    Does anyone know if its possible to transcode Windows Media 9 high-definition
    files into VOB file that can be played on a normal set-top DVD player?

    I assume as long as I transcode high-def. video at a bitrate under 8 Mbps, then
    the VOB file should play without any problems. Any snags in this theory?

    I will be using Sony HD camcorder source video, transcoded to WMV HD in Premiere
    Pro 1.5, and transcoded to VOB files and burned to DVD dual-layer in Adobe
    Encore 1.5.

    Thanks for the help....

    I don't know why you could not do this, but it is more that just bitrate.
    You would need to resize the video to DVD compliant size like 720X480 (576
    PAL) and maybe convert the audio to AC3 or PCM if it not already.

    That kinds ruins the whole point of viewing HD if its only 480 res.

    I heard there may be newer DVD players that can play WMV-HD video?
