Help With Video File Conversion

So what’s the first thing I try when I have a video file that won’t convert using Windows Media Encoder 9? I examine what video and audio codec was used to create that troublesome file. To do this, I use a program called GSpot which will give me the attributes of a video file. If you’re interested in knowing how to use GSpot, you can review my page called Determining Video Attributes which shows a few examples of different file formats and explains what you can do to get the necessary codecs for video conversion.

    Great blog, helped me a lot. Do you think there is any possibility you could post a guide to get download and convert youtube videos into a format the first generation zunes can play? [same with dvd’s?]
