I’ve been banging my head for a few days against a problem at work, and I’ve come to the geniuses here for help.
I have a client that has lots of video files that they need to play on the computer and burn to DVD. My job doesn’t involve video normally, but I got recruited into helping them figure out how do do what they’re trying to do.
Here’s the situation: The video files have a .m2v suffix and the audio have .mpa. The files are divided by person, mean Bob Jones has a video and audio file, Sarah Conner has one of each, etc. I think this is referred to as “demuxed” in the parlance of those who know more about video than I do.
My final goal is two-fold: to be able to play the files on the computer and to be able to burn them onto DVDs.
The perfect solution would be one application that would do both. It would take the demuxed files and play them on the computer, and it would mux the files and burn them to DVD in the appropriate format.
There are a LOT of files, so I need a solution that can work in bulk. The playback computer will be running Windows.
Does anyone know of software that will do that? Or even know of a message board where I could ask such a question? Do you have enough information to recommend software, or is my lack of video knowledge hampering the discussion?
