    Converting WMV (Windows Media Video) to play on standard DVD player

    Ok folks i have a serious problem i need to sort out by tonight. I have made (am still making) a video for work that i need to show to a large audience tomorrow.

    My problem is that i need to show it on a standard home DVD player but it is currently in .WMV format. Whats my chances of:
    A) Converting the files to play on a home DVD player? I think they are .VOB files?
    B) Getting it converted to DIVX so it can play on a DIVX DVD player?

    All help will appreciated and time is running out. I'll be replying during the day

    divx is easy, but you may have compatibility issues, certain devices only work on one version of the codec.

    as far as converting it to a dvd image, very easy indeed if you have (or can acquire from someone) something like nero premium, which will literally let you point and click it in there.

    IIRC Nero has features built in that will do all the converting for you.

    Convert to Xvid format and don't use quarter pixel, gmc

    Xvid is actually more compatible with divx players than the divx codec.

    Yep, Nero Vision would be easiet to convert to DVD.

    If you want some free software, you could use AVI2DVD, which does WMV as well.

    I only have version 6.6 of Nero and it doesnt seem to have 'Nero Vision'
    I'm currently thinking of exporting it from movie maker as a DV-AVI file so it isnt .WMV

    I recently converted dv-avi to DVD, I had problems with Nero Vision and ended up using TMPGenc to convert the dv-avi to VOB and then used Nero to Burn that, which you should be able to do with you version.

    Cheers for the help guys. I went for DVD Santa in the end as it simple to use and produces high quality output compared to Nero.

    Re: Converting WMV (Windows Media Video) to play on standard DVD player

    I used Prism to convert to mpeg2 for DVD. Anybody know how to increase size of image? The black border round the display is a bit overpowering! I know the poor quality of wmv is going to show badly but some increase in size would be useful?

    Nerovision Express, WinAVI or VSO ConvertX will all upscale your image to standard dvd dimensions for you.
