Converting Dvd To A Usable Mpg Format

Recommended Posts

As most of you know I have a “preview” copy of the A-10 historical DVD and I would like to make a short film, using Windows movie maker (MM), to post on the net to show everyone some of the content. The problem I’m having is converting the DVD format into something movie maker can recognize.


The DVD is in MGEP2 format and I do have a “rip” program to convert it into MPEG1 formant. The problem I have is once I rip it and try to import it into movie maker, MM only sees it as an audio file. I can drag it down into the audio section of MM but not the video section. Also if I play the “audio” the video is “imbedded” in the audio. I think this is because the file has a VOB file ext. and that’s what is confusing MM.


Do I need a different video editor to work with the ripped files or what? I’m very green when it comes to video editing and video file extensions so be gentle with me! B)
