I'm using a video converter program called Video to Video to convert videos to another format; the programme can also trim videos and save them as a direct stream copy (which I'm assuming is the saved video in its original format). I've been capture my videos using Corel Video, then using Nero Video to convert them to a TS file to DVD. However, when a particular video file in Nero exceeds to 4GB limit, I have had to use Video to Video to trim the video into small parts so that I can fit the video without wasting too much disc space when burning to a disc (very often files exceed past the red line even when the video is only very short and only about a few hundred MBs in size which should fit). But when I've trimmed the video and saved it using the "Direct Stream Copy" option, when played through VLC player, I find there is no sound, yet when played in Windows Media Player there is (very strange). Why would there be no sound in VLC when all I've done is converted the video file direct to the same format only trimmed it? However, when I convert the video to an MPEG-2 file there is audio when played in VLC, but for some reason the video is "squashed" up for lack of a better term, and I have to then correct the aspect to 4:3 to resize it, which may seem OK but when the file is dropped into the Nero Video project timeline the video appears squashed in, and it will probably remain that way when I've burned it to a DVD. I'm guessing this is down to the crappy video converting program I'm using, but why no sound I don't know, maybe Corel is at fault there, maybe a codec issue.
