How to convert and transfer video to portable media players.

Fairusewizard

So you’ve just received a brand new bright shiny plastic media player, right? But horror of horrors, you discover too late that it won’t play the video clips that come from your digital camera because they’re in the QPEL (quarter pixel) and GMC format. What to do? You’re also desperate to learn how to transfer your DVD movies onto the player without wasting a fortune in time or money? Fear not, brave soldiers of the gidget, we at Fair Use Ferret Central have the solution. Thanks to my little daughter Gi for giving me the excuse to research and do this stuff.

1) To convert your incompatible digicam clips, you’ll need to download the free Auto Gordian Knot (AutoGK) video converter, which is actually several vid utilities stitched together. Install and fire it up (first time out you’ll need to OK all the modules), and select your input file and output destination. Press Ctrl-F9 (Hidden Options) and at the bottom right of the screen tick the ‘Enable Standalone Support’ and select ‘ESS’. Click OK, then on the main screen click on Add Job. You can queue up a bunch of videos by selecting and ‘adding’ more input files, then when you’re done, just click on Start. That’s it. After a few moments, your destination folder will contain video that you can happily transfer to your Philips, Archos or other media player for your full amusement. Enjoy! Oh and you need to make sure you’ve got the Divx codec installed on your PC.

2) To convert and transfer a DVD movie to small media player friendly format, simply trot along to the Fair Use Wizard Lite website and download the freeware version there. You’ll need to make sure it’s version 2.3 or later, so right now that means an additional download. Install, fire it up, follow instructions, insert DVD into drive and rip and convert as required. You’ll end up with a 700MB or so file which can be copied over to your player at will. Now you will make sure that you don’t contravene any copyright laws in your particular jurisdiction, won’t you? Good children.
