Hi there, Hope some of you guys can help me I've just downloaded a movie which is a DVD RIP of 1.36GB in size and has the file extension/format of 'Moviename'.xl.3ivx.mov this file plays in quicktime with the .3ivx codec installed and is complete with DVD Chapters. The format of the movie is 16:9 Widescreen with a resolution of 1038 x 416 and contained within the files is the DVD chapters.
I want to simply burn this one .xl.3ivx.mov file into DVD Format to play on a standard DVD player complete with the original chapters and quality.
However I canno't transcode it into DVD format or indeed any other format which a program like Nero Vision Express can transcode it into a final DVD. All I know is that Nero Vision Express simply either refuses to accept the format in the first place, or on some occasions does accept the format, for some reason, but just before the transcoding process will warn that this format may produce unstable results and then whilst in the transcoding process will lock up momenterialy and say that it encountered an error.
I have tried transcoding the .xl.3ivx.mov file into recognisable formats using these tools:
ImTOO MOV Converter
Digital Media Converter 2.4
Cinema Craft Encoder SP
Roxio Easy Media Creator
But Roxio simply refused the file in the first place, meanwhile DVD Santa even with the highest quality 16:9 widescreen settings did complete the transcoding sucessfully but managed to reduce the quality into somthing you would have to watch on a 3" portable TV and cut off half the movie width! Finally the rest of the above programs simply started the transcoding but all get stuck at various different stages in the process either freezing the computer or generating an error message.
I now this is not an error with the file because it plays perfectly in Quicktime at amazing quality all I want to do is burn it to a disk to play on a DVD Player and for the movie to contain chapters. Is this too much to ask?
Anyway there must be a way because the majority of DVD Rips are in this stupid format! And people must burn them to DVD.
So please can someone tell me how to burn/transcode this movie as I have been working in trying to do this for four solid days now!
Thanks in advance for any help/guidance you can offer me.
