Q: What is frame rate?
A: In basic terms, a video can be thought of as being made up of numerous snapshots, called frames. Frame rate defines how many frames one second of video or audio contains. The commonly used acronym for frame rate is fps – frames per second. The human eye can’t see picture changes after the frame rate is more than ~24fps.

Video files with higher frame rates show motion better but have larger file sizes. Typical frame rates are 29.97 for NTSC video (in the American TV system), 25 for PAL video (European system), and 24 for film. When exporting low-bandwidth versions, select a frame rate that is 1/2, 1/3, or 1/4 of the original frame rate. Setting a frame rate higher than the original frame rate will make the file larger but will not improve the quality.

Note that MPEG format only supports 23.976, 24, 25, 29.97, and 30 frame rates.

Q: My Windows Media Player will not play my newly converted DVD file. What should I do?
