    Dan -- wouldn't it be easier to just download QuickTime?

    Brian,
    I can't directly burn quicktime to CD unless it is converted to either of the other formats. Luckily, I found a way to convert it. Worked real well!

    Indeed - don't leave us in the lurch, you're not the only one with Quicktime trailers that won't turn into VCDs easily!

    I just converted the latest two towers teaser to VCD. All you need is a program called TMPGEnc
    http://www.tmpgenc.com
    Guides for converting .MOV files are here:

    I always put my bitrates way higher than what they say though.

    Exactly, Kami! It took a couple of days of trial and error, but it paid off.

    Hey, what bitrates are you guys using? So I don't ahve to go through trial and error. Also, where is the Two Towers teaser? Is it a downloadable file or a streaming file?

    I would appreciate any help, thanks

    Does anyone know how to pull the trailers off of apple's website? They're just advertising, so why the hell are they so worried about us actually showing them to someone else? :angry:

    How did you conver the TTT trailer .mov to .avi? I've tried using RAD as recommended by vcdhelp but I only get the first frame converted.
