    I've been reading these forums for a long time and finally decided to register. Great info and helpful people is what makes a forum like this so cool.

    Lately i've had problems with indentifying video file formats. I use Winamp and it does a pretty good job of playing video files, but is there a way to tell the exact file format of a file i'm watching in Winamp? The reason i'm asking this is because i've tried converting a certain file to dvd about 5 times and each time the conversion aborts at 50% or the audio track ends up missing. If i knew exactly what format the source was, i could probably convert it successfully and burn it. Since most of my video files are associated with Winamp it just says "winamp media file, or wmv i believe it is.
