Re: Where do you download your movies?

Scorpious,
 
Yeah, but when ever I use AVC, it doesn't give me the option of converting to wmv, only to avi?? 
How do you get it to convert to wmv?
BTW - I'm using the free trail version...

Re: Where do you download your movies?

handbrake.fr

which is funny cause the site is all in english

My favorite feature is that I can tell it to make a 500 mb file and it will adjust the bitrate and everything accordingly.  also you can queue up a bunch of jobs and then tell the computer to shut down one go to stand by.

I was able to get the entire lord of the rings trilogy (extended edtion) down to 2.2 gb and it looks great.

Re: Where do you download your movies?

[ Edited ]
it's the last one in the drop down box.. it says customized WMV movie (.Wmv). just leave the settings the way they are, they work fine. i have the free version, not the trial.  http://www.any-video-converter.com/products/for_video_free/ . that might be the reason. the free version work perfect. i compared the free version and the pay version and it looks like it just has a few more perks that we don't need, like converting them to ipod and zune files. hope this helps.

Re: Where do you download your movies?

okay i think i am losing my last marble...since i got this sansa..view 16 gb (i have a pc with xwindows)- i have been following all the leads herein...

 

first i tried downloading from bittorent a movie - the matrix...i then tried sansa converter...no go...i then tried anyconverter - no go....

 

then i tried downloading my own vid...abyss which now i put thru the download rip - dvdshrink and then dvd clone, = bad media would not transfer to sansa...so then i took and used any coonverter...nothing...then i used dvd HANDBRAKE...which everyone swears takes commercial movies - no go...so then i put it thru the anyconverter...and nothing...

 

so then i picked up some dvd at the library...no go...

 

then i tried using something smaller...like a utube video i like and used dvd anyconverter and that didnt work...

 

i ran out of ideas...

Re: Where do you download your movies?

Videos/T.V. Shows: Limewire (I use Sansa Media Converter to convert and transfer them to the view)

 

Movies: Actual DVD's (I rip the DVD's that I own by using DVD Shrink 3.2, and then convert them,

using CloneDVDmobile)

Re: Where do you download your movies?

promised planet i am sending out an sos:-)),

 

was looking at this page and thought u might be able to solve my problemo...i have a 09 version..

 

i had HUGE problems downloading movies first using sansa view converter, than any converter, until someone told me about dvd shrink + dvd clone...tho i did manage to download in only 7 hours:-)) an unbox movie, the THOMAS CROWN affair..yesterday...

 

so i took my movie PRACTICAL MAGIC (that i bought) and i did all the above for like 5th time and this time i noticed that it did download but that i was not SEEING IT...i clicked accidentally on the EMPTY space above my music vids all titled and it went straight to the movie...THERE WAS NO TITLE...

 

2 THINGS wre happening...i couldnt name it...and i couldnt find the others that probably are hidden in there as well since my MEMORY IS SHOWING 2GB left after only imputting 2 movies and 22 songs and 4 music vids - 8 pics...i mean 14 GB gone.. i cant find the memory file allocation on sansa or pc...wierd!

 

INVISIBLE FILES...

 

and now I THOUGHT  i will try to download another movie which i labeled CONTACT MP4 after i did the dvd clone and when I TRIED To enter it...the file said I ALREADY HAD A FILE THERE (NONAME) WOULD I want to TRANSFER OVER IT...not!

 

WHAT can i do to recuperate memory - delete hidden files if they are not showing anywhere on pc or sansa...?

 

and HOW CAN I CONTINUE IMPUTTING MOVIES IF IT DOESNT RECOGNIZE THAT THEY ARE DIFFERENT, AND ...

HOW CAN I LABEL THEM SO THAT I SEE THEM ON THE SANSA?

 

 

gratefully - 2 left feet debra
