I tried converting again on his pc using the same exact settings and it wont play. The only difference I can think of is he is running XP and Im running Windows 7. Could this be some kind of codec problem?
Yep...that would be my guess. The CODECs installed on a PC seem to be transparent to most folks...and they get loaded with various software. This is a fairly decent resource to determine what is installed and what was used to encode a video:
Actually, there are much better sources, but not that I can get to from work.
BTW, I convert DVDs to MP4 using Handbrake for my TPs...and it works great. I need to donate some money to that guy.
