd, what all do i need to put movies on a vcr tape? i belong to a movie site that charges 19.00 dollars a month for movies. i have them on my computer, i would like to show them on my tv and record them in my vcr. i need a video out card(tv out). what else do i need. seeing as how i pay for these movies i am not stealing them. thanks

    dela, i forgot. i tried to use virtual dub and it said it could not open the movie file. said it was restricted, locked or unsupported. the movie is fine, i have watched it on my cpu. i went to the site you suggested and all i got was a chat room, no download. thanks oh yeah, it says microsoft owns the software or code and prevents third party usage.

    the pay site is called the movie biz. it comes with dvd-copy-to-one. the movie that virtual dub can't open comes from kazza lite. how do i get tmd codecs, the link on this site goes to a chat room, no download. thanks

    dela, it is not the movie, it is virtual dub, it is owned by microsoft and no longer works on third party files.

    I think you misunderstand maddogg. Its not virtualdub thats owned by microsoft, its probably the codec that was used to encode the movie.

    Well Im not sure, what codecs do you use to watch the movie? Use Gspot to find out.

    What kind of movie is it? What type of media file is it: avi, mpg, wmv?

    i have gspot, it tells me that windows media can play the movies, i don't want to play them, i want to put them on a cd. i have a stupid question. how do you install the different codecs? do you just install them on the computer or drag and drop them into the movies? i found a site with all the codecs, i am not sure how to use them. new at this. thanks

    Most codecs have installers so save them to your drive and install from there.

    stupid question of the week, can you use a dvd disc instead of a cdr disc? does the cd rom know the difference? i made a movie on the cdr from the internet. i made a vcd, it plays on my dvd but not on my daughters. a man down the road makes movies and her dvd will play them. any ideas as to what he is doing? thanks

    No cd-roms cant read dvds. Im guessing that the laser thats used to read cds isnt calibrated to work on dvds.
