Can someone please help me? I'm at my end. I have several movies that dl in Xvid. I have several conversion programs - Virtual Dub, Tmpenc and several authoring programs - Nero (the latest) Nerovision, Magix Movies to DVD and Instant VOB. I can't seem to burn a DVD that will play in any of my stand alone DVD players or on my Power DVD on the computer for that matter (they will play in WP). The Magix program just crashes anytime I try to do anything.
Could someone please give me a step by step guide (please don't send me to dvdrhelp.com - been there/done that) on how to convert and burn so that I can watch these movies? My burner is a DVD-RW/CD-RW (Pioneer). I am trying to burn onto DVD-R 4.7 GB disks. My stand alones are a JVC and a Toshiba. Both support DVD-R, etc. The JVC will also play SVCD and MP3. I would be eternally grateful to anyone who could help.
Note: I did try to follow some of the tips on other posts and dvdrhelp.com. I was able to convert via Virtual Dub and Tmpenc. The resulting video looked good on WP. However, to burn on Nero or Instant Vob you need files of the typeBup, ifo, or vob. I couldn't figure out how to get those file types from Tmpenc. When I tried to burn with the .mpg file type it was unplayable.
