I've used Windows Media Center to create several .msdvd files. I just want to convert them to something else, preferably .avi but any common format will do. I don't want to burn it straight to DVD and then rip from a DVD disk, which seems to be the suggestion elsewhere on the internet.
So is there a way I can:
- save straight to .avi from within Windows Media Center? ( I didn't see any option)
- use a freeware program to convert an .msdvd file to an .avi? (haven't yet found one)
- some other nifty trick? (can I 'save to dvd' without burning to a dvd, and then rip from the dvd file?)
