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.)

Hi @Noath17bell, Welcome to the HP Forum. I grasp that you downloaded movies onto an USB drive, when you try to play them , the ones in MPEG format has both video and audio.but the other formats you get the video but no audio. As this does not appear to be a hardware issue, but a software one please contact Chromebook Help. HP does not support the Chrome operating system but does support the hardware.

ok i got a zen vision by creative and i was wondering how i put movies on it. its probly in the directions but u guys usually know better ways to do things. can anyone help?
 

A:movies to mpeg

Nice choice... I have a Pocket PC and I use. Pocket DVD Studio 3.5 It is fast and has great quality. Here is the web site.

http://www.pqdvd.com/

What format does Creative use? Pocket DVD Studio saves the movies in WMV and AVI. But their other versions save them in different formats. There are many other programs this is just the one I prefer...
*
Just checked and it will work with the Zen Vision..You just put the dvd in the dvd drive, open Pocket DVD Studio and set the settings to the size you want, sound etc...It will shrink the movie down to size so that it can be uploaded to your device.....and it will place it on the desktop all ready to go.

hi there!
can anybody tell me,how i devide mpeg movies in two parts?
i would like to burn one movie on cd(nero burning)but the movie is to big for cd .thanks for help.matrix
 

A:devide movies mpeg

Mpg-1 will burn to cd with nero. The file will be called *.dat.
Some dvd players will play these files and the cd is called
a video cd. You will need a program called TMPGEnc. This
program will do lots of neat things for you including make
mpeg-1 filles to use as video cds. When you use the program
for your request, i.e. splitting large mpeg files into 2 or more
parts .You will use the MPEG tools from the drop down menu
in file @ the top left. The tools option is above the exit in the
dropdown menu. This opens a screen with 5 tags on top and
a "type" box set @ MPEG-1 system. You will need to change
this(with the scroll key) to MPEG-1 video cd. You don't need to
do anything else here. The last tab on top is Merge&Cut.
Click here, a new box appears. You need to change the "type"
from MPEG-1 system to MPEG-1 video cd. On the left are
several options. The top one is add. This will bring up an
explorer screen, in which you will pick your mpeg file to split.
Once you have the file in the merge&cut box, go to the left
bottom. This is the output, across from this on the right is a
browse button, use this to name the new and smaller
MPEG. Name it Spiderman1.mpg or something like that.
I can send you more info, but no room. send message will
return with rest of directions. Allmost finished, ellombris.

I want to record some of my dvd movies to my hdd (mainly AC/DC and 4 seasons of Family Guy) so that I can watch them at will without having to insert the dvd. I'd like to be able to drop the quality some so it won't take up a billion GB's of storage too. I have access to Adobe Premier, so once I get them on my hdd, I can edit them (cut out titles, menu's etc. leaving just the main movies), but I can't capture or import right from the dvd into premiere (but if you know how to do this please tell me!). I can use dvd shrink to copy the movie to my hdd, but then it's in a TS format, which seperates the audio and video, so I can't use it for anything else! I also have the full version of Nero (I believe it's 6.x.x), but I haven't seen anything in there that could help me.

I've checked online for some free programs (including bleepingcomputer.com), but didn't find anything. Well, I didn't see anything that jumped out at me and screamed "hey nooblet, this is the program you need!".

Any help here would be greatly appreciated. As you well know, computers will run 200% faster when listening to AC/DC. Really, they will. It has to be true, I read it on the internet.

Thanks in advance for any help!

A:Record Dvd Movies To Hdd As Mpeg's

Hi Steve.I can tell you a really fast, easy way to do this without conversion but it's illegal and bound to be against the aup policy here. So, here's something else you can do with the software you have.When you use shrink to reduce the movie to main movie files only, it uses the c:\windows\temp folder as a dumping ground. (or whatever you have it set to).Within that folder are the main ts files, an ifo and maybe a few more.These "ts" files are not seperated audio\video as you will see when you get there.If you have the full version of nero, then you have "NeroVision" and Nero Showtime.Open Nerovision and use the "make movie" function.Click the "browse for media" function, (lower left button), navigate to the folder with the ts files.Add the ts files only (leave everything else out as nerovision will create the new ifo itself)and make sure they are listed in numerical order as you add them. (i.e. ts_01, ts_02, etc.)once the files are imported and listed numericly, click the "next" button.When you are prompted wether or not to combine these files as one, click "yes". If you don't combine them then the movie will be broken into pieces.The next couple of steps are no brainers but the second to last step you will see an image of a remote control. Use it to preview the movie before you save it to disk.Once complete, you can use Nero Showtime to view.

I am looking for software that can compress MPEG movies for email purposes.
I just got a digital camera that takes MPEG movies at 30 frames/sec at 640 x 480. I want to be able to email them, but the file size is too big for email. I tried converting them to AVI or MOV format, but the size is still too large for email.
I would like to be able to compress them to a smaller size, so that I can email them.

Please advise which software I should use, and how many frames/sec, resolution size to convert it to?
 

A:Compressing MPEG movies for email

If you have windows ME or XP Windows movie maker which comes with them will do that for you. Just import the film into the programme, drag the film to the film strip, then you can 'save movie' straight away at different sizes. It even has a drop down menu telling you how big/long it will take to e-mail.
It saves it as a seperate file so your original remains untouched.

A:I can't get MPEG movies files to play on Windows Media Player

At a guess, you need the right codecs (k-lite basic, maybe). Alternately, use a media player that doesn't need them (Media Player Classic).

If you select the Videos app from the Metro screen, and then select "my videos", you can choose to view all, movies, tv or personal files.

