    I have some MPEG's I want to burn to CD. I have burned a lot of audio Cd's but this is my first attempt at making a Video CD. I keep getting this message(below) when trying to record certain MPEG's. I am not familiar with MPEG encoders so I need a litle help here. What do I need and is there a good free encoder or am I going to have to buy something?[​IMG]

    I'm about to burn my first video VCD and I've gathered alot of information, mainly on DVDRHELP.com. However, I can't determine if I should burn on a CD-R or CD-RW (I prefer the latter since I can try again if I screw up the first time... or the first 10 times!). When I burn an audio CD, I always use a CD-R to be sure that it can play anywhere; isn't it the same with VCDs? Also a CD-R, as far as I know, can start playing automatically (like any audio CD) in a stand alone CD player, and a CD-RW doesn't.

    I will be using TMPGEnc and VCDEasy and I'm also familiar with fasttrackmovies.com to make sure you're getting the right files before downloading.

    Thanks!
