I am new to your site and much more comfortable under the hood of a car than navigating thru all the new computer technology. Below is what Iâ€™m trying to do and any help you can offer is greatly appreciated. I have about 2 weeks to accomplish what I want to do.
For 2 years the wife and I volunteered a few weeks a year in Mississippi and last year in Cedar Rapids, Iowa rebuilding houses. TV channel 9 news put out a DVD documenting last years Iowa flooding. Our team raises money to purchase building supplies for the homes we work on and I want to use a few cuts from the channel 9 DVD for our fund raiser. I have talked with them and have their permission to edit off their DVD. I am running windows XP home had have a Pioneer DVD burner however, it will not read movie DVDâ€™s
I also want to add to the DVD clips some picture I took to show the homes we worked on, kind of like a power point with some video.
1. What software do I need to be able to play movie DVDâ€™s on my computer?
What program do you recommend that would allow me to cut/edit out certain video and audio clips from the channel 9 DVD. Would DVDFab Platinum do the job?
I would like to put this on a stick drive that can be plugged into our church computer that links into our overhead projector. Will DVDFab convert to windows media player or will that computer need a special program?
Does the DVDFab program allow me to make backup copies of other movie DVDâ€™S?
Thanks so much for any help you can offer.
