Try looking for a programme called “Avanced WMA workshop”- you can get a trial version free. Or use Something like Premiere/ movie maker? reply

Install the latest version of the Codecs Installation Package:

Also, open TMPGEnc and go to Option>Environmental setting>VFAPI plug-in and give 'DirectShow Multimedia File Reader' a priority of 4. reply

use WinAVI converter, its by far the fastest converter around and works with every format to every format provided you can play the file in windows media player (you need to have the right codecs) download a trial version then go to asta-la-vista.com and search for a serial number, theres one for 'alastair dalrymple' that works and gives you full access to all the programs features.
Happy Converting! reply

Dear Ultima 160:

I did everything you said. It seemed like it was working, but every time I pressed “encode”, it produced a file with 0 kb.

I tried converting .wmv to several types of .mov or .mpg.

Any tips? What am I doing wrong? reply
