Download from BBC i player to your pc

Use Windows Movie maker to import video

Drag it to the time line

Under 3 Finish movie Select Save to my computer

Call it what you will

Press OK

Click show more settings

Select other settings

Scroll to DV-AVI

Click next and it will be saved as an AVI file at the location you chose

have tried to import to WMM and it wont allow as it says that it is protected by drm. Anyone got any other updates to this querry.

I dint think it was possible.
Also arent there legal implications?

Sorry but when I did the above as outlined it worked

Have to agree with jimbob61, have just tried it with WMM and it wont allow it.

Have just checked again and realised it was a lead in short clip that WMM let me convert to AVI. Tried it just now with a 'real' program and get the DRM message and failure to import into WMM

Sorry all -- my mistake !!
