I need a converter program to convert DV files to MPEG-2 for burning a DVD
“Hi there all, can anyone help please! I am a certified legal video specialist. I produce video recordings, mostly DVDs, for use in legal proceedings. Recently I switched to a Panasonic AG-AC130 AVCCAM, and captured a lot of standard definition source videos in DV format with it. I believed that if I want to burn Panasonic AG-AC130 DV files to a DVD, I should convert them to MPEG-2 previously, and this is what I did in the past for burning a playable DVD. The thing is that I really don’t have much experience with DV files, so I have no idea about which program should I use to convert my AG-AC130 DV files to MPEG-2 for DVD burning with quality loss as less as possible. I have tried a number of video converter programs and none worked as I expected. Does anyone have any recommendation? Don’t know how I’d do my work without such a converter. Many thanks for your help.”
