Using Nero Digital to encode H.264/AVC

    I want to start backup my miniDV tapes(70+) and looked into using the
    Recode 2.2. My plan is to compress and store them on DVDs as files so
    in a few years I will be able to compile the raw material into various
    personal movies.

    My questions are:
    - can Nero read DV type 1 avi?
    - how standard is the exported H.264/AVC file format ? What are the
    chances I will be able to read it 5 years from now?

    Oh Good, another backup debate :) I would say the best thing to do is to
    backup back to tape. I also have backup hard drives removed and sitting on a
    shelf that I would say would last a long time just sitting there. DVDs and
    any other media would still be there 5 years from now so I wouldn't even
    give that short time any concern.
