Over the last month I have tried to find a way to convert some of my .mkv files to .avi. After a lot of work and headaches I finally found something that works. Actually, it was proposed to me by a certain member here, HitSquad. It's called AlltoAvi. You can find it at Source Forge.
Anyways.... I used this on four of my videos and it worked perfectly! I'm very pleased with the result but now I'd like to be able to put these files all on discs so I don't have to use up so much space for them anymore.
I tried to burn a trial CD (in VCD format with my Nero burner) of some of the contents. Well, when I put it in my other computer all I could get was the audio to play and not the video. I then tried to just make a data disc of the same thing and I got exactly the same problems. As a last ditch effort I also tried a DVD player which also failed. I knew that last one wouldn't work but I just had to check... Did I do something wrong? If so, what? How would you suggest making this work?
The original files were .mkv and I did convert them to .avi successfully, I'm positive of this. I'm also 100% sure my burner on here works without a hitch. The video players I used were: VLC, Divx 6.2, The Core Media Player, and Windows Media.
I'm open to just about any suggestions!
Thank you for your time!
