I have a bunch of episodes of a tv show which are in .avi and mpeg format. I want to make DVDs out of them which will play on a standard DVD player. I tried using Winavi to convert the files to DVD files but that did not work. I wound up with a disc that had menus and everything but would lock up after playing exactly 1 second of each title.
I decided to just try dropping the files into a Nero Vision Express 3.x.x project and that worked! The only thing that sucked was the time it took - almost 3 hours to transcode 5 30-minute episodes. The actual burning time was normal - I used an 8X TY02 and a BenQ 1620 to burn. The disc came out fine but WOW - nearly 3 hours to transcode the files???
Is this normal? If it is then fine but if there’s anything I can do to speed up the time, I’d love to know. Thx!
