by An99trh / January 23, 2015 12:22 PM PST

I just got a problem when I want to convert some .mp4 file to .mpg for using with my Tv.
All my video converter program like Total video converter or Intelligence video converter, do not open any of files in my list to do the job, few days ago they worked very well. Only the Vlc player can play. I don't know why and how?
Will someone tell ,e how to get them working again.
Thanks a lot

it don't? So what has changed? I think you should know more about that than any of us here. "mpg for tv", you have to give us more detail because as far as I know, tv do not play mpg files.

.mpg for tv

Thanks for your reply, I got back to what I want, after I post my question maybe someone could face the same problem like that. My tv is Sharp it requires video files to play through USB port to be .avi or .mpg or .vob in HQ quality, all others it won't open.

If system restore and reinstalling those programs doesn't help, I'd contact their customer service and tell them exactly what goes wrong. They might be able to tell then what caused it.
Why did you buy two conversion programs? Isn't one enough?

Hi, try re installing the Total Video converter and try it. Also try the same with the with the VLC player also. Check whether that file format is completed. If it has any invalid encode or it has any broken encode you may face this issue. Also try with the different same file, that which helps you.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
