:-D hey appeatingthoughts!
The easiest way to convert between avi and wmv has to be the STOIK video converter. Quickly and easily convert your movies and it has a ton of compression options. This is what I use when I need to convert a wmv or avi file, and I have never had any problems.
Here’s a link to the site:

:D don’t worry about it. This happened to me the first few times. The trick is to get the perfect compression settings. (those little boxes with the drop down arrows that have the long list of options.) For video, go with . this will keep it looking the same. As for audio, I’m not really sure, I would just go with the one that looks the best the first time, and see if it worked good. Hope this helps. :-D

Janitor, lets also remember that the Hardware and Software forum is relatively new, and that some of the newb’s will take some time to readjust. That said, I’m sure Wanderer will move it later. 8)

Oh and apperingthoughts, you could also use Windows Movie Maker, if your running windows Me or later it should be on your comp already.

Here is a link to Windows Movie Maker http://www.microsoft.com/windowsxp/movi … maker2.asp

According to Microsoft:

Minimum Computer Requirements
Microsoft Windows XP Home Edition or Windows XP Professional
A 600 megahertz (MHz) processor, such as an Intel Pentium III, Advanced Micro Devices (AMD) Athlon, or equivalent processor
128 megabytes (MB) of RAM
2 gigabytes (GB) of free hard disk space
An audio capture device (to capture audio from external sources)
A DV or analog video capture device (to capture video from external sources)
An Internet connection (to save and send a movie to the Web or to send a movie as an attachment in an e-mail message)

That’s for the new one, Sotw. If he has the what I mentioned earlier as an OS, then he already has the old version of WMM on his comp, and it will run fine. :roll

Thanks for pointing that out, but I still consider myself the Master of Wmm 1 &2. I can make do everything except draw lightsabers and jump over the moon. :)

But, if you do have Xp, appering, then you should upgrade, the new one is much much better. ;)

Alright, I’m gonna do this with one of my AVI movies as I’m typing it. Open STOIK. Choose the import file. Change the output file type to WMV. Choose an output file. Don’t change anything in rendering options. Change the widows media profile to probably ‘Video for LAN, cabel modem, or xDSL(100 to 768 kbps)’. Go down to the bottom and press START. Thats it. finish. caput.

Oh, and Yolego, I didn’t know there was another version of wmm. I just got a new computer with XP. You think it’s got the new version or should I download the other one? What I should really ask is what are some new features in the new wmm that are different from the old one? WMM is what I basically use to put my flics together. Although I recently got the 4.0 version of VideoWave…
