    Recorded TV on PC to MP4 or 3GP?

    Advertisement



    Hi Everyone, I have been a lurker here for a couple weeks and now have a question? I have used the search function and have not found what I am looking for.

    I have recorded a TV Program (PGA TOUR GOLF) on my computer using Windows Media Center, however I have not found a video converter that will recognize the file so that I can convert it to a MP4 or 3GP. Does anyone know if this is possible?

    To recap I want to be able to record a TV show then convert it to a 3GP or MP4 so I can view it on my Pearl. I have Ulta Mobile Video Converter V3.9 & Blackberry Video Converter. Any help is GREATLY APPRECIATED.

    Kory

    When I use Roxio and drag and drop without conversion it says AVI in the desk top manager. I think Media Cener has some type of encription on it because I can not e-mail the files or anything. In propertes it says "Microsoft Recorded TV Show" for file type.

    Thanks,

    Kory

    I am going to post the "resolution" in case some one does a search for this in the future the answer will be here.
    If you are recording live TV using Windows Media Center (and possibly other applications) the File format is DVR-MS. This is the link to convert it to MPEG Files ://babgvant.com/files/folders/dvrmstoolbox/entry7194.aspx From there I convert it to a 3GP because I can not get Media Manager to convert it (although I think it should) using Ultra Mobile 3GP Video Converter. Seems to work great so far, I have some DVR'd shows I record them to my computer then put the on my BB. I did not find the program it was Sith from another forum.

    PS: The reason there are no links is you must be Stack Level 2 before you can post a link, Nice Feature.
