How can I make a movie on Windows movie maker for playing on a DVD?

I have files I have uploaded from my handycam they are in Mpeg. How can I convert them into PAL mpeg-2 so that I can burn onto disk so that they can be viwed on a DVD player please?

Hi and welcome to SevenForums,
I don't believe you need to change the file type to burn a dvd in windows movie maker :/

About all you need to do is open the video file in wmm and it should open
Then click on the blue file button and Burn/ DVD Burn.

Insert a compatible dvd-R or dvd+R or combination of the 2 when prompted too.

Hi,
As long as you play the video in wmm and it has sound I don't see why burning it after it would not have sound,
But you can also save as other format too if you do have issues mp3/ wav.....
Confirm the disks you're using ?

Usually Verbatim DVD - R when I burn it, do I need to convert it from wmm to PAL?

Hi,
I have to admit I don't know what to do with the UK bit besides being the United Kingdom

I would just assume .wmv would suffice :/

I don't think a wmvfile would play on a dvd player would it? Only on a PC which my parents don't have.

Hi,
As far as I know dvd players are only restricted to types of disks they will read/ play not the contents on the disk.
