and two programs immediately came up. Blaze Media Pro and DVFilm Atlantis.
Blaze is for Windows only and $50.
Atlantis for $45 and you can get it for Windows or Mac.
I'm prety much a Mac person but they have PC's at here at work. I'm going to try blaze first and see how it goes...
OK, I downloaded and installed Blaze pro. Whoa it Installed a bunch of files... then asked me to reboot. I really hate that, oh well. The user interface is kind of confusing. I click on Conversions. Im' looking at the AVI tab. Is that the input format or the output format? It doesn't say. OK, for starters I tried dragging a VOB file (thats the video file that lives on DVD's) that someone gave me.
Well Blaze won't play it back or let me see it or anything. I tried renaming it from .vob extension to .mpg but that's didn't work either. Here is the error message I get: "An error occured during conversion, file format error" That's real helpful. I check the help file, looked in the FAQ... FAQ is empty. Then I went to "Supported file formats." Yikes, VOB is not in the supported file formats. Hmmm this is going to tougher than I thought.
I removed Blaze Pro and will try the other program tomorrow. Obviously this is not going to be too easy.
