    @Tony TwoTone:
    G’day Tony,
    WinX HD Video Converter isn’t a Ripper as such – it assumes you already have the video file in hand and it allows you to covert it to another format. Theoretically, you should be able to convert the flash movie (flv) to any output format that is supports, which is many (including DVD, or VOB).

    However, you will only find out until you give it a try. I’ve actually found that many of these video converters can be a bit of “hit and miss” with some file conversions. For example, I’ve tried using WinX to reduce the video bit rate on existing Mpeg2-ps stream’s which I’ve captured from with my PVR – this would allow me to reduce the file size so I could fit it on a 4.7 GB DVD disc. Although it reduces the bit rate succesfully, it can often reduce it by a lot more than what you have specified (ie, I’d tell it to convert to a bit rate of 4200 kb/s, but it would convert it down to 2,600 kb/s), therefore the quality is not as good as it could be. When it comes to getting WinX to convert HD Mpeg2, it has failed at every attempt. It either crashes at the beginning of conversion or half way through conversion. I also had a go at downloading a Youtube clip and converting it to MP3 – the sound was very distorted. What I found surprising is that Urex Converter (also currently running a giveaway as mentioned in the dottech forum’s), can actually handle the HD mpeg’s without crashing – I’m fairly confident Urex is a subsidiary of Digiarty (the makers of WinX) – therefore I expected an almost identical converter or perhaps even a slightly cut-down version to WinX, but they appear to be running a different engine. Unfortunately with Urex, its not as granular, meaning it provides you with less options (ie, changing bit rates for TV mpeg2 provides options only for 2500, 4000 or 8000 kb/s – would have been nice if they provided 500 kb/s increments). Urex appears to be more basic, but it seems like it can handle the basic tasks much more effectively – which I like. Another video converter which has previously been given away is Wondershare Video Converter Ultimate – which has all bells and whistles – but then again, even this program has its limitations – for example, this program cannot retain to 16:9 aspect ratio when converting an mpeg2 file – it always converts it to 5:4 aspect ratio. If these programs cannot perform the basic’s (converting an mpeg2 file accurately), then as far as I’m concered, they are not commercially viable just yet – I’m sure some of them will get there as they endevour to improve their products provided by our feedback.

    I’d say its worth having a go and also worth having at least 2 different video converters in your toolkit, because one may not be able to deliver the result you need when the other can.

    Will this make a DVD copy of my favorite movie (ah..you know, incase I accidently scratched the orignal DVD)? Can I convert and burn a flash movie into a DVD movie that I can watch on me DVD player? Thanks lads for any help in the matter……..
