    DVD Maker won't encode anymore

    OK, realized this morning that Windows DVD Maker isn't working period. I am trying to burn 2 video files and it is 0.0% encoding after 2 hours. Shut it down, new disk, and still same problem.

    Something new happen to it because it never happened before and the files are the type I never had a problem with. Video Clip (.avi)

    VIDEO

    frame width 512

    height 384

    data rate 17kbps

    total bitrate 145kbps

    frame rate 25 frames/second

    AUDIO

    128 kbps

     

    Anyone else having this problem today? Is there a way to reinstall this? I am using HP pav dv6500 notebook PC

    ram 2.00 GB

    system type - 32 bit

    Depending on what you installed/uninstalled between a good burn and encoding problems, there may be a conflict now. 

    check the BLOG on this very site - it might apply in your situation?

    I did get an updated Divx edition but that always worked with DVD maker. will see if I can go back to the older one and see if there is a difference.

    YUP, that was the casue of it. The new DIVX guess doesnt work with Windows DVD burner. uninstalled it and installed the 32 bit codec from that site again and it's working for now.

    thanks for the help Just2reply

    another silly question but is there a reason why DVD maker could burn on DL dvd's but cannot - gets stuck at 99% and then boots it out.

    dunno. You might want to check Movie Maker Tools | Options | Compatability and remove any codecs/filters ending in .ax and try burning again to see if it passes the 99%?
