    Posted on July 5th, 2012 Dupont | 1,305 comments

    FLV (Flash Video) is a container file format used to deliver video over the Internet using Adobe Flash Player versions 6–11. Nowadays a number of famous websites, such as YouTube, Vimeo, Hulu and Metacafe, use FLV format as one of their main video formats. FLV video is supported by all popular browsers (IE, Firefox, Chrome, Safari, Opera …) and viewable on different operating systems (Windows, Mac and Linux). However, Microsoft PowerPoint cannot recognize it, which means you cannot directly insert FLV video into PowerPoint slide. We need to convert FLV to PowerPoint supported formats like AVI, WMV, which are originally supported by all PowerPoint versions.

  • For Your iPod (Part 2): Transfer Music from iPod to Computer for Your Musical Joy

    Posted on September 8th, 2010 Sara | 80 comments

    Hello, friends. As I mentioned in the last post, we can use Leawo iPod Video Converter to put YouTube videos onto iPod. Then some friends noted another question: How to transfer songs from iPod to computer?

    A friend asked “I recently got a new computer and I want to change my iTunes to my new one, but it won’t let me and only offers to erase the songs on my iPod. How do I sync my iPod to my new computer?” I was just in the same situation: I just bought a new laptop and I have 10GB worth of stuff on my iPod. Since I wanted to transfer the music from iPod to computer, I turned to some expert advice. Then I have got some ideas on how to transfer music to computer for musical joy as following:

    In the official company FAQ, Apple originally stated that:

    Synchronization occurs only in one direction, from your computer to your iPod. This means you cannot transfer music, automatically or manually, from your iPod to a computer, and you cannot use iPod to copy a music library from one computer to another.

    With the release of iTunes 7, Apple revised the company FAQ to note (emphasis added):

    Synchronization generally occurs only in one direction, from your computer to your iPod. This means you typically cannot transfer music, automatically or manually, from your iPod to a computer, and you cannot use iPod to copy a music library from one computer to another.

    An exception to this is the transfer purchases feature which allows you to restore purchased iTunes
    content to your computer from your iPod. Additionally, if you legally are allowed to copy music or other media files, you can configure your iPod as a storage drive to move media files.

    iTunes 7 and higher allow one to use an iPod to transfer songs purchased through iTunes to as many as five authorized computers. This only works for songs purchased through iTunes, not those ripped from CDs or downloaded from other sources, which are much more common.

    This restriction was designed to discourage casual music piracy, but unfortunately, this also prevents one from easily copying legally acquired music from one’s own iPod to their own computer.

    If you need to restore a music collection lost due to a system crash or want to transfer thousands of songs to a new computer using your iPod rather than again rip hundreds of CDs, of course, you can search for some helpful programs that make it simple if there are any.

    However, I have changed my mind, now as I see it, we have listened to the songs on our favorite iPod over and over, so we can totally replace them with new popular songs or even some latest movie background music. Then Leawo Video Converter comes to my help: It supports to convert between all the popular video and audio formats: AVI, DivX, Xvid, VOB, MOV, WMV, ASF, RMVB, RM, MPEG, FLV, MPG, MP4, MP3, WMA, 3GP, MKV, and so on. Plus, the video profile is to a specific need for you, like iPod MP4, PSP MP4, Zune MP4, Zune WMV, etc. I can not only transfer rich audios to my iPod but also videos. (Certainly, you can still choose Leawo iPod Video Converter as in the last post id you only want to get music for your iPod other than other portable devices.)

    And if you would like to extract the music from DVD or Blu-ray discs, Leawo Blu-ray Ripper and Leawo DVD Ripper are your best choice, which can decrypt DVD/Blu-ray discs powerfully and handles extracting audios for your iPod. Just have a try and have fun!

  • To be or not to be: should you convert AVI to RMVB?

    Posted on January 21st, 2010 Maky | 422 comments

    It makes sense to convert AVI to RMVB for fittest file size in the occasions of video backup, video upload or video watch on gadget devices. But are you really convinced that AVI should all go into RMVB for no reason? Have you understood both formats thoroughly and been able to tell the advantages from each other? If not, I am inviting you to join me to resolve this dilemma: to convert or not to convert AVI to RMVB.

    What are the edges of AVI and RMVB?

