I am looking to edit a home video that i recorded with a sony handycam dcr-dvd105 camcorder. I tried to use windows movie maker but i couldnt figure out how to get the file on the hard drive. Sooo... i used DVD Dcrypter to get the movie on the hard drive. Now, the movie maker tells me the file is not supported. So I have several questions. Does anyone know of a completely free program that will convert files? Im not looking for one that is just a trial and only does five minutes worth of converting unless you pay for it...COMPLETELY FREE. If not this, does someone know a movie editing program that is also FREE that will support a dvd recorded off of this type of camera? I dont mind if the program is illegal...as long as it will work. Please help.

Hi computer202.
You'll want to convert the dvd files to mpeg for editing
One free conversion tool you already have (DVDD) see demultiplexing tutorial here.
Another free one is VOB2MPG (requires .net framework2 be installed first)

I dont mind if the program is illegal


We do. No can help you there.

Thanks for the help, I wasnt using the decrypter that way so I'll see if it works. Sorry about the illegal thing...I was just frustrated and desperate. Thanks again

Windows Movie Maker Does support Mpeg - 2 or any Mpeg for that matter so you either have to convert it to WMV or AVI

Good Luck

I used this Program a couple of 6-8 times. Its very helpful although its shareware with a free tiral. I bought the whole version. (Note: the trial version MAY leave watermarks.

Legend has it that... If you put an AOL disc the opposite way and play it you can hear devilish music... Even worse if you put it the right way... IT INSTALLS AOL!
