Trimming, converting .wtv files? (Windows Media Centre recorded tv)


 Share

Recommended Posts

Okay. Simple enough. I want to take some of the .wtv files, which are the WMC recorded tv files and convert them into a more usable format. Simply to MP4 or MKV. I'd also like to be able to trim the start and end, and perhaps remove ads.

 

 

I tried to use handbrake but some of the files just stop converting at random percentages. MC-TV converter is just .blah. Windows movie maker had sync issues with the output.

 

Is there any decent software where I can just input the file, edit how I see fit, and output the file in a common format?

 

 

 

Thanks.

Ahhh Freemake. I think I used this ages ago but completely forgot about it! 

 

Thanks Rippleman.

If you donate, the most current versions use CUDA to really cut down on conversion time. Ad removal is excellent as well. Excellent video/audio quality.

MCEbuddy looks interesting. Freemake seems to be doing everything I need though.

 

Rippleman wasn't kidding about the adware, it attempts 3 different package installs & makes it look like one of the radio buttons is greyed out so it can't be selected. Very sneaky.

I use MeGUI to do all my encoding. This is a bit more of an advanced tool. I re-encode most of the anime or tv-shows I download. I've gotten my media collection down by about 45%. Most movies (1080p) go to 720p and are about 500mb a piece. My tv-shows are 190 - 210mb a piece.

There is also a paid program called "Xilisoft". I used that to put music videos on my iPod.

OK. I appreciate everyone's suggestions. I think for now I will stick with freemake. Thanks again, Rippleman.
