Videowave 9 crashes when browsing for video files


Matthew Norman

Question

In common with a lot of other users my Videowave 9 crashes.

 

For me this happens when I browse to a directory containing .ts files downloaded from my Humax PVR. I can't even bring the file into my Production.

 

I want to convert the .ts file to .mpg.

 

I am running Xp (SP2) on a 3.2GHz Pentium 4, 1 Gb of Ram. Graphics is GeForce FX 5500 and driver is up to date.

Have reinstalled Easy (!) Media Creator a number of times.

 

Surprising really because Womble and the free HDTVtoMPG work fine.

I was not talking about the thumbnail view in Windows explorer.

 

In windows explorer the directory where my video files are is set to "detail view", however, VideoWave still insists on trying to display the very helpful, but extremely time consuming, icons.

 

And before you inform me that I can switch Videowave to "detail view", I have already done so.. all that happens is that the helpful thumbnail/icon is so small that it is even less use.

Detail View in VW or MyDVD is the same as it is in Explorer, little icons and lots of printed details…

 

This is exactly what you said you wanted to see!

I have found occasionally that Videowave closes without warning when navigating to a folder after clicking Add photo/video. If the explorer is open at a folder that has a lot of video or picture files in it you will notice in the right hand pane that Videowave works its way through those and changes the icons and (in details view) fills in the file attributes. The instability seems to occur if I navigate to another folder before it has finished analyzing the files in the previous folder. Waiting a few seconds avoids the problem for me.

 

 

Problem does seem to be caused by the icons being changed. And indeed, problem is worse with a directory with lots of video files in it... and worse still if the video files are large (around 1 gig).

 

Does anyone know how to turn off the pointless icon-changing feature. I know which file I want to burn/convert, and I don't need a little thumbnail to show me!

The 'thumbnail' view is a Windows setting - you can change that in the folder by goint to 'view and shift it from thumbnails to icons

VideoWave should be able to accept .ts. It lists .ts files as one of the types it can accept. Your PVR can't capture as mpeg2? My Hauppauge does, but I don't use it anymore since I have all of my VHSc tapes captured through it.
