Convert WMV and MPEG to DVD

Can WMV and MPEG video files be converted to DVD? If so, how?

One set of procedures regarding MPEGs (other posters may/probably will suggest alternative methods) would be:

1) If not already DVD-compliant, use "TMPGEnc" (or "TMPGEncPlus") to convert the MPEG to compliant MPEG2-for-DVD format - Use "TMPGEnc's" DVD wizard/template to accomplish this (This step may not be necessary, if your MPEG-2 files are already in DVD compliant format)

2) Use "TMPGEnc DVD Author" (a different program than "TMPGEnc") to easily create the required additional DVD files and structure (and chapters and a menu, if you wish)
You can obtain a FULLY functional free 30 day trial version of this commercial program at:


**If the combined filesize of the DVD "package" written to your hard drive is greater than 4.37Gb, use DVD Shrink (or similar) to compress

If your O/S is either Win2000 or WinXP, TMPGEnc DVD Author can also burn your DVD. Otherwise, use NERO to burn in "DVD-Video" mode
(As an alternative to "TMPGEnc DVD Author", you could use "DVDLab")

Let us know of your success ;>}

Thanks setarip_old for your advice.
I havn't tried "TMPGEnc" yet but before I read your reply I tried "NeroVision" and converted some WMV files to DVD which worked OK but when I tried to create a DVD over 4.37 GB and save it to my hard drive "NeroVision" froze after 2 hours of encoding. Have you any suggestions?
