    I had to wait until I got to work this morning to try the suggested fix; therefore, I did not know how to rate the suggestion. Now that I have tried the fixes and they didn't work, I can rate it as thanks for trying.

Why is the projected video black in the Player? If you can see the Player, but the Video and Visualization pane is black, this usually indicates that your video card is not configured correctly. You can usually correct this problem by changing the video acceleration and/or overlay settings for your video card. To change video acceleration, do the following: 1. In Windows Media Player, on the Tools menu, click Options. 2. In the Options dialog box, click the Performance tab. 3. In the Video Acceleration area, move the slider to adjust the video-acceleration capabilities of your video hardware. Drag the slider to Full to use all available video acceleration. Drag the slider to None to use basic video-acceleration settings that work with most video hardware. To change overlay settings, do the following: 1. In Windows Media Player, on the Tools menu, click Options. 2. In the Options dialog box, click the Performance tab. 3. In the Video Acceleration area, click the Advanced button. 4. In the Video Acceleration Settings dialog box, under Video Acceleration, clear the Use overlays check box.

As a novice I wish to download an instruction video to a dvd disc. How would be good!!!


If you just want to put the video on a disc that will be played on a computer, you can simply copy the video file onto a disc as data. Windows has basic disc burning capability built in, but other applications give you more features. I use CDBurnerXP, which is free. Another free burner is InfraRecorder. Also, many computers come with versions of programs like Nero or Roxio preloaded. With one of these programs, you pick the "create a data disc" option, drag the video file into the appropriate window, tell the program to burn the disc, and you're done. Again, this would only play on a computer using a player like Windows Media Player, WinAmp or VLC.

If you are looking to make a DVD that would play on a regular DVD player, life is a little tougher. This is especially true if you want to add any features to the DVD like menus. You need a DVD authoring application for this, and the really easy-to-use ones are commercial versions that aren't cheap. There is a good, free program called DVDStyler that I use. It's a bit tough at first because the documentation is weak, but there are several YouTube videos and other sites that can help. The program lets you make your own menus, add background pictures and music, converts the video files to the format needed to make a DVD, and allows you to preview the disc before you actually burn it. The result, though, is a DVD that works like the ones you buy at the store.

Hope this helps get you started. Thanks for using Fixya!

Easy way to burn WMV video to DVD and play on a DVD player


One of the most popular video formats used with computers and found on the web is WMV. WMV is wide compatibility with Windows PCs. it short for Windows Media Video. And it is the name of the video encoder that was created by software giant Microsoft. The advantage of WMV is that Good compression and quality. WMV movies are played with third party media player programs such as "Windows Media Player, "RealPlayer" and "VLC player". A lot of people saved WMV clips onto compute and want to make WMV to DVD for playback on a DVD player watch videos on TV screen.

DVD ( Digital Video Disc ) is an optical data storage device which can hold large capacities of digital data like high quality video and movies. A VOB ( DVD Video Object or Versioned Object Base ) file is a container format for DVD video files. An explanation of VOB files is beyond the scope of this article, but a study of the software part of the DVD format is essentially a study of the VOB container file format. With CD’s or Compact Disc’s becoming virtually obsolete with the emergence of high capacity storage HD DVD’s and Blueray disc’s, more and more video editing tools are geared to conversion between these two highly popular media formats, WMV to DVD.

How to convert WMV file to DVD?
Before we go to detail steps, there are some Pre Requirements: A blank DVD disk (DVD +R, DVD-R, DVD+RW or DVD-RW), rewritable DVD-ROM, A WMV to DVD Converter.

Previewing WMV video
Just for make sure everything goes as your plan you could have a video preview before burning it to DVD.

My LG DVD palyer will not play Windows Media 7


Hi,its obvious from your problem that both windows media 7 and mpeg video formats are not compatible with your dvd player,as you know,the windows media 7 is a very recent media player which is compatible with only very few dvd players so its not a defect with your dvd player,however you can go through your manual to see the list of video formats supported by your dvd player.
Thanks and take care

VIDEO FILES OF CANON SX10 IS NOT PLAYING IN WMP


H264 is a "mov." file. Windows media player11 and Power DVD 9 do not support this type of file. If you don't like QuickTime, there are many free media players that will support it (VLC is a good one). You could convert the mov. file to an avi. file with a video converter program. Then your avi. format movie will play in WMP

Shaky sound and video


To solve this:

1- Check if you have more than 1 DVD player program installed. If yes, uninstall any you don't use (being careful not to uninstall the one you use or that's needed for the recording part of what you do)
2- Check if you have more than 1 Media player software like VLC media player, Microsoft Media player (automatically installed) etc.

Because it also affects video played saved on your computer (assuming AVI or video you play using Windows Media Player or another player) and DVD playback, its usually a program that is conflicting with another of the same type (plays media Audio/Video). If the above solution did not work, try performing the "system restore" and choose a date of when you definitely remember it working without chatter. If this is not an option, proceed below.

If your computer has been performing regular updates and you happen to be using a new Windows Media player, do you remember if it happened during a computer software update? If yes, the fault lies with Windows Media player having performed an upgrade to itself. You may want to "demote" media player by going to Control Panel and "add or remove programs" list (making sure "show updates" is checked) and scroll down until you see Windows Media player. Then uninstall the latest update it has performed.

If you installed another media player/DVD player program(s) and it coincides with your problems, uninstall it. Multiple DVD/Media players have their own settings, file changes/updates and they can affect one another if installed simultaneously on 1 system.

Let us know how it goes and rate us. :)

Transfering Videos to my computer?


Sounds like you have conflicting file associations, which means that some types of files open in one player and others in another. However, this isn't your main problem.

To play the DVD file on the pc you need to have the .ifo, .vob and the .bup files in the same directory as well as the video_ts files etc. Easiest way to do it is to copy ALL of the files from each disk to a folder on the pc, then you can play them from there and format your disks ready to be re-used.

If you'd like further help with converting the format and sorting out your file associations please post again but the above information should cure your immediate problem.
