Hey group. I'm a newbie here, so patience would be appreciated if this has been answered before. I've downloaded a couple of short .mpeg files that I want to combine, then transfer to a dvd that would play on any dvd player. What is the process to do this? Thanks a bunch! Kevin

thanks, but...

Turns out problem is the .mpeg is not the the correct format...it will play on a VLC player, not quicktime. So now I gotta find a converter that will switch it to the proper format, then go to your patented 10-step process (smile!). Any
help there? I'm nearly there!

http://isquint.org iSquint should do the trick...converts almost any video file into .mp2 and h.264...both of which work perfectly with iMovie....now I just gotta find a .bin extractor....the search continues
