Converting a movie file...

Q: Converting a movie file...


I really searched all the forums here in order to put my thread in the right place, but I didn't find any forum to be accurate for that purpose so I put it here...

To our buisness!

I have a movie file with extension NSV (a legal one of course) and I want to convert it to AVI or MPEG...

so please give me a good program to don that or a tutorial!!!


Preferred Solution: Converting a movie file...

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

I want to convert a 352x240 video file into a full screen 1920x1080 that can be played on my HDTV. Do I need to change the aspect ratio along with the frame size with a converting software? or just the frame size? How do I do this quickly without waiting for the file to convert and wait hours for it to convert?

I was playing my game, Super Smash Bros. Brawl, and saved a replay that I would like to upload to Youtube. Before doing this, however, I have to convert the .bin file on my SD card to a video format (any video format is fine).

I've tried using Google, and many results tell me I should use vcdgear or a combination of Daemon Tools and other assorted programs, but I fear most of these results are also in reference to movie files (so they include .cue files, which are not present in this case--therefore, these results are of no help to me).

Other results have stated that simply changing the extension from .bin to .avi would be enough to be able to upload it, but the extension is not present on these filenames and I don't know how else to change them.

I'm using Windows XP Professional. Thanks in advance for any help.

Edit: I just realized this might be the wrong place for this thread...I can't seem to delete it, so if this is the wrong place for it, I apologize.

Edit 2: Never mind. Apparently Brawl replay data is basic commands and not a video file so it cannot be converted.

i have a question about saving a movie i made.
i took a bunch of videos with my friends and i made a compliliation of the videos with wlmm- i took parts from each video and edited them together. i added captions and a song. i've edited movies before with this, and saved them and they were able to go onto facebook. well this one video i edited and put on facebook, i had to change the file so it was compatible with facebook. i told it to open with easy media player and it changed the file to a vlc file which is compatible with facebook. but when i tried to change my new video to open with easy media player it wont change the file. the file right now is a wlmp file. and when i try to save the movie to my computer, at around 20% it just stalls and wont go anymore. and also it only will save as a wlmp file. my other videos have been fine going on facebook, but this one isnt and i cant figure out why. HELP ME PLEASEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!

A:movie file converting problems. from wlpm to vlc

Sounds like the file is corrupted somehow or you don't have enough disk space.

I can't help further as I don't know the app "wlmm" and I've not seen nor heard of "vlc" files. I know of VLC player, but I've not seen that file extension.

If you record something on your camcorder in HD 1280 x 720 format, I'm assuming you can only play it back on a TV with HD capability (or burn it to a HD quality DVD).

Is there a way you can convert it, reducing the resolution, thereby allowing you to share it with people who can't view movies in HD?

A:Converting a Movie Shot in 1280 x 720

you can't convert it without loss either of picture quality or cropping it.
there are several programs out there that can do the conversion.
vlc media player can do video and audio conversion but remember it will be lossy.

Hey Folks,
I have old home made VHS tapes with no camcorder available. Are 4-Head VCR's on the market to connect good DVD players? What kind of VCR do I buy? Do I buy Blu-Ray or just a regular DVD recorder? What components do you suggest to put together to copy and preserve my old tapes.

I want to buy this equipment at a fair price and what kind of components do yoy need to put all this together?

Is it better to buy a combo player or what do you suggest?

A:Converting Home-Movie VHS Tapes To DVD

The easiest way to do it is get a VHS/DVD recorder. Something like this: http://www.amazon.com/Panasonic-DMR...ef=sr_ob_9?s=tv&ie=UTF8&qid=1280757185&sr=1-9

You could probably find something a little cheaper, like one without a built-in tuner.

Ladies and Gents,

I've just gotten a Flip HD cam. It's a great little thing. The problem is that Windows Movie Maker, the software that came on the computer, will not accept MP4 format. I've tried converting (using Magic Video Converter) to AVI, but all I get is audio without video. So I download codec packs (ffdshow, Divx H.264, etc), with no result. I've got to be doing something wrong.

So, here are my questions:
1. Is there a free movie editing software that will let me play with MP4s, making the whole problem moot?
2. Is there a better file converter? Magic, in addition to not working well, constantly reminds me to pay, which is mildly irritating
3. Is there a better set of codecs? Maybe that's something I'm not doing to activate them?

I'm leaving in a couple of days for a place without internet, where I'll stay and (try to) put together some great videos. But I've got to get this up and running beforehand. I'm only semi computer-literate (limited to big shiny icons and unadvanced preference menus). The people of this site have saved my ass from a number of computer ailments before, and Google brings so much conflicting information on the issue I'm not sure where to start. Can you help me?

UPDATE: MP4-AVI converters seem to work fine -- I can play the converted AVIs in Windows Media Player, but still no image in Movie Maker. WTF?

A:Windows Movie Maker / Converting MP4s

VLC player is able to convert video files, and it has support for MP4 so in theory it should convert MP4's. I don't know cause I never tried. But VLC player is free and stable so you can't really go wrong. Alternatively, you might look at Virtual Dub and Virtual Dub Mod. They are advanced, open source video manipulating utilities, but I don't know if they are still updated and have support for mp4's.

Hi there,

I have been unable to import any of my video files (in MPG4 format) in Windows Movie Maker. I read an old thread here that there was a converter that can be downloaded and it coverts the file to AVI. I ran the recommended file (mp4cam2avi.exe), converted and imported the new AVI file successfully. However, only the audio works, not the video.

Do you have any recommendations on a solution for this? I have Windows Vista.

I am creating some slideshow scenes to import to DVD Maker from Live Movie Maker.

