I found this excellent file converter that can convert just about any video to anything. Like a .flv to an .asf or AVI etc. It's called SUPER
http://gpl.download.free.fr/S6Kg1.html

It seems pretty flexible so far. I've been using Riva and Dr. Divx. This one's good too.

I went to watch a WMPlayer embedded video of the weather today. I got picture and no sound. Went to my wife's laptop, picture and sound there. So I uninstalled this SUPER video conversion software and the streaming internet video sound came back. It did not affect regular .wmv files, mp3 files etc. but it did stop embedded windows media from playing from websites.
Sorry, I'd stay away from this one, bad advice, (unless you don't mind uninstalling it when you get done converting).
This could be a Win2kPro anomoly, XP might not give the same result.

I use this one:

http://www.winavi.com/

seems to work great and no problems on win2000 or xp. I get .avi files from the production company and convert them to wmv files.

It seemed to work just fine except now those embedded WMV's have no sound. Can't watch a weather forcast. I removed Super and the sound came back. But if I just double click on a WMV it does work. It's only on webpages with the embedded player that I noticed it. I sent a note to support, but the email came back, addressee unknown. Hmm.

I was thinking if it plays locally ok, it might be that the coec it is using to compile is a nonstandard one not available on the client machine listening to it?

If thats the case running it through another video convertor may solve the problem. Of course it may cause other problems too Smile..

I got this neat camcorder for xmas and it saves everything to a sd card in AVI format, but when I try to edit the files with pinnochle or video edit magic they just hang on "making the movie" so I found that if I convert the camara's AVI first to any other format then import it into the editor it works great. Just takes forever to conver a 3 hour video file Sad... But is still easier then video capturing with the video capture card from an analog tape.

There is no problem with SUPER, it's your codecs. Go to http://www.free-codecs.com/ and get the latest mega codec pack.

Don't worry, I put that link on my own website. It's not a codec problem that I can tell, because when I remove Super, the audio comes back on the audio portion of streaming websites. You know, like going to a TV station's webpage and clicking on the weather forecast?
Locally, all files play fine on the PC, it's just the internet feeds. It is an excellent file converter if you don't mind loosing webcast audio.

I downloaded the lastest version of Super today and it did not create the issue I ran into before with loss of sound on embedded web broadcasts using win2k. This is definitely a full featured, multipurpose video file conversion program. One of the few that will convert a .flv (flash video) to a .wmv, avi container, and it's free. Using Firefox video downloader plugin one can download a video from YouTube etc. as a .flv file, then convert the file to anything with this software. Well worth a look.
