convert and burn WMV to VCD

by SherA / April 6, 2005 9:29 AM PDT

Hi! I have a short (30 min) movie on my computer in WMV format and I want to burn it onto a CD. How do I do this and what is the best program to use? I have Adaptec Easy CD Creator 4 but there is no option to create video CDs. I don't have a DVD on my computer. I have a Pentium III 800MHz, 20GB HD, 128MB RAM running WindowsME. Thanks for any help!

The tools I use to do that.

1. WINAVI from

This accomplishes the WMV to SVCD or VCD in one step.

2. Ulead DVD MovieFactory 3 from

This creates the VCD or SVCD if you want more effects, menus, etc.

I just went to WINAVI and the user reviews are great! Can I use the trial version to do this, or do I need to purchase it?

Right now, I just want to get this movie onto a VCD, but the Ulead DVD Movie Factory 3 sounds like it would be something I would need in the future when I want to get creative.

Thanks again!

Yes, I just read on their website that the demo version displays a watermark on all converted video.

Thanks so much for your help. You may hear back from me again if I have trouble using the program.

How I did it
by SherA / May 3, 2005 11:03 AM PDT

Hi, I just wanted to let you know how I got the movie onto a CD. I was able to convert the movie to mpeg with TMPEnc, and then burn it to a CD with Aurora Media Workshop. And it was all free!

I did download WinAVI, but I never paid for it, so I didn't use it. I think that I will order it in the future. Or ULead, unless I need both to be able to convert, author and burn.

Thanks again for your help!

Can I burn with it?
by SherA / April 27, 2005 4:27 AM PDT

Thanks for your reply. I see that it can convert WMV to VCD, but can it also burn to a CD, or would I need to get something else to do that? And would I be able to use the free trial, or would I have to buy it?

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
