Why would I re-encode something that is already re-encoded? If I'm going to re-encode something, it's going to be from the highest quality source I can get, not something that already had it's quality trashed.

Or perhaps even easier -- is there a way to convert these WMVHDs to MPEG4, DivX or XviD?


If you have the bandwidth, here are the original H.264 captures: http://binsearch.info/?q=Star+Wars+oar+AVC+DE-EN-DC&max=100&adv_age=99&server=
They are about 20 gigs per movie

The title crawl and all subs are in German, but the quality is unequaled.

.AVI to DVD
Time
Instead, get a DVD player that plays Divx. They can be found for around $30 bucks now. I got a philips that works really well.

It's also nice because the limit isn't the length of the video, but the size of the data. So you can fit 14 300mb episodes or 7 700mb files etc per DVD. All you have to do is throw whatever avi's you want on as a data disc, and it works. No converting, re-encoding etc.
