converting WMV to a higher bit rate

    I have downloaded a few WMV files from the internet that I want to burn
    to a DVD-R to watch on my TV. The WMV files are around 115 kbps bit
    rate, so when I burned them and watched them, the sound was not too
    good and didn't align with the picture correctly.

    For testing purposes, I had another WMV which was at 225 kbps and
    burned that, and the sound/picture was much better.

    Does anyone know if there are any decent freeware WMV converters that
    will make a 115 kbps better? I'm not sure if it will or not, but
    please send any tips/suggestions to

    Thanks!

    By the time the material has been taken down to 115kbps the damage has been
    done. Re-converting these files to a higher bit rate could only result in
    further loss of quality.

    You need to start with higher quality originals.

  3. "Lossy compression" is not just a name. It is actually descriptive.
    Usenet newsgroups work by having conversations here, not by
    email.

    Remember the expression garbage in, garbage out?
