I have a problem that I have been completely unsuccessful in solving. I have a 14.3 Gig MPG I want to convert to DVD. I originally thought I would use something like WinAVI to convert it to DVD format saved on my hard drive and then use DVD Shrink to compress it as necessary and make a DVD. This seemed simple enough but WinAVI (an otherwise excellent program) will currently not handle files larger than 4 Gig. Everything else I tried (Pinnacle Studio, Ulead DVD Movie Factorry, etc.) either refuses to convert it because it is “too big” for a DVD or crashes after it converts 10 gig or so. The limitation is not my computer because I have plenty of horsepower and 1 Gig of memory.
How can I convert this huge MPG to a DVD? There must be a way of doing this or at least converting to DVD format on my hard disk. Any help would be appreciated because I commited to doing this for a friend for this weekend but I have now run into a brick wall.
