MCE – Convert DVR-MS videos to WMV

June 15, 2005

Looking to drop the size of some of your Windows MCE recordings to store them away awhile? The F-Stop Blues has a few notes on getting better results from the WmvTranscoder plug-in, or just junking it all together and using the more nicely integrated DVR2WMV plug-in

If you have a Media Center extender than this is a great way to archive your recorded TV for playback and save some hard drive space. A thirty minute TV show took about an hour to translate at the highest setting available and about 500mb of disk space.

    No combination of intermediate filters could be connected. Exiting program?

    I had that same error when I attempted to run it on my desktop XP box (which doesn’t run media center.)

    The standalone version seems to run on my Media Center box, but the plugin crashes for some reason…

    I’m not sure DVR2WMV is quite ready for primetime…

Got something to say? [privacy policy]
