Yeah I could see ripping old home VHS movies sure - but no reason to burn them to dvd. And no reason to store them in mpeg2 - not space effective.
There are lots of players that play all kinds of formats, mine play pretty much anything you could throw at it

Its a waste of time to burn it to dvd and be limited to that specific format - just store the digital copy and play it on your TV with any of the 100's of different players out there. Or just connect your computer to your TV with a video card that has hdmi out, etc. etc..
MY player is much smaller than any DVD player - and it just pulls my video library off my network.
But that software does exactly what you want - as to whatever error your seeing. How about looking into what it is.