Each scene starts with a 'title' frame so it would be easy to identify on a dvd menu. I have done all the 'scenes' and all but two saved correctly as .wmv files with the title frame showing as the thumbnail for the file. The fifth scene did not use the title frame but the first photo and the last scene actually skipped to the ninth frame instead (neither will work to identify the photos in that scene for my dvd menu).

The scenes are different sizes - that doesn't seem to matter since smaller and larger ones are saving the way I want. I keep looking for a 'glitch' but can't find anything different between the ones that saved correctly and the ones that didn't.

I used the same camera so all the photos are the same - I am using the default settings in Live Movie Maker so all the settings are the same.

Any ideas?

Why would Live Movie Maker use the first photo rather than the first frame? Did I press a key that set that up?

I tried starting the save with the cursor at the beginning or at the end - it jumps to the beginning each time. I tried those photos by using just one photo with one title frame - that didn't work, I added two title frames - that did work, but when I added more photos it jumped the the ninth frame which had a title frame in front of it.???

By the way, I did upload the file into dvd maker to see if it showed the titl... Read more

I have a valid .wmv file that I need to put into a movie maker project. It plays fine in media player.

When I attempt to import it into a project, I receive a message, saying that
<blockquote>The file C:\Documents and Settings\...\My Videos\russian.wmv is not indexed and cannot be imported.</blockquote>

I have verified that the indexing service is turned on, and even left my computer idle for extended periods, because my settings for the indexing service say that indexing occurs during idle periods.

I have the file set to allow itself to be indexed.

I am not sure whatelse to do. The only other strange behavior which I cannot explain is that fact that when I view my videos folder in thumbnail view, only this .wmv does not get a thumbnail. I am not sure exactly what to do. Any help is appreciated!

A:friend cant turn movie maker file into movie

They told you to adjust the page-file size, which should solve the problem really!
An 11MB file is really nothing, and should fit in a normal pagefile without any problems.
Some PCs have a small pagefile of 10MB on the C-drive and a larger one on another partition/drive. That would then coincide with her problem.
In a managed pagefile, the size is as big as needed.
You can try and set it to MIN 512MB and MAX 768MB, see how that goes.

Ask her also to try 'Save as [different file-name].....' instead of 'Save'

So I made a montage with Windows Movie Maker, however it simply won't save the movie file, although it will save the project. I've never encountered with problem with my other montages.
Seeing some other questions on these forums I checked my amount of ram, and ended some processes to increase it, currently I'm at 572M/5210 M (Commit Charge), Fluctuating between 6-15% computer usage, and 2.79 GHz, 3.25 GB of Ram. This is with google chrome, task manager, and WMM open.
To check if it wasn't the montage itself I made 2 others, one of the same length, and one about 8 seconds long, both of them caused an error that caused WMM to close immediatly, although it appeared the 8 second long one was going to save. The error message says something went wrong, but the message after it doesn't save is the usual, check if the files are still there ( they are ) and check if you have enough memory (I do).

Have a 6K .clp file which I can't open, Can .clp files be converted to Word2000 format? If not, what can I read it with?

A:Converting a .clp file to a Word 2000 .doc file?

Well, it appears that it could be one of the following file types:

You searched for file extension: .clp

Clipart GraphicProgram: QUATTRO PRO
Clipboard fileProgram: MS WINDOWS
Compiler Script (Clip List)Program: CLIPPER 5

So that depends.

You can always try, from Word, File-Open. Change the files of type to "recover text from any file" and try opening the file.

Don't forget to change the file types back to Word docs after you've used that file type or you'll forget and be in trouble next time you open a file.

These are the instructions handed to me:

1. Download VCF-to-23andMe. The two scripts in this directory require Python 3.

2. First, run the data_to_db.py script using your VCF file as input. This generates the genome.db file:

> python3 data_to_db.py input.vcf.gz vcf genome.db

3. Then run db_to_23.py script using the genome.db file as input. This produces a file in the 23andMe format:

> python3 db_to_23.py genome.db blank_v3.txt 23andMe.txt

So, I go on command prompt and tried copy pasting the 1st command and I got a genome.db file but when I copy paste the 2nd command line (the one involving db_to_23.py) nothing happens. Youre supposed to start off with a vcf file and 2 python scripts to convert it. Im not sure how to do this.

All I have are a VCF file and 2 python scripts. If someone could describe the process from a fresh start to how I would convert it to 23andMe then that would be helpful.

Just a technical maneuvering issue.

A:converting .avi file

For video to play on most standalone DVD players it has to be converted to mpeg2 and authored, specs are here: http://www.videohelp.com/dvd The exception to this is that some DVD players will play Divx encoded discs or mpeg's burned as data discs. That really depends on the player.

Final quality depends on many things like your source, the process you use, the encoder.... Lot's of variables. There is no best method, you have to take into account what you have and where you're going with it.

Hello Techguy Forum,

I am hoping someone here can help me. Here is my situation.

My Chinese wife has a neat little audio device that she was given that lets her listen to Chinese preaching in her own language. The device has literally hundreds if not thousands of files on an SD card. I opened it up and tried to extract the files hoping that they were in .mp3 format hoping she could put these audio files in her own mp3 player as the device has a horrible interface and no way of knowing what file is being played besides going one-by-one.

But the files ended up being .jrc. I've never heard of this kind of file and have searched and searched but have found very little on this and nothing about .jrc as an audio file.

Is there anyone who knows anything about this or how to go about converting such a file into an mp3?

==> I tried to upload one of the files that I copied of the SD card to practice on but I got an 'upload error'. It may be too big of a file.

Any suggestions?

Thank you so much.