    In the sense of age, AVI is an older brother to many other formats, including RMVB, but not necessarily resembles them. AVI is actually a container format for encoding methods such as Divx, Xvid, MPEG-4 and H.264. Among the encoding methods, Xvid is superior for DVD-like picture quality, high compression rate and moderate encoding speed. It can manage to convert a 4.7G DVD movie into a fit size of about 700MB. Therefore, Xvid encoded AVI has been a preferred video format for DVD backup.

    As the online video share becomes a fashion, while the average network bandwidth is still incapable to cater to massive demand of video upload/download stream, sharing AVI video online is simply out of the question due to its clumsy size. So, video engineers developed RMVB – a smart video format with vibrant bit rate and real time stream capability. The first feature allows for greedy compression rate to generate smaller file size; the second meets the situation when the RMVB video can actually broadcast across the network in real time like a TV broadcast.

    To wrap up, AVI has DVD-like picture quality and RMVB is advanced for multiple occasional uses.

    Is AVI old enough to be replaced by RMVB?

    Indeed, AVI is a dated video format that is not suitable for network use. But it does make a stand in DVD backup and video playback on gadget devices. It still has superior picture quality we all appreciate. In front of RMVB’s irresistible features, we are curious about this question: can RMVB compromise the advantage of AVI in picture quality? This is vital to resolving the dilemma mentioned. Let’s find out the answer with a comparing experiment.

    Experiment: AVI vs. RMVB in picture quality.

    To make the experiment process easy enough for everyone to handle besides me, I am using Leawo Video Converter to conduct it. It is also more practical for everyone to employ the converter’s optimized presets than fumbling with technical parameters. Additionally, AVI and RMVB hold different parameters, the parameters make no senses in comparison. So I will use the optimized default presets of both formats to convert a 60MB MOV file and observe the results.

    Preparation:

    Download Leawo Video Converter and install. For more information, visit its official page.

    Convert MOV to AVI and MOV to RMVB each in three steps:

    • Launch the program and import the MOV video.
    • Select Xvid AVI preset.
    • Start the conversion without changing anything.
    • After the MOV to Xvid AVI conversion, repeat the procedure with RMVB preset.

    The result:

    AVI and RMVB go neck and neck in process time. So this is not a burden for you to take the liberty to pick either of them as a target format. But the discrepancy in file size is conspicuous. RMVB almost makes it to 1/3 of the original size. Now let the picture qualities speak for themselves.

    To rate the picture quality in scores, regarding the original MOV as 100, I will give 90 and 60 respectively to Xvid AVI and RMVB. The picture quality inevitably degrades as the file size shrinks. A good portion of details are left out as is shown in the RMVB screenshot, while in AVI screenshot it keeps most of the details. At last, the question has been answered: RMVB can’t defeat AVI in picture quality especially of a video with abundant details. By parity of reasoning, it doesn’t pay to convert AVI to RMVB either.

    What about the movies with fewer details, like the cartoons?

    Here is an extra comparison of AVI and RMVB with a VOB video as source.

    We see this outcome more or less like the previous one: RMVB is half the file size of AVI; both are met in process time. And the margin between both in picture quality doesn’t look so distinct this time.

    Here we have another answer to the question: RMVB can keep as many details as AVI can in cartoon movie conversion. So it makes good sense to convert AVI to RMVB in such cases.

    To be or not to be?

    The answer is decided by what kind of movie we are going to convert with regards to picture quality. If it is cartoon movies like Tom & Jerry, it is wise to convert AVI to RMVB to save hard disk space. Otherwise, it is better to do nothing but remain AVI. Thank you for joining me so far, feel free to drop me a line when you have troubles.

  • Burn Video DVD from any AVI or MP4 files with Leawo Video Converter and Nero Vision

    Posted on January 14th, 2010 Maky | 101 comments

    Many of the movies and music videos downloaded from the internet, recorded videos from camcorder and portable videos from iTunes are in AVI or MP4 formats. To burn DVD of these files, video conversion is necessary to convert them to VOB format before DVD burning, no matter which DVD creator, author or burning program is used. Today I am going to introduce a flexible way to burn DVD from any AVI, MP4 or other file formats with Leawo Video Converter and Nero Vision.

    Why choose Leawo Video Converter and Nero Vision?

