    Hey -
    Is there any way I can burn a WMV file to a DVD? I am using a Powerbook with the Superdrive. I wasn't able to find any plugins for iMovie allowing me to import WMV files.

    Thanx

    Only way I can see doing that is to get a PC and convert it with whatever freware program out there to .avi or .mov... then send it to your book... Other than that im not sure...

    what about the flip4mac plug-in for quicktime? i think it allows all quicktime-aware applications (or whatever you call it) to use wmv files.

    You could try burning it with Finder, though if you want to use it in a DVD player, I'm not sure if this will work.

    toast

    I converted it to MPEG. Toast is encoding it now, then it will burn. Hopefully this will work.

    I was trying to avoid buything things. I burned it in Toast but there are a few problems. When I play the DVD in DVD Player on my powerbook, it plays at around 5 times the normal speed, the audio also goes at that speed. On a normal DVD Player in my house, there is no sound. On a Windows computer, and another DVD Player in my house, the movie works fine. Does anyone know the problem there? In toast the Video format was set to NTSC, and the audio was Dolby Digital.
