Hi

Its not quite as simple as that. You have to find out in which form the film is posted in. Most films are uploaded in a form of compression to enable people to download them quicker. You need to post here the type of compression used in the films that you cant play. For instance, if its an AVI file, the film will only play in a DVD Player that supports AVI. You can convert the files into another type of compression, or you can convert it to Vob files, which all DVDs are produced in.

But if you post the details, I will try and help you more .

:thumbsup:

The main thing you need to know and that's if the movie is a PAL or NTFS format, (if it's a dvd file).

1. What is the extension of the file?
2. Does it have a VIDEO_TS folder? If so, then the format is for another country, although it will play on your computer.

Make sure you are using DVD-R discs and NOT DVD+R.

do a search for convertxtodvd , i am sure you will be able to find a FREE one, use this programme to convert your movie file, Your converted movie file at the end will be in a folder named convertxtodvd , in my documents then use nero to burn to disk. . will convert most formats, and will be able to play on most dvd players, some players dont have the codecs to support these file formats, if your player is one, then maybe VCD format would be best. and as above use DVD-R disks. but CD-R disks for VCD.
