  • N00b video question

    OK, I've looked and most of the info I've found is a little to technical for me.

    I need to convert some home movie DVD's over to a format that I can stream to my XBox360 via media center when I want to. I already have them ISO'd because I copied them for family not long ago for a reunion.

    Does anyone know how I can convert them to something that is streamable like MPEG-2 or 4 or whatever and preserve the chapters and (I dunno how to describe it) 'wholeness' of the video? Preferably something free - but I would consider buying something.

    So far everything I have tried just chops the disks/files into bunches of 'chapter pieces' and makes individual files of them. If there is somthing that is straight forward and I don't have to recreate the disks chapter my chapter would be a BIG bonus.

    Ideas? Anyone? Anyone?

    How do you intend to preserve chapters within a single file? To the best of my knowledge, none of the popular formats have any sort of "seek" functionality built in.

    I have a tendency to key out three or four things and then let them battle for supremacy while I key, so there's a lot of backspacing as potential statements are slaughtered and eaten by the victors. ~

      'Eh.. see I dunno that. Just trying to preserve the work that was done and be able to stream it like a DVD in a library from the M$ Media Center.
