Nero 6 and SVCD - Newbie

I have captured a friend’s home video using Windows Movie Maker 2 (I know, I know!) and saved it as wmv.

I used Nero 6 Express to convert the wmv to mpeg2 and burn to SVCD at a reasonable 12x.

It seemed to work fine.

However, I cannot play the SVCD on my PC. I have installed an MPEG2 codec and also tried through PowerDVD 5.

I don’t have a VCD/SVCD compliant DVD player to test it, but if it doesn’t play on my PC…

PS The reason I saved to SVCD is because the person whose video it is does play SVCD but I don’t want to post it to them until I know it works.

Any thoughts anyone? Thanks.
