I have this crappy gateway digital camera that can do short video. I want to take some of the videos and burn them on to CD so I can show them to family who don't have PCs (show them on their DVD players). I have done this in the past with videos that I downloaded off the net, they were mpeg. the videos from this camera just say 'video clip' and don't say any format, they will play in MS media player and quicktime. When I burn 'video clip' to CD and put it in a home DVD player the display just says 'mp3' and doesn't play.

Does anybody know how I can get theese videos to to CD so they will play on a DVD? I assume I will need to convert them to mpeg or other format, what software will I need to do this?

to convert them to mpeg format, u should know in what format they are stored.

in general you can use winavi or tmpgenc softwares for mpeg conversion.

OMG!! Until I JUST went to www.gateway.com, I had no idea that gateway sold Digi-Cam's!! I used to work at a HUGE electronics store that sold many diffrent types of Digi-Cam's... and I was unaware...


here is a full list of Digi-Cam's from Gateway's website:


There are no Gateway ones... which camera do you have?? the ease in using a digatal camera seems to be directly related to who makes it.

Right click the "video clip" and select Properties.
Does it give you an extension (.mp3, .mpeg, ....), and if so, what is it?
