A lot of people want to convert MOD files from their camcorder to DVD but have no idea how to deal with it. The .MOD file format is used by various digital camcorder models (I.E Panasonic: SDR-S100, Canon FS100, JVC GZ-MG30) to save their recording videos. In fact, MOD video files are nothing but MPEG-2 files with AC3 audio. If you want to convert to MPG or AVI format for editing or playback, by just renaming the extension (xxx.mod to xxx.mpg) manually. However, if you want to convert MOD to DVD for playing on DVD player, it will require advanced skills, but for the novice or the non-technical user, this type of issues may just become a nightmare.
