Hello,

I have a bunch of Real Media files (.rm) and want to convert them to
mpeg2 - the goal being burning them to a DVD and playing them on TV.

Would anyone be able to suggest a good program that would do this in
one step? I have 14 files to convert and burn.

EO Video converts .rm to mpeg1, not mpeg2. This is what I used
before.

Suggestions and comments welcome!

Thanks!

Tmuld.

What is the image size of your Real Media video? Most I have seen
are 1/4 D1 or smaller and encoded at relatively low bitrates. The smallest
DVD compliant MPEG is MPEG1 NTSC 352x240 / PAL 352x288,
the video bitrate Max. 1.8Mbps.

Googleing around I found this list for rm to DVD

"DVD Santa" (a much liked program)
"WinAVI Video Converter"
"X Video Converter"
"WinMPG Video Convert"

All are shareware priced at $30.

I'm new to this but after searching around the last couple of days I
downloaded and tried WinAVI Video Converter. It seems to work well but you
have to pay to erase the nag ware text that it embeds on your converted
videos.

How much free hard drive space have you got?

I recently used EO Video to convert a load of Real Media videos to
uncompressed AVI and then used TMPGEnc to encode the AVIs to DVD MPEG2.
I saved video only AVIs and uncompressed (PCM) WAV audio - separate files
for each stream.

The Real Media files were all about 20 minutes in length so i worked my way
through them making the most of my free hard drive space.

I could have used the HUFFYUV codec (maybe?) instead of using uncompressed
RGB for the AVIs but i didn't!
