Default How do I convert mpeg2 to DVD?

I just recorded an mpeg2 file and now I want to be able to play it in a regular DVD player. How do I convert this?

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

1) Use "TMPGEnc" to convert the MPEG to compliant MPEG2-for-DVD format - Use "TMPGEnc's" DVD wizard/template to accomplish this

2) Use "TMPGEnc DVD Author" v.1.5.11.37 (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 ;>}

I have used tmpegenc dvd and burned a working dvd. However, if I watch in on my computer and try to skip ahead in the file, the sound becomes about 5 seconds behind. What do i do to fix this?

What software are you using to play it? You should be using a software DVD player such as WinDVD or PowerDVD...

Rather than speculate where the problem might lay, first try playing the burned DVD on your standalone DVD player (via television) to see if exhibits the same behaviour...

It doesn't, but I can't really skip around on my standalone like I can with PowerDVD. So, I guess it really doesn't matter, I won't be playing it on my PC and/or skipping around anyways.

"but I can't really skip around on my standalone"

Maybe not by using a slider but, with your remote, you should be able to select any point in time (not just next/last chapter or fast forward/fast backward) in your DVD. I'm sure you can locate such information in your standalone player's documentation...
