  1. I just reinstalled Windows 8 on my system and am in the process of reinstalling all my apps. I had originally installed Easy VHS2DVD back when I had Windows 7 installed and then upgraded to Easy VHS2DVD Plus when I moved to Windows 8. Now when I run a new installation I'm getting an error message that a Directx 9 .dll is missing. Sure enough, Windows 8 doesn't have the file nor does the Easy VHS2DVD Plus media that I have. Anyone gotten around this one before?

    Editing Mpg Files Created In Easy Vhs To Dvd 3

    Thanks for the tips and help. I'll look into Creator Suite as it sounds like it should work for me.

    Editing Mpg Files Created In Easy Vhs To Dvd 3

    I'm generating the .mpg files from VHS2DVD3. I'm capturing some 2 hour Sony Video 8 tapes. On each tape I've got sections of vacation footage and family footage. Ultimately, I want to pull all the vacation footage off and create a set of 'just vacation' DVDs. The same with the family footage. Maybe I need to invest in a more robust piece of software to do this?

    Editing Mpg Files Created In Easy Vhs To Dvd 3

    You know, I hadn't considered that. It didn't appear to be 'robust' enough for what I was hoping to do. I want to be able to cut portions of video out from a capture and then ultimately reassemble them into another one. For example, I want to be able to pull all the Christmas videos out and then create a single Christmas video to burn to DVD. Is this possible in VHS2DVD 3?
  6. Has anyone tried to use Microsoft Movie Maker to load and edit an .mpg file created by Easy VHS to DVD 3? I loaded my file us and I'm not getting any audio or video. Curious as to what others are using to edit their files.

    Correct Sequence Of Recording

    Thanks for the answer to my post. I hadn't thought about the Pause button! That should be fine for my use. Now if you can just find a magic way to make all my old recordings High Definition! Man, I hadn't realized the grainy resolution of those old Handycam videos. They seemed pretty good for the time but now I feel like I'm not wearing my glasses! Thanks again for the help.
  8. I'm starting to record some old videos from a Sony Handycam cassettes. I'm getting mixed results when I try to record. If I tell Easy VHS to DVD to Record Video and then press the play button on the Sony, Easy VHS to DVD seems to get stuck in a Search for Video signal mode for a few seconds while I hear the audio of the video playing. Eventually, a few seconds later, the video appears and I can click on the Record button. Is there a best way to do this so as not to miss the first few seconds of video?

    Looking for ideas to fix bad audio

    I'm capturing great video from my old VHS tapes but on some tapes the audio is fairly tinny and thin. It gets so annoying that I can't bear to watch. I realize the root cause is probably the individual tapes themselves. I wonder if anyone has dealt with this and if so, have they been able to make any improvments at all?

    Any way to "edit" out audio "hum"?

    I got around my problem, sort of, by running the audio of the DVDs through my LCD TV instead of my Bose home theater. The TV doesn't exhibit the hum for some reason. I tried grounding the VCR to my PC but no luck there. I did buy one of those ground loop isolators from Radio Shack; I'll see if that helps me too.

    Any way to "edit" out audio "hum"?

    I couldn't find the Edit Audio option in VideoWave. I right-clicked on the .avi file I added in but couldn't see that option under any of the menus. I'll try extracting the audio and see how the LP and Tape assistant works.

    Any way to "edit" out audio "hum"?

    I don't have the VCR hooked up to my TV currently, I could try that and see how it does. Thanks for the grounding tip. I'll give that a try and see how that does. Never thought about that one. I ran across some audio editing software on the web ( at www.magix.com ) that seemed to look hopeful. I thought if I could somehow edit the .avi file before I burned it to DVD I could reduce the hum. I hadn't seen the VideoWave tools; glad their in there. I'll give them a try and see how they do! Thanks for the tips!

    Any way to "edit" out audio "hum"?

    I've got an older VCR with just a single Audio-out RCA jack, no Audio Left and Audio Right. In setting up my recording, I got this brilliant idea to by a Y-splitter from Radio Shack so I would have 2 channels of audio even though it was mono. My recordings come out fairly good. The video is good but the audio has a noticeable "hum". I'm guessing it's because I'm using RCA connections, not the best in the world or maybe it's because I'm splitting them. I've been digging into Easy VHS to DVD to see if there's a way to edit the audio to remove the hum but there doesn't seem to be any way to do this. Does anyone have any ideas on how I might clean up the audio in my recordings?
