Hello all

Does anyone have a tool/workfow to create Windows Media 8 files?

Currently we export from Final Cut to a DV file and compress with Cleaner 5 on a PC.

Thanks

Fred

The free windows media encoder makes good Windows Media 8 files. We use that for a client who's intranet can only handle WIndows Media 8.

Hi Lisa

Thanks for the feedback, Windows Media Encoder will work but it will not accept my source files, I will still have to convert/encode them twice. First for input to WME and then in WME for the fimal output.

What I am really looking for is an Encoder that will take in DCVProHD MOV files and convert them to WMV version 8.

Thanks


Fred

There aren't any encoders I know of for WMV8 on Mac. For WMV9, you have your choice of the Flip4Mac or Popwire solutions.

Well, maybe VLC.

Why do you need the old codec? WMV9 has been out for ages now, and is very well supported.

Hi Ben

Thanks for the info.

The Why is "the client" wants the file to be playable on older machines, machins that have WM8 installed. We deliverd a set of WMv9 files and they said everyting was fine, until MIS got a call.... and you know the rest of the story..
