Just got this program and I love it! Question though

I just downloaded this program and it is by far the best one of these I’ve ever used! Seriously, kudos!

I’m guessing that there’s no way to convert a video file from one format to another though, right? Does it only work with DVDs as the source? If so, anyone recommend a program that does this just as well as DVDfab does everything else?

Thanks!

Hi avramw and welcome to cdfreaks,

Yes, platinum has the capability to convert to a number of formats…available in the DVD to Mobile profiles.

As examples:
in [B]Generic[/B]: Convert DVD title to PC AVI (DivX/XVID), MPEG-4 , MP4, or VOB/MPG file that can play on your PC or mobile…

in [B]iPod[/B]: Convert DVD title to Apple iPod MPEG-4/H.264 MP4 file or a number of other profiles for Ipod.

You can also create your own profiles.

You don’t have to use the original dvd as source. You can use an existing dvd folder or .ISO image as source.

Have fun!

My real question is if I can use an avi file or a wmv file as a source instead of a DVD or something similar…

Nope !!!

Any other program that people would recommend that does that well?

If you have an AVI or WMV files you want to convert to DVD format you can use DVDFlick (Freeware) it also has setting to change PAL to NTSC

So your initial questions were fakes?..:bigsmile:
Anyway, my “real”" answer remains the same…
