downloading music videos

Hi. I know this might not be the right forum but it seemed the best choice. I am trying to make a dvd with music videos that I can play in my 2yr. old DVD player to watch while exercising at home. It's not a blue ray player but not sure the tech specs for video formats it will play. I know it won't play a video in mp4 format. Maybe MPEG-2? I was wondering where is the best place to download music videos from and in what format do I need to pick from? Also, I see skidvid on the internet a lot for music videos, is that a codec? I don't have a preference of free music video downloads vs. fee for service ones. I just want it to be easy.

After the download you get to create your VIDEO DVD.

Forget all the MP4, MPEG-2 and such because it never matters as your DVD PLAYER if it's like 99% of those out there can't play the files until we make a VIDEO DVD.

I won't duplicate the fine web content on this or the manuals for a fine easy and free creation tool but leave you to research the following title. Ready?


Good hunting,

Thanks Bob,
I checked it out and it looks good. Do you like using that over video monkey?

I have had no reason to switch. It's like the old man told me. If you find something that works. But there's that engineer that replied like so:

Me: It's working.

Engineer: I can fix that.
