Please help with your advice?! Thanks...I have several hundred files (sports related stuff) in either mpeg or wmv format that I need to put onto DVDs for distribution to friends and clients that they can watch on regular DVD players...but should I burn the mpegs and wmvs to DVD or convert them to a different and better format for DVD burn?? (I use the free software "Any Video Converter" to convert)....Please advise? Thank you....

H.264 and DV-AVI have saved fine for me (though it took so long) on me seemingly too-slow to do video 1.66GHz dual core system. H.264 embeded in a web page by plug-in form does not allow shrinking to fit. I've never had success saving thirty minutes of footage as a WMV file, however, without the rendering dropping out and turning black and later losing sound altogether after two minutes. It's not just the preview that does this, as the file after rendering shows nearly the same thing. Once it came out of 0.5 seconds of blackness and stopped.

I made some instructional videos and rendered as .wmv, They are many gigs in total.

Is there some way to reduce the size - or is there a better format - so they fit onto fewer dvds and the viewer doesn't need special software on their computer?

I can convert to flash, but what if the viewer's computer can't read .flv videos?

Any suggestions will be much appreciated.