    Leawo Video Converter is a matured all-in-one digital media converter that can convert all popular formats, such as AVI, MP4, MOV, FLV, WMV, MKV and RMVB to VOB format. Nero Vision is the DVD authoring component of Nero 9 Reloaded. It has full-fledged DVD authoring capability from splitting DVD chapters to creating DVD menu. To get free trial copies of both programs, visit http://www.leawo.com/leawo-video-converter/ for Leawo Video Converter, http://www.nero.com/ena/index.html for Nero 9 Reloaded.

    Now, collect the AVI or MP4 files you would like to burn and let’s rock.

    First step, we convert the AVI or MP4 files to VOB format with Leawo Video Converter. Leawo Video Converter is actually very easy to operate. It won’t take us more than a minute to figure out the whole course by checking out the screenshot manifest below.

    leawo video converter

    Here is a brief introduction of what happened in the screenshot:
    First, we dragged and dropped the AVI and MP4 files into the main frame of the program.
    Next, we went into the Profile box and pinpointed DVD-Video Format (*.vob).
    Then, we opened the setting window to adjust some codec settings.
    Finally, we clicked the button to go conversion.

    So this is the operation of Leawo Video Converter. Very easy and comfortable for us to grab the points, isn’t? But, it could do much better than that. If you are in one of the situations below,

    1. The video has junk parts needed to be weeded out. (See Trim feature)

    2. There are black margins of the video. (See Crop feature)

    3. The video file size is too big to fit into the DVD disc. (See Settings feature)

    4. The video should have a signature to protect its originality. (See Watermark feature)

    5. The recorded video is too dark or too bright. (See Effect feature)

    Feeling frustrated? Just follow the links and you will get helpful tips right away.

    When Leawo Video Converter is focusing on the task, you can take a break and maybe a cup of coffee. Don’t forget to check "Open the output folder after conversion" before you leave. When you are back, the converted VOB files should be displayed in the output folder on top of your desktop.

    Now, let’s talk about how to put these VOB files into a regular Video DVD disc. What I mean is not a different DVD disc (DVD-5, DVD-9, DVD-R, DVD+R), but the DVD burning mode. If you burn these VOB files directly to a DVD disc, what you get is a dummy Data DVD which won’t play on a DVD player. Besides, wouldn’t you like a navigation menu to spice up your work? So we are talking about what Nero Vision can do for us: compile DVD menu and burn a regular Video DVD disc.

    Follow me and let’s take a glimpse at this powerful DVD authoring tool produced by the giant DVD software company.

    Nero Vision adopts wizard mode to sort out a clear progress of DVD authoring. I will post every wizard step here, so don’t worry. You won’t get lost.

    This is the main interface of Nero Vision. It provides many format options for DVD authoring here. We take the first one and leave the rest for your own curiosity.

    Things kind of stack up a little bit. But with the blue marked tips, you can see there is actually not much to care about. We import the VOB files here and then perform video edit like swapping title order, making video chapters and cutting video length. With an indicator bar below, we can easily know when a DVD disc is filled up. Click "Next" when everything is done.

    Well, it looks really a mess here. However, this is where we author the DVD menu. When we come to this part, we can customize the default DVD menu template the program has prepared for us, or go to "Templates" tab to change for another template. To affect the appearance of the DVD menu, we can change its background picture with our own, modify the frame of the thumbnail buttons and reposition the thumbnail buttons on screen. You can start to make fun of authoring DVD menu with such flexibility for your creativity. When you get accustomed with these settings, feel free to check "Advanced Editing" to reveal more exciting DVD menu authoring features. Click "Next" when everything is done.

    Yeah, now put all the mess behind and take a proud feeling about your work. This part will simulate the DVD menu display on screen with a DVD player. Consider the button pad at the bottom right as a remote control. Click "Pre-render…" to give a real-time animated simulation of the DVD menu. Click "Next" when everything is done.

    Now we have come all the ways to the final step: Burn the DVD disc. Don’t get over excited yet. There are still some settings needed to attend to. Check "Burn To…" to make sure you are burning with a real DVD burner not an Image Recorder, unless you want to make a image copy of the authored DVD on hard disk. Change the default "Volume Name" to give it a self-evident one. Go to "Recording Settings" to set a moderate burning speed rather than Max speed. This is usually effective to prevent your years old DVD burner from trashing your disc.

    When it is all set, click "Burn" to start DVD burning. Then, put this fresh-from-the-burner DVD disc to your DVD player and enjoy! How do you feel about burning a Video DVD now? Feel free to drop me a line.
