How to capture a video from a home made dvd to use to create a video edited with Windows Movie Maker

I have a DVD made home to a sporting event that my son has played in. I'm trying to get the DVD video in a file on my PC so that I can use it with Windows Movie Maker. I know how to create and edit a video on movie maker, but I can't seem to figure out how to capture video from this DVD. It is probably a 'rookie' question, but I couldn't find what I needed by using 'help' or 'search', so I hope someone in this forum can tell me how to do this.

=======================================
If you're running Vista Home Premium or Ultimate, you can
be able to import files into Movie Maker directly from the
DVD... the files you want are in the VIDEO_TS folder and have
a VOB extension.

Also... the info is maybe worth a visit:

DVD Movie Maker 6... in Vista Home Basic
http://www.Papajohn.org/newsletters/185-DVDtoMM6inVistaHomeBasic.html

When you insert the DVD in your DVD player... close
all the windows that can open and then go to... Start /.
Computer... right click the icon for the DVD player
is in, and then select Explorer.

The files you need from the DVD are the. VOB files.
You will find them in the VIDEO_TS folder. Copy them
in a folder on your hard drive.

First... just try to rename one of the. VOB files to
. MPG or .avi and see if it will matter in Movie Maker.
If import works... drag the file to the timeline and
Economy/publication it to .wmv or .avi format. Then...
Re - import new video film for editing purposes.

(FWIW... you can probably play the files renamed
in Windows Media Player to be sure that VOB
file to edit)

If you are unable to import the files they need to be converted
another .wmv format would be a good choice.
The following free Converter may be helpful.

SUPER © Simplified
Universal Player Encoder & Renderer
http://www.videohelp.com/tools/Super
(the download mirror site is faster... it is said):
Mirror download (direct link) (28.1 MB))

(FWIW... it is always a good practice to create one)
System restore point before installing new software)

After installing the program GREAT... open...
you will see two small circles at the top left
corner of the screen... check the UPPER circle.

Now... Drag/Drop your. VOB files in the current field.

Output container... Choose wmv...

Video scale size / no change

Left, click the Encode button.

Choice: A Simple Profile / OK...

Wait...

(FWIW... I have better luck with video if I'm not
try to multi-task while a file is being converted)

When the file is converted, you should find it in...
Program Files / eRightSoft / Super / exit.

Or... you can type... CTRL + T.. o open the Save
Window and choose a backup folder.

Good luck...

Also... try the following free software:

The following freeware can convert:

(FWIW... it's always a good idea to create a system)
Restore point before installing software or updates)

Format Factory
http://www.pcfreetime.com/
(FWIW... installation..., you can uncheck
('all' boxes on the last screen)

After downloading and installing Format Factory...
Open the program and choose an output folder...
(this is where you will find your files when they are
converted)

Drag and drop your VOB files on the main screen...

Select "all to WMV" / OK...

Click on... Beginning... in the toolbar...

Good luck...

    Two thoughts...

    (1) you may have a problem with audio / music which is not
    fully compatible with Movie Maker. The best choice of audio.
    music formats would be .wma or .wav.

    (2) the addition of transitions between the photos will reduce the picture
    duration with overlap.

    The reason why I ask this is because I was able to save on another computer that has Movie Maker on it, but my laptop Vista cant even record. I need to update or download an update? On the Movie Maker, it just says that I can import videos, no catch.

    Hello

    I use the same device which was used to make movies in the past with no problems. The error message is sorry, unable to save your movie. Find missing files or delete the unusable items in your project and then try again. Error: 0 x 87160129

    I've never had any problems with this before and made more than 100 movies using WLMM or WMM. Thanks for any help. Would that my camera settings? I use a Lumix.

    I just found out what the problem is freakin ' and the solution. If the inserted videos have different "video codec" then it will not work!

    Before adding videos to Movie Maker, throw in a video converter and convert them all. (Even if the original format is WMV, convert again to WMV) that will ensure the output videos have the same codec!
    This solved the problem for me, hope, it does for you too...
  • How to combine two video projects in Windows Movie Maker?

    How to combine two projects?

    I started a project and I would like to import and more old project to combine.

    I guess that you are referring to the project .mswmm files?

    The following steps may be worth a try:

    Reach... File / open project... Select a project file.
    When the project appears on the timeline... go to...
    Edition / select all.

    Open a different project... to... Editing / paste.

    Now the content of the two projects should be on
    the chronology.

    To add more doing the same thing...

    Edition / select all... open a project... Editing / paste

    Another method would be to publish (save) each
    the project in film WMV format and then re-import
    both WMV clips and slide both to the
    timeline. Then, you could publish it as a simple video.

  • Is what camcorder compatible with Windows Movie Maker on Vista Home Premium?

    I'm in a bit of a dead end.  I have to make and edit a film which is mostly clips stored in Windows Movie Maker on my old computer which has VISTA Home Premium/64 bit.

    In most old clips (that are compatible), I have to shoot some new images.  My recent purchase of a Sony camcorder does not work.

    Can anyone recommend a camcorder that will have files that are compatible with Windows Movie Maker?  My Sony clips seem impossible to move outside the Sony software so I can't convert them.

    I'm ready to buy a new camera.  I just need something compatible.  Would even buy a used one on E - Bay as long as it will work with the old Windows Movie Maker.

    Can anyone help?

    If its on a memory card to buy a card reader, if you do not. Or if you connect the cable it should allow you to see what on it

    Most camcorders these days support MP4. If it is HD. The new Panasonic cam I have here, I think that it records in MP4. Since it is 1080 p

    The old who is also Panasonic may have been old, (it is not HD), but it had a firewire port.

    But I think that it saved videos like WMV (I mean I don't know that it loaded in Movie maker, when I got it)

    You will have either to buy a program that supports MP4, or use a video conversion program and convert to WMV

    Watch the video file. The last 3 letters represent the file format.

    Windows Movie maker only supports the following video file formats:

    Video files: .asf, .avi, .dvr-ms, .m1v, .mp2, .mp2v, .mpe, .mpeg, .mpg, .mpv2, .wm, and .wmv

    If yours is not on the above list, Movie Maker will have probel play.

    In this case, you will have to google for a free video converter and change the format of your video file to WMV. WMV format is the most reliable format for Windows. For the benefits of others looking for answers, please mark as answer suggestion if it solves your problem.

  • I created a movie in movie maker xp - how to access the movie with Windows movie maker 7?

    I want to access the movie file and continue working on it.  Movie Maker (MM) W7 does not open my movie file 1-1/2 years.

    I have a new PC with W7 - I also tried to open MM in virtual XP mode. No luck. There is an MM program in XP mode, but it does not open.  I was charged correctly MM in XP mode from the internet. Loaded, it does not open.

    Is there a way to convert the file MM XP to W7 MM? Much time was spent in a series of films when I was with my old PC with XP and I'm guessing that the XP of MM version now I can't access the files!

    Help!

    No guarantee but something you could try...

    There are two older downloadable versions of Movie Maker
    that will run on Windows 7... Maybe one of them would be open
    your. MSWMM Movie Maker project file. (you do not have XP
    Mode for these)

    And... you must have copies of 'all' (Photos source files,
    Video clips, Audio clips that were in the project). If you are
    success by opening the project file... you will see red Xs.

    Right-click the Xs and navigate to the location where you
    saved the source files to restore the path.

    * Proceed at your own risk *.
