I tried TMPENG to code the mpg movie and prepare for Author, and I followed your steps (thank you), but I am getting a green preview screen and it burned that way onto the dvd. I tried another one all over again and that time I got audio and no video.

Please help me get this thing finally working

Thanks so much reply

the guy magneta or whatever is out of order but speaking personally i have never been so stressed as i have been trying to burn files to a dvd.
i have downloaded all and more programs people tell me are must haves all i have is loads of programs on my desktop taking up God knows how much space and doing sweet fa.
ive got Nero 6 and the plug ins, the vision express ive tried to burn rar files ive got a dvd recorder Toshiba its a real bar steward you have to format a dvd with it before you do anything.
In turn once ive formatted it with the dvd recorder the pc wont recognise it once its formatted. I could quite happliy kick my pc / dvd recorder up and down the room or chainsaw it into little pieces. All experts giving advice is greatly appreciated. reply

Hi I am quite new at this game but have changed my avi file to a whole lot of other files! I am having loads of bother getting it onto dvd though, I have a ISO file at around 76 mb and an encoded video file.m2v at 2.2gb which is about right as it is only half a film. The problem being getting it to disc as I say, tryed burning it as UDF DVD film as it was too big to burn as a normal DVD (I think this was the reason, nero told me to burn as UDF)
So what I want to know is how do I burn this to DVD so I can play it on a DVD player, any help would be appreciated, nice 1 :0) reply

Hi! Great advice here! Everything worked like gangbusters, but one thing has me confused... after DVD-Author has finished encoding, I get a Video_TS folder filled with files, and an Audio_TS folder that is empty. Am I forgetting something for the audio, or should it be empty?

Thanks in advance! :D reply

I give all of you guys credit for trying to help, I think you are all nice guys, I really mean it for taking your time to help. But I came to one conclusion. I will never be able to burn one movie from Ares or any other file sharing and here is the reason why. I have winavi video converter, working perfect. I have all the codecs winavi asked for and yet I cannot play a file after it’s converted on any player and i cannot copy it to dvd either because it tells the format is not supported or not signed. I tried all codecs all shit, real time alternative 1.37, quick time, MPSsetup, and all the codecs they ask me to get and i am message free from winavi. So my question is, what is wrong?????????????????/ reply

Hi, I got mermaid’s idea’s on how to burn to AVI to DVD, I downloaded winavi converter, it seemed to do exactly what mermaid suggested it would do, but when i played the vob files, they had a nag stuck right in the middle of the film, stating it was a demo version. I re-read the post from mermaid and noticed that they kidnly included the user name and password/code to register the demo version, but I am not having any success with registration. when I type in the code and user name supplied, a message comes up on the screen telling me that it will need to close down winavi to register the product, then when I open it up again it goes back to demo version. I am hoping someone (mermaid or anyone else) might be able to help me solve the problem or suggest another way that is just as easy to convert avi to dvd.
Thanx reply

Winavi is by far the fastest and easiest way to convert a Divx/xvid/mpg or almost anything to DVD/VCD/SVCD. I used to mess around with encoders and authors too, but when it comes down to it, I’m quite happy to sacrifice a DVD menu for the simplicity that is Winavi. Compare this: 3-4 hours needed when using encoder/author, only 1 hour needed when using Winavi (and the quality is excellent). (there’s also DVD Santa, but the quality isn’t as good and it also takes 4 hours).

Phoebe69, the username/serial number you are using is probably for an earlier version of Winavi. If you want to produce DVDs without limitations I’d advise you to obtain a valid license. You can do this by buying one (legal) or downloading a crack/serial number (illegal), up to you. reply

First of all I wanted to thank Colin and The Dude for their help. I am new to this whole DVD-burning buisness, and you guys have hellped get me off my feet.

I have been following Colin’s exact instructions, however I encountered a problem. We all know that TMPEnc outputs two files: A video file and an audio file. I followed the exact instructions above but there is no hint as to what to do with the audio file.

I burned with Nero after filling the Video_TS folder with the proper files, but my movie is playing without any sound. When I tried to fill the Audio_TS folder with the recently-split .WAV sound file, Nero tells me that the file is incompatible.

How do I get sound on my movie? Do I have to convert this .wav file and then add it to the Audio_TS folder, or am I making a mistake somewhere else?

Thanks for all the help!

I have also followed advise from all the generous people on the forum. I have founf that winavi converter to be the easiest to do avi to dvd. all you do is choose the avi file in winavi, then you hit convert and it takes 1.5 hrs, you don’t have to worry about converting audio or video files. The serial no and user name is
User name : ---------
Registration code: --------
so you just download trial version from, then register the product with this code above. Good luck and Thanx to mermaid and the person on limewire who supplied correctn user name and password.

P.S Alistair Dalrymple does not work .... reply

I used to use all those programs & take hours to convert, but recently I found a program called vso divx to dvd which converts your avi to dvd vob files in about one hour (it even puts in autochapters!) if you also have vso copy to dvd it will then burn for you, otherwise just use nero. The whole conversion & burn in less than 90 min & works perfectly every time.

good luck reply

oops forgot to mention that I’m adding the files to nero vision. reply

Hello Again,

Thanks for the ongoing help. I have been successful in burning a couple of movies using WinAvi converter, however I am having some probs.

About 1/2 of the files I burn onto DVD with Nero (after converting the AVI files to DVD video using WinAVI) boot up as saying “Error: not NTSC format” in my DVD player.

Is there any way to ensure that the files I burn are NTSC? I’m getting tired of wasting CDs here....

Thank you Both, Colin and The Dude for the most informative and EASY to follow instructions for converting avi’s to dvd. I am new to all this stuff including a computer! But I am having a blast. I also have to say that I agree with The Dude. Its rude to gripe at someone trying to help, MAGSNET ASS. Don,t give it another thought guys, he’s just lazy. Watch you,ll see him working at Mickey D’s one day. He’s too lazy to learn anything other than use his mouth. reply

Good Luck reply

Dear o dear Phoebe69. If U take ur time 2 analyse what 44rOn mean is that he has converted it in2 the wrong system. Take a looked urself.
About 1/2 of the files I burn onto DVD with Nero (after converting the AVI files to DVD video using WinAVI) boot up as saying “Error: not NTSC format” in my DVD player.

“Error: not NTSC format” in my DVD player.
He doesn’t want any DVD reply


05-22-2005 01:21 PM

Hmm, it’s true that is says wrong format, but that doesn’t mean that it is Pal or something, maybe the disc is just messed up.

I’ll give DVDshrink a try, thanks.
