My husband gave me an Emerson Dvd recorder for my Christmas and I have recorded our VHS tapes to DVD. Now I want to put some of each video DVD into a program and make a graduation video to music for our son's highschool graduation. We have Microsoft Movie Maker and Adobe Premiere Video 6.5 but they won't read my discs. I can play them on Windows Media Player though. I can select them using *all files* put when I click on the icons they tell me that they are 'unsupported". Am I just out of luck? Using -R Dvds and recording in Video Mode. I think the format is Vidco-ts\vts Thank you!!!

Do you have Vob files in your video_ts folder?

I think you will need to merge the vob files together using FileMerger, which can be downloaded from http://www.doom9.org/.

Make sure you just merge the movie files and none of the menu's.

If you then rename the vob file to mpg, adobe may open it.

If not use vobedit to demux the video and audio stream from the vob file, if you want to merge them back into a standard mpg (vobs are really just mpg files) then use bbmpg which can also be downloaded from doom9 or herehere which also has the xp patch for bbmpeg. Alternatively get tmpg from here which also has some good multiplexing tools. Doom9 has the demo of V2, the previous site has the last freeware version.

Once you have mulitplexed mpg you should be able to get it into adobe.

You would have to play the DVD you made on a stand-alone DVD player and route the video thru a video capture device then on to MS Movie-maker (after being reformatted by the capture device). There are 2 types of capture devices: a capture device card into PC slot or a stand-alone device that sits on your work station and connects from your DVD player (or TV or VCR) thru a USB port to your computer.

I have done this recently-opted for stand-alone device--about $100.00.

Why we are not able to route the outut of an "onboard" DVD player onto MS movie maker (or another video editing program) angers me for sure. I'm sure that this is based on an agreement between MS, The PC maker and Hollywood. They are working feveriously to maintain their $$$ advantage (ie. Friends actors getting 1 million dollars per episode).

Suggest you google for more info--"video capture" :flowers: :thumbsup:

Buying a video capture card seems a very over the top way of getting the data. Merging the vob files is a far easier solution.
