    Default windows

    hi
    im currently using windows movie maker to
    make small movie clips from my old video tape
    feeding the vid signal into my comp with
    an s video cable.

    I have the windows movie maker set at 512 k for Broadband
    the end files dont come in too big, the quality is ok
    but I suppose, could be better.

    Quality is so important, you are doing all this effort,
    and you want a good qulity playback
    should I change the setting s to " best quality for playback on this computor " ?
    or should I think of some other software.

    The quality of the recordings on my video tapes is
    generally good, so naturally I want to keep that quality moving into digital
    thanks for any comments or advice

    What do you want to do with your videos, play them back on the computer or upload them to the likes of YouTube? If it's for YouTube then the broadband setting is probably alright although the quality will never be as good as a file played back on your computer or dvd as it has to be compressed so much. If you wish to playback the files on your computer then select some other settings such as .wmv.

    ISNT wmv the file ? I think they all come out
    as that extension,
    what I want it good quality , yet not so good that a
    3 min vid comes out at 100 meg !

    I want to save the vids for myself but also share them
    and post to veoh vid or U tube
    ( though downloading from U tube is a joke
    upload a 10 meg movie and downloading you ll only get
    5 meg so there is a 50% quality drop in one go ! )

    Most of them are .wmv but you also have dv avi (PAL if you are in the UK or NTSC if you are in America) and high mat for recordable cd. You have to click on a radio button in the Movie Settings window to access these other settings. It's impossible to get high quality and keep file sizes small, if you want high quality (dv avi for example) then expect large files.
