Winavi- to Windows Movie maker trouble

Postby SilverFreedoms » Tue Apr 14, 2009 5:47 pm

I've been at work converting various FLV files to AVI files so I can use them in my Windows Moviemaker. Whenever I try to import one of these files to the Media library in my Moviemaker, the program immediately freezes up and quits itself. This has never happened before so I am a bit confused on what exactly I am doing wrong.

Can anyone point me in the right direction on what I should do to fix this problem?

I'm quite aware of that already , but I don't have much to work with at the moment so I'm using the FLV's until I can find something better....

Actually it's not a DVD, it's a PSP disc

and I have no flipping clue how to rip from a PSP

Besides that, I have a new video source so this thread is outdated

Final version 6.3 of WinAVI is out and we thought it's a good idea to update this guide so that it contains the proper instructions for the new GUI and features. For those not familiar with WinAVI, let me repeat it's advantages:
- it is very fast! In my computer (AthlonXP 2600+) all the conversions where done between 30 and 55 minutes, depending on the movie lenght. It's probably the one of the faster converters out there.
- it converts to DVD files and not MPEG file. Forget searching for an authoring program and spending another hour to create the DVD files, WinAVI converts directly to DVD files.
- DirectAC3 techology. No need to worry about your AC3 audio and how to preserve it's original quality in the final DVD. WinAVI does it automatically for you.
