Digital Media Converter (DeskShare) will do a good job of conversion. It's ~US40, but it handles about 95% of all conversions, and will do so to DV-AVI Type II, provided that one has the necessary CODECs (to work from the original format) on their system. Their support forum is at:
You might want to have a look there, to see if it can handle the exact files that you want.
Can I infer from your message about DMC that it only uses the DirectX filters already on your system? That it doesn't install any of its own codec nonsense?
I will check it out if that's the case - thanks for the tip!
To my *knowledge* it only uses the installed system CODECs. Only tip to this was when I added Lagarith, HuffYuv and Black Magic CODECs to the system, they suddenly were available in DMC. Now, this does not prove that it only works with system CODECs (it might have some of its own), but these three were not available, until I installed them.
Over the years, it's proved to be a good program. Yes, it does choke on occasion, but usually very stable, simple and I've yet to have a converted file (unless there was gross OE) not work in the intended app.
So far, 99% of my work with it has been going to DV-AVI's. It has been virtually flawless, even with some odd CODECs in the original files.
I have only tried a handful of others, but have not seen any that I'd rather have to replace DMC.
Thanks, Hunt. Sounds like a new tool for the shed.
visual hub works for me. I am not as concerned with quality loss since as of now I am only using the videos on the web.
