    Dvd stops encoding-says decoding programs are needed

    I need help, every time this movie is being encoded to a dvd it stops at .7% and it says make sure you have decoding programs installed on your computer.

    I need to know what programs are best for fixing the movie, the best for decoding or encoding(programs) so it can be burned with no errors. (doesn't matter if program costs money or not)

    BTW its only one movie tha'ts having problems and its in avi. format.

    Re: Dvd stops encoding-says decoding programs are needed

    .avi is not always a format, but more of a container.  In other words, you could have a mpeg4 avi, or a mpeg2 avi.  Whatever the avi is encoded in is likely not on your machine.  And if it is, DVD maker cannot find it.

    Can you play this .avi in windows media player?

    Can you import it into Windows Movie Maker?  If so, you're almost home-free.  You could output a .wmv file from Movie Maker and use that in DVD Maker (or go straight from Movie Maker to DVD Maker).

    Other ideas would be to get a video converter (Xilisoft makes an excellent one) and convert it using that to .wmv. 

    Hope this helps,

    Video commonly refers to several storage formats for moving pictures: digital video formats, including Blu-ray Disc, DVD, QuickTime, and MPEG-4; and analog videotapes, including VHS and Betamax. Video can be recorded and transmitted in various physical media: in magnetic tape when recorded as PAL or NTSC electric signals by video cameras, or in MPEG-4 or DV digital media when recorded by digital cameras.
