wmv to mpeg1 converter

Hi guys, does anyone know of a free program that will convert the files so that i can make a vcd that will play on dvd players through the TV.

When i use XP´s movie maker they only play on the PC.

thanks in advance john

Nero can do it if that's your burning prog. If not TMPGenc can probably do it click here

Having said it I'm not sure nero does it (it's not easy to find out what formats it can convert), but TMPGenc can convert TMclick here

nero 6 will do it, do you have nero 6 ultra edition?

if so go through to the end just before you burn and you can change the setting which is ntsc, to PAL,

burn and watch.

dont forget if its not a DVD burner to also change the DVD setting to VCD.

I have nero ver 6,0,0,9

when i try to drag file over it says " unexpected file format" and wont load it.

I will try MichelleC`s link on it.

Thank you both for the help....john

OR you could try a programme thats very good,
its called ALL MEDIA FIXER, drag in file tell it to fix it and its done, simple to use and it does a great job.

Windows Movie maker needs to save in AVI mode for subsequent conversion to mpeg.
If you have Nero 6, you can then use Nerovision Express to compile your DVD.

Thanks guys it looks like Nero Express automatically changes the file to mpeg1 on the burn,,, :-)) will give it a try mañana....john
