Re: dvd compressor

My favorite is AutoGK, but there are others. Here are 2 sites with comprehensive help, forums, links, and guides/tutorials for anything video related. They can both be overwhelming though...

For AutoGK, download and install the 2.45 version first, then the 2.48 beta on top of it. Do read and keep close the guide.

You can add video content to your Apple iPod and watch movies on its screen.
Video syncing is controlled by the iTunes application, which then sends the movie files to the iPod's hard drive.
The iPod supports a variety of video formats, and iTunes can convert other files that are not supported.

Plug the iPod USB cable into the bottom of your iPod.
Connect the other end of the iPod USB cable into a free port on your Mac or PC computer.

Open the iTunes application by clicking on the Dock icon on a Mac or using the Start menu on a PC.
Go to the "File" menu and select "Add to Library."
Navigate to the movie file you want to transfer to your iPod and click "Open."

Click on the movie you just added to iTunes, go to the "Advanced" menu and select "Create iPod or iPhone Version."
This will convert the movie file to a format that the iPod can play.

Click on the name of your iPod under the "Devices" list on the left side of the iTunes window.
Go to the "Movies" tab and choose to sync all movie files with your iPod.
Click on the "Sync" button at the bottom of the iTunes window.
The syncing process will begin and the movie file will be transferred to your iPod.

Transfer DVD Movies to an iPod
Transferring DVD movies onto your iPod for personal on-the-go viewing depends on the exact type of DVD you are using.
Some DVDs are in a format that can easily be transferred to iTunes, which can then convert the movies to a format for the iPod if needed.
If the DVD can't immediately be played in iTunes, you will need extra software to convert it before you can transfer the movies to iTunes and then to the iPod.

Load the DVD into the computer's disc drive and open up both the DVD in a window and your iTunes application.
Drag the DVD's main movie file into the main iTunes window to add it to your personal iTunes library.

Connect the iPod to the computer with its USB cable if it isn't already connected.
If it is already connected, or if the iPod does not automatically sync with iTunes, drag the DVD movie file from the library list to the iPod shown in the iTunes source list.

Convert the movie file to an iPod friendly format if you get a message saying the file can't be played on the iPod by selecting "Convert Selection for iPod" in the Advanced menu.
Please note that this conversion can take some time--five to 10 minutes for every two minutes of video.

Conversion Software

Download and install a DVD conversion program to your computer; look for one specifically designed for converting DVD to iPod if possible.

Open the conversion program on your computer and upload the DVD movie file into the program with the "Open" or "Upload" option.
There should be multiple files on the DVD; the actual movie has the longest run time.

Select the format that the file will be converted to from the program's drop-down list of available formats if the program is not automatically set for an iPod format. If an option specifically labeled "iPod" isn't available, choose an MP4 format.

Choose a location on your computer to save the converted file to using the program's "output" option--the desktop is the most common and easiest location.

Click on the conversion button, which is usually the biggest button located in the lower right corner, to convert the file and save it to your computer.

Open up the iTunes application and drag the converted iTunes or MP4 file into the iTunes library.

Connect the iPod to the computer using its USB cable.

I just used Windows Movie Maker to convert my .avi movie files from my Nokia onto a DVD. WMM burned the files succesfully and the DVD plays fine on my computer's DVD burner, but WMM is supposed to finalize...

Movie Maker is NOT the software you want for this process :D I tried a few years back as did my friend but it didn't work. Movie maker is ver basic and designed to teach children basic slideshow/video techniques. Try installing the free trial of Corel Video Studio Pro x3, this can make propper dvds, and also makes your files HD.

Writing multiple movies on single d v d

A standard DVD movie is about 8GB. However it is possible to put the same movie onto a CD. You will need to use MP4 or DIVX compression in order to squeeze it to fit. The quality is quite good. Google for free software to encode a DVD movie to AVI. Then you can burn it to DVD

Converting .DAT files to DVD Files

I guess that this file is from a VCD? If you just burn that file onto a CD as a data CD it should play in your DVD player. The AVSEQ01.dat file is already a (S)VCD file. It is in MPEG format and should be playable on a DVD player as is. Alternatively you can import the file you want to burn into nero vision. Once it is imported then choose to export the file as an MPEG file or burn direct to DVD. Please update the question & let us know if the information given was useful to you - Good Luck!
