    For the last several days I've had trouble authoring a DVD with AVStoDVD because the results keeping having the audio be out of sync with the video. There's also been a warning that "aften.exe has stopped working", and the software uses some backup process to handle the audio. (I have no idea what aften.exe is.)

    It's got to have something to do with Windows 10. (The computer I'm using was upgraded and this is the first real problem I've had. And I've tried both the latest solid version of AVStoDVD, and one that I know works well on my other computer. Same problem with them both.)

    Some of the codecs are showing up as Microsoft, whereas on my other computer that is NOT the case, but I can't figure out how to switch to the other codecs on the W10 machine. (It says the codecs need to be updated.)

    I totally gave up and went to use Windows DVD Maker to do the disc...

    Immediately the computer said the MPEG-2 encoder is missing.

    Well, that's not surprising, is it?

    I've got another thread running with regards to the AVStoDVD problem (Mr. C, who apparently makes the program, has even been involved), but this is something else now.

    HOW do I get the MPEG-2 encoder restored to this computer, and...for the other matter, what should I do to try and get the up to date codecs for AVStoDVD?

    Anyone have any idea?

    (Any input on "aften.exe" would be appreciated too.)

    Thanks, guys.

    Seems that AVStoDVD is not yet Windows 10 ready AFAIK. And Aften has not been updated since 2007.

    And the fact the MPEG-2 encoder is MISSING?

    I've found out that Windows DVD Maker doesn't work with Windows 10, and Microsoft suggests looking for an app in the Windows apps store.

    Plenty of players, NO way of authoring DVDs (or Blu-ray discs), so far.

    Are they trying to block people burning their own discs now? Grrrrrr.....

    I just did a test encode with AVStoDVD with no issues whatsoever in Windows 10.

    I have the LAV filters installed, and have set them as the preferred codecs for most formats using the Win7 DS FilterTweaker tool. Checking the results in AVStoDVD, using the Preferred DirectShow Codecs Setup shows that the LAV filters are selected for use in AVStoDVD.
