Thanks for this. I have tried the free demo, but whilst my PC recognises that the disk now has a movie on the disk. My dvd player attached to my television still will not recognise or play the disk.

MPEG-2 video is the file format you’ll need to convert to, but you cannot simply burn the MPEG-2 to a DVD and automatically play it in a DVD player.
The easily way is to buy software that will make the transition smooth; I recommend VSO Convert to DVD.

Why cant i upload my diamond one touch capture card to youtube pleeese help

Youtube, by default supports major video formats like MPG, AVI, MOV, WMV etc. If you are trying to load the .VOB files it may not support.

Try converting your videos to Youtube acceptable formats (mpg, avi, mov or wmv) and try uploading again. Also remember the maximum playback length of your videos shall be 15mins only.

Premier composite video caputer

To my knowledge, if the video feed isn't from a firewire source, or a file on a disk drive then Premiere will not recognize it. you would have to make sure the video isn't copyright protected, then have a program rip the files to your hard drive. DVD's usually store media in the .vob file format. Premiere, for legal reasons, doesn't access this type of file. you'd need some type of dvd backup software. there are many out there, some are even free.
