If you are looking for a program that coverts from real media to another format I have used a program called "AVS Converter". There is a free trial program, but it is unusable, it places a logo screen on the converted file. The full version was about $20 as a download and NO logo screen.
How do I convert audio/video that is in a Real Player format, so that it does not depend on a website to play? I sent some cassette tapes audio and VCR videos to a friend who converted it to a Real Player format and posted in on his website. I have saved these on my computer, but (as I discovered when his website went down a couple of times) they depend on his website to play. Is there any way to save these audio and video files, so that they do not depend on his website to play? Are there any free audio/video converters that will do this? As long as his website is functioning, I can do anything with the audio/video. I made a Power Point presentation and inserted the audio and video. It does fine till his site goes down. I have Windows XP Professional, a 2 gig processor, 256 ram, 40 gig harddrive and I use the Free/Basic Real Player. I also use Windows Media Player and I have Music Match Juke Box (which I haven't used much). I have programs that will convert from mp3 to Windows Media Player and Real Player, but I do not see where they will remove the file extention that makes the audio dependent on a website. My only purpose is to save my memories (that I have shared) on my computer or my CD-R, without asking my friend to do any additional work, or me having to learn how to convert from Cassettes and VCR tapes to digital (since this has already been done by my friend). Can you help me?
