My DVD doesn't support MPEG-4 or MP3 playback
I've tried using DVD authoring tools before--the last one being DeVeDe, but it always hangs and others have failed me too (maybe a radeon videocard problem, not sure).
I've suceeded in the past in making a very basic DVD by simply converting my avi like so:
It's really easy and never fails. I've just been lucky in the past because my avi's have always scaled well. This it the first time I've tried to burn one of those widescreen avi versions. So at the end of the conversion, the movie works great except every one has a long face and all things appear stretched or squished. If someone could direct me on how to get the right size scaled and the right padding that a standard DVD will accept, then I'd be good to go.
