  • 1. Movies Are Skipping!
    Why is it that when Im playing a movie using quicktime, and even windows media (ex a music video clip downloaded straight from the net) they are skipping. You cant make out any of the sounds from the videos cause its constantly echoing! Whats wrong
  • 2. continuation of my prob. recording from tv
    my tv and my notebook is already connected via s-video cable. I can watch the notebook screen on my tv. but how can I record what I watch on tv. Would I need an extra cable to connect between cable box (scart socket) and notebook (s video or some other) I have no idea?
  • 3. Video to CD
    I presently only have a CD writer with my CD Rom drive, but I'll be shortly getting a DVD writer, I'm however looking for advice to do with the two devices. I have stacks of family videos that I would love to transfer to CD format. How do I go about it? What kind of software is advised? What kind of cabling and from where to where? How do I go about just having the CD popped into the machine and just needing to press play and the motion simply pressing play as opposed to having to have a degree in computing to play the thing. Make it idiot proof, not that that'll help but it sounds good. If possible, is there someone out there that can give me the same advice for the DVD format? If I'm at the wrong place, my sincerest apologies, can you advise a link or where I should go. Please keep it clean. tommyglassford AT It won't keep the scammers away forever, but it might make it a bit hard for them.
  • 4. Analog Video Card for Windows XP Movie Maker
    In an article on this website a writer mentioned that an Analog Video Card ($50) was all that was necessary to get Movie Maker up and running when connected to a VCR. I have an ADS Instant DVD connected to the VCR and can run (somewhat) their versions of transfers to the hard disk and then to a CD...very difficult. But Movie Maker does not recognize the "device" and thus doesn't connect. No one at any store I have been to knows what I am talking about. Do you have any experience/knowledge about his subject? Thanks.
  • 5. Bit Rate

Movie Maker won't edit VOB files..... WinDVD Creator, PowerDirector etc 
will.  Or you can convert the VOB files to something WMM will read.

1.Screen capture won't capture certain things (Office 2007 file menu

I'm trying to create some custom tutorial videos for Office 2007 using WME's 
Screen Capture, and I'm running into a small but annoying issue: for some 
reason it refuses to capture the Microsoft Office Button menu (the new File 
menu). When I playback my video capture, I can see my cursor moving there and 
even clicking on the button (it turns brown), yet the menu doesn't show. I 
can even pick something from the menu (e.g. Word Options) and that will 
appear, but no trace of the menu.

I figure it's because the menu is a different "type" of "image"...but after 
playing for hours with all the settings (even using WM PowerToy), I just 
can't seem to make WME "see" it. Any idea why, and if there is a solution?

2.WMP will not play mpeg files captured with PixelView Video Capture Card

Since the VideoMate TV/Composite/S-Video capture card I had on my PC
under XP failed under Vista, I had to replace it by PixelView PlayTV
Pro3 (SAA7130). The installation was smooth and with a bit of
round-about search, I discovered that the Source of the input video (TV
or Composite or S-Video) cannot be selected by any Menu of the
PixelView's software called TV Expert but by clicking the Source button
on the Remote to be used for the usual TV functions. This is the first
software  I have seen using a Remote button for selecting the Source
Unfortunately, even though PixelView declares boldly on the pack that
it is compatible with Vista, Windows Media Player refuses to play (it
closes down at the click of the Play command)  the mpeg-2 files captured
with the card. 
Did Microsoft test the card before giving it their official Vista
compatibility recognition? Or is the TV Expert software not observing
the standard specifications for mpeg-2 capture? Or is there any hidden
button like the Source button which will make them play on the Windows
Media Player?
If not, I will have to write off anothe chunk of expenditure in the
name of learning to live with Vista.

freddy, thanks for offering a possible solution but I don't think that's it. 
 The DVD/CDRW drive in my laptop shows the same region ("Not Selected") as 
the one I'm having trouble with, but my laptop can read and display the files 
and directories from the same disks that the desktop cannot.  Any other
