Weekend Q&A: How do I convert other video files to WMV?


This week, I received a question that my home video / prosumer side enjoys: “What software should I use for converting [name of video format here] to Windows Media Video files?”

 

At home, I use TMPGEnc 3.0 XPress and Riverpast’s VideoCleaner for doing transcodes between a variety of different formats. They’re both excellent products, and I like TMPGEnc as it has good editing and video correction utilities built in. A popular option for professional video conversion is Autodesk Cleaner XL (which I think used to be Media Cleaner Pro).

 

A good resource for doing conversions, video formats and tools, I really like the http://www.videohelp.com/ site. It’s well organized and has links to just about every piece of video software out there.

    why not try to use ConvertMovie?
    With It, you just open any of your video files, select a new video format, and – save your video! ConvertMovie does the rest! To convert your videos even faster and easier, save your settings as a preset and simply select it next time.
