Converting Video

Whats the best software for converting video files?

I want to burn a music video onto DVD using Nero but the video file has a *wpl (Windows Media) extension which is not supported by Nero.

Windows Media only burns Audio CDs and Data CDs unless I pay for an upgrade.

Incidentally, the music video is Peter Kay and Matt Lucas singing I'm gonna be 500 miles with the Proclaimers for Comic Relief night :o) which I downloaded from

The wpl files is the playlist file listing, you cant convert them as they arent video files,what you need to do is to find the actual video files on your pc.
Once you find them you can establish the video format,this maybe then compatible with nero or a format that is possible to convert.
snowy30 is there anyway to find out what format they download in or can you remember the download location.

i think you could be stuck here,the streams are drm protected by the looks of it,your allowed to do 1 back up copy of cd but not video and it is tied in to media player.
