I just tried to download Adobe Digital Editions as an advice from a friend of mine, saying it was a nice way do read ebooks. So I decided to give it a try. Besides not being able to download it I was delighted with the grammatical mistakes in the pop-up window that was downloading the application.It is refreshing to see a company that does not even care to proofread what they publish.
Although Sothink Web Video Downloader for Firefox v5.7 downloads most of the time, there are many sites where it does not work. Anyone have any suggestions of other ways to download flash video on a web-page?
I'm having a nightmare. I recently bought a macbook and transferred by Iweb file for my webistes to it from my imac - I had to change some of the fonts etc to fit with the format. I am having few problem: 1. can seem to get iweb on the imac to recognise it oping only in macbook application via network even though I have binned the origional domains2. once uploaded to my ftp the format looks all ou (even though it doesn't on the screen prior to uploading)I alomst feel I will have to update the whole old file even though i've spent ages doing it on the mac book
NB: First mac...When I first put a DVD into my mac (DVD and mac both from Australia) I was asked to set my region code - fair enough. Then, I inserted another dvd, from Australia again. I had to reset my region code. I was alarmed to find that I could only set my region code 5 times...I know of alternatives such as VLC that ignore region coding, but none of these offer the tight integration that Apple's DVD player does.A quick google search also revealed the possibilities of installing a region-free drive, and using a utility called RegionX, which resets OSX's region change counter (only with region-free drives...). Unfortunately, I don't have the luxury of extra optical drive bays, as with the Mac Pro...
I have a friend who wants me to create a DVD using pictures from a project in iMovie 09. I am in region one. Can I change the region to four before I burn a DVD in iDVD 09? If so, I then want to change it back to region one.
Been searching online for an easy way to copy DVDs to the hard drive so they can be watched without the external DVD player needed for the MacBook Air.I've converted the DVD to a .DMG file using the disk utility tool and then mounted it...but cant figure out how to make it actually execute inside of QuickTime...
I was just curious what others do about ripping dvds to Mac. I have some dvd collection at home and recently got the Macbook so I wanted to just put my favorite dvds using handbrake...Since I am considering to buy an Ipod soon is it better to make the output format to mpeg4? or avi?
Okay...so I'm literally going crazy. My father ripped a bunch of dvds of mine using his pc (I haven't converted him...yet!) with DVDfab Platinum. I'm working on backing up my movies on hard drive and I have tried to rip them to my Macbook with MTR as well as burning them with Popcorn.
I have never had any difficulty with either program except when it comes to trying to re-rip these dvds copied on pc first.It doesn't seem logical that this can be a pc to mac problem...but who knows? MTR shuts down immediately when trying to rip the movie. Popcorn won't burn the TS file from the DVD or an image file of the DVD. I'm lost. Does anyone have any suggestions...?
I film plays and put them on to dvds, well when I burn them as it is burning it slowly takes up memory. Does any one no how to get that space back? I do a lot of plays and it seems that it has taken quite a bit of space!
I just bought a new Kenwood DNX-9140 for my car that plays DivX files. I also bought a 500GB external hard drive. My Kenwood unit can play files from external hard drives. I want to rip my DVDs to my external hard drive and play them on my Kenwood unit. I want to be able to keep the menu functions on the ripped DVD file.
Keep the ripped file to ONE DivX file. It would be best if I could keep the final file under 3GB. Basically, opening the file and acting like it's playing a normal DVD. I know it's a lot to ask but if this can be done in as little steps as possible it would be awesome. I spent many hours searching and experimenting for the answer.
I bought Roxio Toast Titanium 5.0 and downloaded the 5.2.1 update so I could burn some DVDs on my iMac (which is about 2 months old). I set it to record a video_ts file from one of the DVD discs that I've ripped to the hard drive. It records the files and verifies, then it says that the DVD was burned fine. The problem is that when I try it on any DVD player, the disc will not play. It won't play in a stand-alone DVD player, on the iMac nor on my PC. I checked what was burned, and all the files were recorded fine. I've gone through 6 discs with the same result. The only time it recorded anything viewable, was when I set it for "disc copy" and even then, the entire DVD was not recorded because of some error and when I popped it in the player, the portion that was recorded was very pixelated and unwatchable.
I want to burn a DVD from a video I have on my hard drive. I want it to play on DVD players as well as my iMac. But what I don't want is the smarmy "Themes" iDVD insist there be on the result. IS there a way I can do this without the Themes or will I have to use a different burner? Some videos I have are .avi, DVIX, .wmv, etc. I'm sure that the starting format has nothing to do with my problem, but one never knows. I'm running OSX 10.6.2 and am really happy with it. Although, I haven't see any difference when running it in 64-bit mode. But maybe if I were using more 64-bit software?
I just got a brand new iMac '09 with. I love it already but the only problem I seem to be having is iDVD. I got a movie that is about 700 MB, and would like to burn it onto DVD. First iDVD was saying its too large for the 4.2 GB DVD, so I selected high quality instead of previously selected Best Performance. That fit the movie onto the DVD. Once the encoding was done, I burned it. However now, when I play in on my DVD player, there is no video (green screen) and sound is all scrambled. Same thing when I play in on the iMac. I then noticed that already on the preview menu (under media) the movie is played with no video and damaged audio. Also, when it was finished burning on the dvd, iDVD kept asking for blank recordable DVDs to be inserted, which after two ruined dvds I cancelled.
