    My nephew installed a dvd in his car and downloads mpeg3 music video's from
    frostwire and wants to burn them to a dvd so he can view them on his car dvd
    player. Can anyone help us out with instructions on using Nero to accomplish
    this?
    Thanks
    Ed

    Not like this nephew much, I take it.

    So you want help creating another distracted driver?

  3. I'm sure he used to read books while driving, before switching to
    movies :)

    Isn't mpeg3 the same as mp3, an audio-only format?

    Hey Guys,
    I gree with you 100%. He does have parents that approved of it. But I agree,
    they should be illegal. The manufacturers along with the person should be
    held accountable. The files may have been mpeg. Any help would be
    appreciated

    When did anyone say anything "should be illegal"?
    Why do you think manufacturers should be "held
    accountable" for how people use their products?

    The legal system and the government is not the first or
    only choice for addressing everything we disapprove of.

    What help are you looking for now?

    Ken

    Ken,
    The product that he purchased and had installed is designed to be mounted in
    the dashboard were the operator of a vehicle can be distracted. It is not
    like the portable products designed for occupant use and entertainment of
    passengers, even though a driver could misuse the portable product the
    manufacturer should not be held liable. However this radio / dvd player has
    all the controls near the driver, making it difficult for a passenger to
    access the controls. This is a dangerous product, dangerous design and the
    manufacture, installer and owner should be held responsible for injuries and
    property damage of innocent people.. Whether this is a school child getting
    on a bus a person going to work etc.
    My same nephew suffered a serious injury because of poor parental judgemnet
    in the purchase of a motorcycle for him. One of those rockets younger people
    ride today. Anyway to get back on the subject of this group if anyone can
    give me advise on how to copy a video file from frostwire to a dvd I would
    appreciate it. This way I can get back to remodeling.
    Thanks,
    Ed

    Ken, Sorry to imply that anyone other then me made the implication that the
    product should be illegal and liable. I reread your posts and realize I
    misunderstood your meaning. My fault and appologies.

    Sorry, but I find this thread somewhat amazing. From what
    you've posted I can't understand why you would still want to
    create DVDs for your nephew's use while driving.

    Can't you just say no? You want to hold the manufacture
    responsible, but apparently feel you have no responsibility,
    even if you supply him with the video DVDs, even knowing
    his less than cautious history.

    You have mentioned poor judgment, in his parents supplying
    him with a motorcycle he wouldn't operate responsibly, what
    of your proposed actions? And what should we think of the
    judgment of anyone who would enable your DVD effort, now?

    I have posted many times about the process and tools used to
    do what you ask, and realize that there could be some who might
    misuse the information I have provided. But you are asking for
    help to do something I find particularly reckless, at some point I
    am required to exercise some judgment myself.


    Luck;
    Ken

  9. Well, if it will help you, Ken, think of it as helping the nephew win a
    Darwin Award :)

    And Ed Varin is not installing the device in the dashboard, he is
    converting videos to DVD. Given that the parents have already installed
    it, and that the boy can buy a DVD at his corner store legally, Ed
    isn't even contributing to his eligibility for the Darwin Award.

    MP3 is mpeg-1 layer-3, AIUI. I have no idea what the 'layer 3'signifies

  11. So I went to Wikipedia and managed to learn something:

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/MPEG-3

    Thanks for pointing out my error.

    But for all practical purposes you were right. MPEG-3
    never saw the light of day.
