  1. Hey guys. Ok, here's my situation. I downloaded an SVCD movie file and it came as a TAR file. I decompressed everything and it contained an M2V and an SFV file. I couldnt play any of those using any program. I was able to play the M2V file on Nero and it played with the sound and everything. The thing is that I wanted to convert it to MPEG so that I could burn it as VCD and play it on my DVD player. Thanks!

    P.S. I tried TMPGEnc and it didn't help.

    An sfv file is just a checksum to verify that the file is correct. Normally m2v files are just plain MPEG-2 video elementary streams, but now and then people have given me MPEG-2 program streams with that extension. If it plays with sound then you can just rename it to .mpg and it'll probably be fine.

    A agree with the above although it assumes you have an mpeg-2 filter installed. If the mpg doesn't play in Media Player, use Power DVD or some other software DVD player.
