I'm looking for recommendations for programs that will turn my mpeg's, avi's, mov's, whatever else into vobs. I've been using Nero a bit, DVD Architect, and a demo of Ulead, and each one of these programs give me a fault somewhere that forces me to stop using the program.
I'll get one video file that cannot be transfered due to some unknown error. Nero vision was giving me trouble with two different clips. One would freeze and stay frozen until I switched to the next clip, and another clip wouldn't even load into Nero. I had a different clip all together not load into Architect, and another clip load into Architect that wouldn't load into Nero give me a black screen with just audio.
Ulead has given me the most success with menu editing and customization, as well as having everything work except one important aspect.... IT CRASHES BEFORE EVERY BURN! Every single attempt at a burn is a crash! It's unreal, I don't know how they got away with releasing that program. Shame on that company. It appears to be common knowledge all over Google too, it's too bad since that's the program that has actually let me load every clip and successfully get... well, I can't say successful, but it's so far the closest. I've had one successful burn with Ulead - I messed up on the menu editing, all the words were partially off the screen so I figured I'd burn it again. Problem central started from here on out.
So my question is... could somebody recommend me something with real solid menu editing as well as a decent chance at loading up any old clip? I've tried to load some my "broken" clips into Vegas and Movie Maker just for kicks and they come up as just audio there too, so I can't even convert them to another format if I wanted to. I'm surprised Ulead worked the best off the start. Too bad it turned into a nightmare after one burn.
Sorry for the rant, I'm looking for help . :(
edit: I actually meant to put this in General software advice and not in this subform, I hope somebody sees it.
