I've been downloading youtube flv videos and trying to convert them to WMV formats. I made some screen shots of the process.
Step 1 - Start the Format Factory
Step 2 - Drag all the files to Format Factory and choose the Format you need.
Step 3 - Checking my Settings. I don't see anything wrong here.
Step 4 - Click Ok
Step 5 - At This point I was testing just one file. I burned the DVD and everything went ok. So I decided to erase the DVD and do the rest of them.
Step 6 - I tried to burn the DVD, and somewhere in the mix something failed.
Step 7 - This is inconvenient, but I had to put all the files into Windows Live Movie Maker, and save it all as one. I would have preferred to have kept them all as individuals so that I could have each file as an individual scene. But there was too many files and I needed to save time.
* Before I tried to burn the DVD I tested the WMV files with Windows Media Player. They all play Ok. They all show up and play ok with Windows Live Movie Maker, and yet something in them is wrong for the Windows DVD Maker. Also there is a strange sound at the end of every WMV file. The strange sound isn't in the original FLV files.
- I like all the options in Format Factory, I just can't understand why I can't seem to get it to always output a wmv that is compatible with windows DVD maker. I had the exact same problem on my windows vista 32 machine. Now I'm having the same problem on a Windows 7 64 bit machine.
