  • AVI to MPEG or onto DVD?

    Hi All

    I have captured (using my video capture card) a VHS tape onto my PC. It has created a uncompressed AVI file on my PC (it is poor software!) which is 3.9gb for 22mins of footage. How can i convert this (with some free software preferably) to MPEG or to make into a DVD? - Not just copy the file onto a DVD... i've done that and my DVD player can't stream the file fast enough and so it skips and jumps.

    Thanks

    Chris, I'm sure you have looked, but just incase, http://www.google.com.au/search?hl=e...free&meta=

    I have a look through a couple of pages and they offer a free trial period. Sorry I am unable to recommend one.

            well it is very quiet here at the moment. all the students are on are study leave or doing exams. at least im not trying to convert the file at work.... only because it is at home and it would take too long to copy over our vpn!

              This is the best software I have found, not sure what limitations the trial version has though !
