VLC = Next Gen Media Encoder.

It's so simple....

Here I'll show you in image form....

1.) Add a video file to your playlist.



2.) Open Wizard.



3.) Select transcode to file.



4.) Choose Existing Playlist Item.



5.) Choose format (mp4 PS3, WMV 360)



6.) Choose Encapulation Method (mp4 PS3, ASF 360)



7.) Choose Output File (urnamehere.mp4 PS3, urnamehere.wmv 360)



Then it converts them. Easy and done.

I put it here because it's MS and PS3 capable. You could plug a external to your PC transcode the file, and then play it on your preferred system.

Hmmm. I'll try that when I get home

Edit: Hmm, doesn't seem to work with some of my files. Looks like the MPeg4 ones. It ends up crashing the program

I have been using Core Media Player for a while now, but since this handles encoding, Ill probably have to convert over.

VLC kicks ass. That's all I have to say. Before this thread I thought it was only a video/audio player. I didn't know it could transcode shiz. And your instructions even work for the Mac.

Did you use WMV 1 or WMV 2?
