Hello all, can anyone point me to a simple list of file extensions please?
For example say I want to convert an MP4 to record onto DVD I just want to know what extension to convert to. Seem to spend ages nowdays with so many .exts about. I guess there must be loads of pages out there of what each is for but I would like one without lots of spiel, with just words to the effect eg "Mp3 to CD use flv" format.
Movie DVDs for example need to be 'authored'.
An MP4 will be used by an authoring app to produce many files which are then burnt to DVD.
DVD Flick is a good choice. http://download.cnet.com/DVD-Flick/3000-7970_4-10972785.html
Stick a movie or TV recorded DVD in your PC and Explore it, don't play it.
You will see the files quickly and remember better, rather than learning a list.
A good video site is http://forum.videohelp.com/
Audio is same. MP3s can be burnt to a CD, but only some players will play them.
Normally they need to be converted too.
So the correct questions (for Google) should search for what you want to do and the source format.
Don't second guess what format you should have is what I am saying.
