Hi, I have a AVI file which I want to convert for viewing on TV (to VCD/DVD). i tried using nero, but all it gives me is a blank screen w/ some "no signal" screens. Win AVI just crashes.

it seems to be this particular AVI file, b/c i tried other AVI files, they convert fine.

I have DIVX codec too. Also, I can watch the video using Windows Media Player, but i just cant seem to convert.

Is the AVI file you are trying to convert using the DIVX codec you have? DivX AVI are quite different and might need to be converted to a normal AVI first, then to VCD/DVD.

I know this one is complicated, but get Bulent Screen Recorder 4, record what you're trying to convert, and save it as AVI or WMV there. (Do make sure the recording box on Bulent is near exactly 640x480 or it won't look right on the TV.

ok i figured it out by converting my AVI file to DIVX format, using DIVX converter. then, i converted it to WMV format using WinAVI. then i could burn it using nero.
