Yeah. You read right. This is for everything that doesn't have anything to do with Eva.

[Tech] Help needed with computer stuff...

I'm trying to burn dvd's of video files that I've downloaded and I need either:
a. A converter to convert avi to wmv with NO drop in picture quality (i.e. no pixelation)
or
b. A program that can actually just burn dvd's (playable in normal dvd players like a ps2) from files such as avi or other common files.

Any help would be greatly appreciated. Seriously.

DVDs are fixed framerate mpeg2 streams, unless you have something that can convert wmv to mpeg2 video, you may has well start with the avi, since any transcoding is a loss in quality.

I don't know of any programs that can author DVDs for you on windows, maybe Brik knows.

A great program for transcoding AVI to MPG is TMPGEnc. There is a free version that has almost all the features of the full version. There are a lot of good features you can use on it, but it is even fairly straightforward for beginners.

As far as authoring DVDs, I use DVD-Lab-Pro, but it is expensive and not for beginners. I'm not sure what a good program would be to start with, maybe Nero?
