Faster video conversion?

I have some training videos in mkv format, size ranging from 1 gb 4.5 gb. We need to convert them to some other wmv/avi/mp4 format to display them on a TV monitor, through the DVD player.

I needed a fast video converter to convert these files quickly. The present XiliSoft converter is taking too long time and we have a large number of videos to convert. I have a dual core computer; it tends to get hot after an hour of converting.

Can you please name a smarter software that can do it quickly and efficiently.

We are not very much concerned about quality, as they are just classroom videos. I will also prefer smaller file size for ease of storage. Any idea about formats?

    1. Download ConvertXtoDVD here:

    2. Add or drag-n-drop as many video files as the DVD can handle

    3. Insert blank DVD

    4. Click "Convert"

    5. Enjoy watching those video files on your home DVD player! =)

    I thinkyou are wrong, if you want to convert your mkv format video files to play well on TV through the DVD player, you can't convert them to wmv/avi/mp4 format, because most dvd players only recognize standard video DVD well, so you need to use a right software to convert and burn your mkv format videos to standard video DVD that can be played well on TV through the DVD players. How long does it take to convert videos to standard video DVD? Depend on your computer performance, source videos size and length, and software performance, etc. AsI know, a better software can provide the faster speed on the same computer, so you can use a faster software, you can try RZ DVD Creator which provide the better encode quality and faster speed, it supports multiple coding threads, you can add multiple video coding threads on Advanced settings to enhance speed when convert video to video DVD, and it support multi conversion thread, if you have a multi-core cpu on your computer, you can add more conversion thread in option dialog to enhance speed when convert multiple videos onto one video DVD, or you can make video DVD in bedtime, the software will auto shutdown computer once the process completed, with RZ DVD Creator, you can convert and burn your mkv format videos to a standard video DVD to play well on TV through DVD players, or convert your big mkv videos to smaller divx or xvid avi files(select "divx dvd" or "xvid dvd") for easy of storage. You can yahoo or google search and download RZ DVD Creator, easy to use, hope it can help you.

    hi, it is very easy to do it.

    If you want to burn videos or music on a disk, you can't simply copy them on the disc, or the DVD player will not play them. So, you need a DVD Author software

    I alwasy burn my own video to dvd with Cucusoft DVD/VCD/SVCD Creator Pro. i have used it for a long time and it works very well.

    only a few steps you can burn your own dvd.

    Step 1. download and run Cucusoft DVD/VCD/SVCD Creator Pro

    http://www.flash-video-soft.com/avi-to-dvd/

    step 2. click "to dvd" and select "merge" or "batch"

    step 3. click "open" button to load your video files and you can set output format.

    step 4. click "convert" button and after the convertion has done, "CD/DVD Burning engine" will be launched automatically. please choose the dvd burner.

    step 5. Please place a DVD-/+R/RW disc into your DVD burner.

    step 6. When burning DVD is done, the DVD disc will be eject automatically. You can also find the output file at the output folder.

    Then you can enjoy your video on your dvd player.

    Just have a try and i hope it will be helpful to you.

    it's easy to use and works pretty well, if you are interested in it, here is a step by step guide about how to use it.
