I am trying to convert video files from various formats that my DVD player cannot play (like mp4) to formats it can play, like avi and mpeg.
Tried using Any Video Converter, played with the settings a little, but in each of my test conversion (wich took 1 or 2 hours each) the quality of the transcoded file was really bad. Sound was awful, image quality, huge artifacts were stretching across the screen in one.
If you could recommend me some good software for doing high quality video conversions (transcoding?) and / or if you could point me to some good reading material on the issue - I did a few searches but couldn't find anything myself - I'd be very grateful : )
