Originally, I was under the impression that it is possible to edit video digitally with a computer, and then save the video onto a CD so that it could be played in a DVD player. Now, I am confused. I have a computer that is capable of editing video, and a CD burner. I tried to play a VideoCD on our DVD player without any luck. I then realized that while the player is capable of playing home-made music CD's, it is not as capable of playing video that is just burned onto a CDROM by a computer. What equipment do I lack? Is this just a matter of converting my video files into a format that DVD players can read and then burning a CD? Or, do I need a DVD burner?

The control these products gave us was great and well worth the expense. But now I send everything out to a local vendor who is able to accept any digital format and will output any format I need. On top of that, they offer other services like archiving (think off site backup), animation, editing, soundtracks, etc... By going to a vendor I have access to the best equipment with the most up-to-date software available. I am also able to rent time on any of their equipment so that I can do it myself. --dave -- * * Please support the community that supports you. * * http://evolt.org/help_support_evolt/ For unsubscribe and other options, including the Tip Harvester and archives of thelist go to: http://lists.evolt.org Workers of the Web, evolt !
