mpegs and avis??

Re: mpegs and avis??

VirtualDub can open an MPEG video and save it as an AVI.

VirtualDub is a freeware program for capturing video, compressing video, and doing basic editing of video. More info about it is on the web page. VirtualDub is a Windows program. If you’re using a Mac or Linux you’ll have to look elsewhere.

Email me if you have questions using VirtualDub or start a thread in “Just Conversation” asking for help. There are at least a couple of people in the forum there who are familiar with using VirtualDub.

http://www.doom9.org has some great guides on encoding, skip the bit about dvd ripping, and just follow it from where you load the file into virtualdub.

[Edit] Of course, I’m assuming you want to use a compressed format AVI. If not, just ignore :slight_smile:

VirtualDub rocks! I use it all the time!

Joe,

thanks a lot guys! it worked great.
