Thread: Copying video from computer cd

  1. #1

    Default Copying video from computer cd

    I have an interactive computer cd, a holiday rep's guide to Hungary. I'd like to copy some of the footage and convert it to vob format, or any intermediate format, so that I can play it on my set-top video player. How can I do this? I don't understand how the video is actually stored.
    Files on the cd that might be relevant include:

    PSD_X.VCD (1 KB)
    FILELIST.PHP (1 KB)
    H_SMILES.SWF (29519 KB)
    AVSEQ01.DAT (218167 KB)
    DIGITAL_MEMORIES.EXE (1784 KB)

    and others of the same type.
    "Hungary Smiles" is the snippett that I want. If I double click on the .swf file I get a black Flash window.

    Thanks

    Tony

    The swf file is mostly likely the one. It's an Abobe Flash file and I suspect will contain the video you want.

    How to get the stuff out of it though is another matter and I can;t help with that.

    Hi Alan.
    Solved it! Here's what I learned.
    You can view a swf file by dragging and dropping it into internet explorer.
    I downloaded a freeware program "Swf Avi Convert :: Free Converter :: 1.0" which again has a simple interface and converts the swf file to Avi, which I can easily edit and save in the vob format I want.

    Thanks
    Tony
