Question Convert MPEG to DVD

Hi all
as you can guess I'm a newbie with a bit of a problem.

I'd downloaded a music performance MPEG to my harddrive and it played perfectly in Power DVD. However I wanted it as a dvd to be able to play in my domestic dvd. I used a trial version of DVD Santa to do a "one click" conversion but onlt to my harddrive (bit of a suck it and see approach). When i played back the new files in Power DVD the sound was out of synch with the film straight from the start.

Should I use some other product or what else can someone advice?

Hope I'm on the correct forum.

Best regards
ian

One set of procedures (other posters may/probably will suggest alternative methods) would be:

1) If not already DVD-compliant, use "TMPGEnc" (or "TMPGEncPlus") to convert the MPEG to compliant MPEG2-for-DVD format - Use "TMPGEnc's" DVD wizard/template to accomplish this (This step may not be necessary, if your MPEG-2 filies are already in DVD compliant format)

2) Use "TMPGEnc DVD Author" (a different program than "TMPGEnc") to easily create the required additional DVD files and structure (and chapters and a menu, if you wish)


**If the combined filesize of the DVD "package" written to your hard drive is greater than 4.37Gb, use DVD Shrink (or similar) to compress


If your O/S is either Win2000 or WinXP, TMPGEnc DVD Author can also burn your DVD. Otherwise, use NERO to burn in "DVD-Video" mode
(As an alternative to "TMPGEnc DVD Author", you could use "DVDLab")


Let us know of your success ;>}

Hi
thanx for the help ... but silly me. I tried to write as a dvd to my hard drive using Nero and it told me that the content was mostly NSTC and I elected not to change to PAL. Lo and behold! a properly synched version. So I went back to DVD Santa and this time elected a NSTC copy (it doesn't warn you like Nero!) and again got a properly synched copy.
So I didn't try out your suggestion although I don't doubt in the future that I will.
Thanx!!!

"Thanx!!!"

My pleasure ;>}

(By the way, it's "NTSC", not "NSTC")
