AVI MOVIE AND MPEG MOVIE

by debron58 / July 17, 2008 10:26 AM PDT

Hello,

This may be a dumb question, but I'm stuck. Can I burn a home movie to DVD on my computer using WinDVD and using one AVI movie and one MPEG movie? Or do I have to have it all one format? If so, how do I convert the MPEG to AVI.
Thanks in advance for any advice, help, etc.

Either you can or you can't.

If you find it fails go get the free DVD FLICK and get it done.

Can create DVDs. Your post was too light on that so for speed I just thought it best to try and if it didn't offer a FREE solution.

I have created several DVD's with my WINDVD program. I'm at work now, but I will check what version I have when I go home. I'm just not sure if I can combine two formats, if that will work together and run smoothly as one movie. Thanks for everyone's responses and help. This is my daughters wedding tape I'm working on.

Try or not?

Most softwares will transcode as need be since the final DVD can't use the input video as-is in most cases. This is why I try it before I turn to transcoding tools.

Another way to say it. AVI doesn't tell us if it's compatible with your Windvd. There are now well over 200 encoders for AVI and Windvd doesn't support them all. This is another reason you have to try it and may never get a clear answer if it will work before you try.
