I have read some of the other threads, yet I dont think they addressed my needs specifically. I am simply trying to do this:
I occasionally get music videos in odd formats that always seem to have problems with conversions to "what I call STANDARD FORMATS".
Anyhow, I have, yet again run into one. It is Queens of the Stone Age, in Sydney Australian in 2003... a great show, although its in m2v format... and I dont want to compromise the quality... if possible by reducing the frame rate?? Someone said that is what I would need to do.
But here is the deal... I had all songs from this show as separate files.... in m2v. I used a program to combine them all into one file which is about 700mb or so. There is also one file that is an interview which is the very beginning of the show, although this file was and is originally an mpg. Now, I also did use a program to convert these m2vs to mpg, but I wasnt able to combine the interview file with the remaining music file. A friend said it might be because of the frame rate or fps or something to that effect.
So, my full intention is to get these files completely off my hard drive as DVD and then eventually I can rip them on my pc again and make them whatever format I like... preferably avi.
Any suggestions out there on how I might accomplish this?
This is a very exhaustive typing job... but I have spent hours trying to get this right... and still I have to throw my arms up in the air until I get it done
Thanks any and all who can help. Cheers!!!
