I need to convert video from DV tapes to mpeg format for use with transcription software (Transana). I also need to give copies of this video to teachers who wish to view the DVD on their PC. We cant get Windows Media Player to play these mpeg videos. It's not practical for each of them pay for and load new codecs. At the moment my only way around it is to import the video a second time through Movie Maker.
I run Windows XP, Vegas Movie Studio + DVD and Power Producer Gold.
What is the most practical and time efficient way of achieving this?
