Newbie needs help

Question

Newbie here would appreciate any help. I did check the Help file and scanned this forum before posting.

 

First, I'm looking for help converting my avi files into mpg files to save disk space. I have Roxio Easy Media Creator 9, but I can't seem to get it to do the trick. Am I missing something, or is there some other software I can download to do the trick?

 

Second, I want to be able to convert a non-copyright dvd into an mpg file that I can later edit. How do I get it onto my disk drive in mpg form.

 

Any help is appeciated.

 

Thanks.

Put the avi file in VideoWave and then output it to a mpg2 for DVD best quality file. Use the film reel icon above the preview.

 

The short way is to just copy the VOB files to your hard drive. They are essentially mpg2 files. The little longer (and better way) is to use Easy Media Capture to capture the DVD to your hard drive.

Thank you very much sknis.

 

Would you please tell me why capturing is better than just copying?

 

Thanks in advance.

Some people just have more luck capturing especially if they capture to an avi file. Try both; use the one that works best for you.
