Righto, first off please help if you have any idea on what I can do.
- Used cucusoft to convert avi files into mpeg2
- Loaded the mpeg2 video file into tmpgenc dvdauthor and added menus
- Burnt to dvd
This method was fine but I wanted a change as I was annoyed with dvdauthor having to accept so strict file types and it was annoying converting.
I downloaded tmpgenc converter as this is the sister to dvdauthor, so i thought it would be simpler and easier. BUT whenever I open tmpgenc and try and convert a AVI file, it doesn't work. AVI files are supported, but I have tried different files from different sources and AVI just do not work, everything else does.
I don't mind paying, so what is the EASIEST combo of programs so that I can get an AVI file, add menus and stick it onto a dvd???????
I also have a further problem as now AVI files will not play on my computer unless I use VLC media player, windows media player, quicktime and realplayer give me an error, encountered a problem had to close. My original conversion software will now not work either.
I tried the tmpgenc program on a different computer and it doesn't work on there either.
Can anyone give me some help?
EDIT: For some reason dvdauthor only allows this setting: 25fps, 352x288, mpeg2...so my conversion program needs to be able to do do this. Cucusoft is the only one so far which I have seen, which is why I thought it would be much easier to use the same companies programs for the encoding then to dvd authoring
