i have dl'ed Chicago MPEG Layer3, it is to big to write to cd, is there a program which can convert this type of file?

Are you sure it's MPEG layer 3 ? Because that's MP3, which is just audio.

I think you mean MPEG layer 2, which is also known as SVCD.

If the file is 800 MB or smaller, then you can burn it on a normal 80 minute CD-R (700 MB data).
Make sure you burn it in SVCD format, otherwise it won't fit.

if its an mpeg and its to large to fit on disk convert it to divx4 or xvid
using flaskmpeg if it's not an mpeg you will have to use TMPGEnc to convert it to vcd
or svcd i personally would choose vcd, smaller file.

Depends if you want make a VCD or just save it to disk. If you plan on watching the movie on a DVD player, then make the SVCD. If you just want to save it on a CD, then convert it to divx and burn it.
