Convert your downloaded movies and TV shows to DVD

Saturday, November 29th, 2008

Just a quick note on something we came across recently and are now using - ConvertXtoDVD from VSO Software. This simple program allows you to convert heaps of formats (AVI, Mpeg, Mpeg4, MP4, AVI, WMV, DV, Divx, Mk) straight to DVD – and automatically creates the title and chapters for you. You can even combine multiple files together in order on the DVD. Its worth buying – no more watching your favourite downloaded TV shows on your computer screen…

MCE / Vista Premium Movie playback codecs

Monday, January 28th, 2008

Just as an add on to the MCE post – to make sure we were able to playback everything a few bits of software were installed -
Divx (most downloaded videos use this)
K-Lite Mega Codec Pack (has all the codecs to play movie and song files eg. XVid)
DVD Region Free (so the Media Centre will play ALL DVDs not just the local region ones)
