    I got a P90x workout on my computer from my buddy. He put it on my ipod and I d-loaded it to my computer.

    I have copied the video to a DVD cd and it's still in whatever format it was sooo
    I put it back in my new toshiba laptop (windows 7) and burned it to WMP format.

    Then i burned a copy and tried to paly it on my DVD player and no luck......

    what do i need to do to get it to play? Where can i d-load DViX or something to get my player to read it?

    My girl says go to a download site (torrent???) and find another burning program that is compatible or re-formats to what is needed on your DVD player. She says WMP isn't that media friendly (or as much as people think) when taking it to another DVD source. Divx can be found at a torrent site too. Or piratebay

    This is all from my lady lol. But I do know that Windows Media has irritated me a ton too

    I use a free program called DVDFlick, it transcodes and burns most filetypes to discs that can be read by players.

    You must have a slow CPU. I just re-coded 3 DVDs in about 10 minutes. :D

    transcoding the video and audio is what takes so long, but it's required for it to work in standard players. and yes it depends heavily on your cpu speed.

    wait what?

    I thought you were transcoding a file from ipod to vcd?

    what the hell are you doing? dvdflick may not be what you're looking for

    ok. for taking video files and burning them to disc, use DVD flick.

    if you want to rip dvds you need something else.
