If you have Nero, I believe it will automatically do the conversion if you write a VCD.

If you make a VCD it will automatically be full screen on your TV.

thanks Luuk!
i wonder if I'll lose quality on the image or will show the same quality as on the windows media player??

You will lose quailty because you are blowing up what was a 320 x 240 pixel screen onto a full TV screen. The better the resolution used in the wmv clip the lower the losss on screen, but you will lose a fair bit.

I never noticed a lot of quality loss on wmv I put onto VCD.
In fact, I have copied VCD's (that did not play on my DVD-player) through the computer with Nero and the copy plays perfect on my DVD-player!

Luuk, that's because you probaly sit further away from your TV screen than you do your PC monitor. The loss will be there, but becaue you sit further away you don't notice it. :wink:
