I want a simple? program to convert m2ts files to wmv for Windows Media Player for non-technical users.
M2ts are created by HD camcorders and won't play in Windows Media Player. Canon and Sony are 2 camcorders which produce this type.
There are lots of programs out there which claim "every file format? to every file format" but apart from expensive ones (I heard that? Sony Vegas Pro really does do it)? they can't take a .m2ts file and simply convert it to .wmv
Most programs I have seen convert into 4:3 or lose the sound, or convert the top left quadrant into a repeated version of the video.
All the non technical people have to wade through a mountain of technical help (do I have the right codec? shall I try downloading random codecs?) and eventually find that the programs claims are not true
? - O/S - Windows XP and Vista (minimum)
? -? Windows Media Player - v9, 10, 11 - no special codecs required to be installed (by the user, doesn't matter what happens behind the scenes by the s/w) - i.e. a desktop with Windows XP and WMP v10 which has never been used for video work would have no problem with this new program.
? - Downloadable autoinstall program
? - User interface - simple
* typical Windows interface
* browse for file - with type .mt2s as default, all files as option
* convert options of best standard for WMP, a few lower resolution options, ideally indicating the size each will take up
* 16:9 the default, note that the wmv file will need to deal with this and offer different source options if they are available.
- Other notes
-Trial version which will do up to a 30 second video to demonstrate how easy it is. The trial version can be converted into a full one by a registration? code.
-Full version which? includes the registration code.
-Of course, how to create the code will be part of this piece of work
-Additional consideration given to bids which handle other HD camcorder types and other camcorder types.
