  1. Was not sure if I should post here or in the Video Conversion thread. Since the end result I want is a DVD I thought this was the proper place. Feel free to move it, if it is posted incorrectly.

    I have a .mkv file I am trying to convert to a DVD 5. I set up AVStoDVD (2.7.3). Click on start. HCenc pops up. After a few seconds I get the following messages in the info line.

    ERROR, can't process AVS file. Wait for Avisynth error message
    ERROR, FFVideoSource Video codec not found

    Here is the MediaInfo

  2. Hi Richard,

    I fear that FFMpegSource does not handle correctly HEVC video format. You should look for a directshow codecs suite that support HEVC (i.e. LAV Filters), install it, then retry with the conversion.
