Thread: Hi! I Have A Stupid Newbie Question..

  1. #1
    i just downloaded a movie & want to transfer it to cd-r, on the computer is a cd burner but no dvd burner. what do i need to do next? if i get nero, will it convert the movie & burn it to cd-r ? is it a user friendly program?
    does anyone have another program they prefer?

    thanks in advance

    Nero is the best, and it's easy to use.

    will it convert the movie
    Do You want to burn the movie as a SVCD? Yes Nero can do that.
    Or You could just burn the movie as a data cd.

    Do You have a DVD player that can play SVCD?
    Where do You want to watch the movies? On Your computer?

    Then You should burn it as a SVCD (Super Video CD) or Video CD.

    Careful, if it's a divx movie it might not work and converting from avi to mpeg(vcd format) takes time unless u have a very fast comp.

    heres what i understood about downloading movies, (im a noob yep)

    1. download (its not duh, its were it all starts&#33

    2. the file, just take it to nero and choose vcd or svcd. (btw whats the diference between these 2? and my dvd player i dont think it reads any cd-r, but it reads dvd-r, wtf is going on here? also on the dvd screen thingy, u can slightly see how there are displays for mp3, vcd, and dvd. But i never use other than dvd originals and some burned. ussualy rentals.)

    3. wait for the file to be burned.

    oh yeah what if the file is .avi? and i got another problem. there are some other movie formats like asf and shit. i got a movie of those and it plays and u cant forward! and tehres this really long comercial part and i want to forward, ive never really been patient enough to get it seen!!!

    i suppose, burn in lowest speed, i dont want any stupid buffer underruns, shit ive lost like 1000 cd's in that stuff.

    and should i use a reg. cd-r or do i got to buy a special cd for video or such.

    I don't know if any one program will do all that.
    but you could use TMPeng or M2EDIT Pro to cut the movie in half.
    i use nero to burn but there tons program that will do what you want.

    Superdude

    If the file is a different format other than MPEG-1(VCD) or MPEG-2(SVCD) u can get you need a program that converts the file format.
