    WMV to SVCD/VCD

    I've got a few short WMV videos (those BMW short films) that I want to put on SVCD or VCD to play on a mates DVD player. What's the best way to go about it?

    Provided his DVD player will read VCD/SVCDs - I get the impression it's pretty much pot luck whether one will or not - it should be easy enough to just drag the files into a new VCD/SVCD compilation in Nero or whatever and burn it to CD. I think doing that would give you the videos playing one after the other, and you could skip forward or back with the remote. You should be able to put a menu on as well but I don't know how, sorry.

    I've never done this in practise so someone correct me if I'm wrong

    Yeah Gubs is pretty much right.
    Although I'm not sure if Nero supports WMV. You might have to convert them to MPEG first. www.doom9.org or www.vcdhelp.com will have programs/tutorials.

    Dead right Bindibadgi. TmpegEnc is the way to go - converted a few WMVs myself using this. vcdhelp.com seems down at the moment, but all the info on how to do it is there when it is back up.
