Davidwillis - If that VOB is 720 x 480 it's std 4:3 American NTSC.
> To play on an American 4:3 AR NTSC TV it doesn't need anything added - bars, etc - to it....
> You can use DVD Styler - to create the *ifos and *.bups, etc, for it. Once you have those, change the directory name to VIDEO_TS - drop it into K3b, and K3b will write it to a playable DVD.
- (You didn't say what size that VOB is - but I'm assuming that it's compliant - no larger than 1,024MB. However, IF it is larger than 1,024MB - it either has to be converted to compliant VOBs - OR "Authored" to write a playable DVD.)
> If you want to convert it to AVI - many TV Players won't play Xvid4. So you'd want Std MPEG4.
> Stick it into Avidemux. Say Yes when it wants to Index the file.
> For the "Video" setting, top left - select "MPEG4" - at the top, below the word "Copy".
> If you want good quality video, and the audio in sync - open "Configure" and at the top, change "Constant Quantiser" to "Two Pass - Average Bitrate". In the box below that, leave the rate at 1000. Close "Configure"
> Under "Audio" change "Copy" to "MP3 (lame)".
> At the bottom - "Format" should say "AVI" - if not, change it to that.
> Click the "Floppy-Disk" icon on the bar, and browse to wherever you want the Moviename.avi file saved to. Name it suitably, where it says "File Name". Then click "Save" and let it process.
