I have w7 ultimate, with MCE. I sometimes record a tv show and although it takes a time, can burn it to DVD that plays in my other DVD player, by using the MCE to burn / convert the TV. I wanted to edit out adverts, so I downloaded Windows Live Movie Maker, and managed to edit adverts out. Then came the problem. I have not found how to convert the edited tv show and burn it to a DVD that can be viewed on my other DVD player. I tried Roxio copy and convert, but it did not recognise the .wlmp file. Is there any free software to do this? I am aware of VideoRedo but I need this relatively infrequently.
rdave13. Thanks; trying it now- I think it has to be saved to the PC HD first rather than straight to a DVD. I do not understand why TV recording etc on a PC is so much more complicated than on my DVD recorder(s) where I can create chapters of the adverts than delete them.
It will save as WMV format. Try DVD flick. It's a free program to convert files to play on DVD players. Having problems with BT line and internet drops so I can't reply often. Engineer supposed to come tomorrow.
Thanks again. I will study the whole matter in the next few days. The DVD was playing at about double speed so maybe that was why the sound was not on, but I need to do more homework on the whole subject!!
rdave13. Update. I had another look at WLMM and my project. Whilst editing out the adverts on the TV show, I ran the file at quite high speeds (x2;x16 etc) At the end I think I left one of these in the speed box when closing. I have had another look and re saved it a x1 speed an the sound is back. I am now using Windows DVD maker to burn to disk and will report back when finished. The burn seems to take a long time. Thanks again for your input!