In my library I have divided my own files into TV and Movies (using Explorer), and can see all of them intermingled when I select "all" or "personal" on the "my videos" screen. However the "movies" or "tv" lists are empty except that I am invited to look at shows in the Xbox video store.

Is it possible to divide my own files or store them in such a way that they can appear in their respective tv or movies lists on the "my videos" screen (and if so, is there a specific format that I need to have them in, so that, for example, I can group episodes of tv programs together into series, and so on) or is it just for movies and tv programs that I have downloaded form the Xbox /Microsoft store?

When you download music or movies it sue UDP protocol only? Or when you download any datas like pdf file is use TCP/IP protocol?

A:When you download music or movies it sue UDP or TCP/IP protocol?

That is correct, TCP requires each packet sent to be acknowledged before the next packet is sent to the client. TCP is used for data and webpages so that information can be recovered if packets are lost. To speed the process up the host will send more and more packets each time to the client reducing the amount of acknowledgements needed. If one packet is dropped then the packet count sent is reduced to maintain stability. This is known as 'Windowing'.



UDP is another Transport protocol where no acknowledgement from the client is received. UDP is typically used for streaming services such as video or VoIP. This is because a packet that is resent would not be needed since the time has already passed when the packet was needed. This also reduces the bandwidth required for running a stream application since less packets are sent overall (No acknowledgments). The most noticeable applications which use UDP to transport packets are DNS requests, video and voice streaming and online multiplayer gaming.


   Note
The ports on each protocol will be different. For example TCP Port 80 (http) is not the same as UDP Port 80

A typical analogy would be:

TCP : "Tell me when you get there"

UDP: "I hope it gets there"

Hope This Helps,
Josh!

It was one of the first Greek films to achieve international recognition (Golden Globe award).

A:Watching movies from laptop to tv

It all depends on what kind(s) of video and audio outputs you have on the laptop and what kind(s) of video and audio inputs you have on the TV.

EDIT: As for showing different things on each screen, that would depend on if your laptop supports dual monitor mode with different information on each screen. Then it would be a matter of how easy it might be to have the DVD player software run in full screen mode on one display.

My laptop has S Video output. My TV has S Video input. I want to play a movie that's on my laptop's hard drive. I plugged the cord into my laptop and into my TV but nothing happens. The movie shows up on the laptop but not the TV.

(I thought it would be easy, since my DVD player was plugged into the TV's S Video. I figured I'd unplug the DVD player and plug that right into my laptop. Didn't happen.)

Any tips?

does anyone know if this laptop can handle HD movies like 720p or 1080p?

i will be streaming them over wireless N
 

A:laptop to play HD movies

HULU? lol

yes I think that that would stream in HD but I would suggest at least 8 Mega Bits per second down stream internet for HD streaming, else you will end up buffering every 10 seconds. If you can't get 8megs, 4 megs will run but you may have to buffer after every break.

Hi,
Ya how come I can't watch my movies on my laptop.
I can on my home computer after I downloaded a program called Videolan, but when I put the same program on my laptop I get an error message saying "Unable to open 'dvd://D"
I have a Pen. 4 Dell Laptop with of course a DVD player, and don't know a whole lot about compters.

I have a laptop with movies that I would like to watch on my television. My TV is a Sony Bravia KDL-46S2000. It has a VGA slot in the back of the TV and the TV's maximum resolution is 1080i.

After I connect the VGA cable from the laptop to the television, what do I do? I dont see anything.

-Thanks in advance
-Sam
 

A:use my tv to watch movies from my laptop...

on the laptop you need to send the signal to the VGA port
to do that usually on laptops you need to press the FN key and then F4 {but the F key may be different - look for a figure like a TV}
each time you press it it will toggle between three setting {not necessarily in this order}
1) Laptop screen only
2) laptop and VGA Port
3) VGA port only

you will also need to link the sound - so a jack plug 2.5mm or 3.5mm depends on what your headphone socket on laptop is - to what ever audio inputs you have TV - probably Phono RCA - coloured red and white for left and right channel

Ok, I have a Toshiba DvD-rom SD-C2502 in my laptop and is skipping all the dvds I play, the skipping is ramdomly and sometimes it skips with audio. I load the disk and after 3 to 5 minutes it starts skipping all the time, and this is on every single movie I try to play. DMA is enabled so I guess that is not it. Is it a problem w/ the soundcard or the videocard configuration (I have an Ati radeon 7500)? I tried cleaning the lens and it didn't worked, I also loaded the movies to different programs like WMP, and WinDVD, but that didn't worked either. Can someone help me with this, I am extremely desperate, please help!
 

A:Help with laptop DVD-drive, is skipping all the movies!

Has this always done this or is this something that has just recently started? Do you have DMA enabled on this drive? Check the properties of the drive in the device manager to find out. If it is not enabled, enable it. If it is enabled you just might have a bad drive. I know that Toshiba does not require any kind of special driver for windoze.

I hooked my laptop up to my Plasma TV via S-video and for the sound, RCA to headphone jack. It works fairly well, but with two issues:

1) The video input is bigger than the TV screen. To explain, when I see my desktop on the TV screen and I move the cursor to the far edges of the screen, the screen scrolls a little bit. The movies play, but they are cropped on the sides. Where or how can I adjust this to make the input from the computer fit the TV screen?

2) The sound is muffled. I don't have a receiver hooked up yet and I tinkered with the sound adjustments in the movie player and on the laptop, but I can't figure out how to make it better. Any ideas?

Thanks, please post your thoughts on these issues.

Hi,

I have a Sony digital video camera that records movies on hi-8 tapes. I wish to view these movies on my Dell Latitude D600 laptop (and possibly record to CD).

How to?

Thanks,

Hi Alisa...

Do you have a cable to connect your camera to your laptop?
