    Attempted to burn a .mp4 file to DVD but my burner software, CopyToDVD, says I need ConvertXtoDVD to convert this format to DVD.

    Anyone know a freeware (open source) program? Thanks.

    You could see if DVDFlick (www.dvdflick.net) recognizes the file format. If so it will convert, encode and employ ImgBurn to make the DVD from start to finish. Super (http://www.erightsoft.net/SUPER.html) will almost certainly convert an .mp4 file to mpeg-2 or something like that if DVDFlick is not an option.

    DVD Flick should do the job, but for maximum quality FAVC is your baby. This is a true encoder, rather that a transcoder and takes about 8 hours to convert a 2 hour film on my old Celeron 1.5GHz system with the maximum quality settings.

    After this post, found an old version of ConvertXtoDVD and it worked.

    Posted this question on another forum and it was immediately locked due to fear of a lawsuit. Thanks to you both for the input and for stepping up.
