Trialling another system. 1981 H&A Sandringham v Port Melbourn @ Sandy. http://vflfooty.dyndns.org/modules.php?name=Downloads&d_op=viewdownload&... Looking for someone to download it tonight and check it out. It's two parts, each 700MB so quite sizeable. Rex Hunt has a good day in front of goals for the Zebras from memory, in front of a decent crowd too. These files should work well for those wanting to convert them to DVD as well. They are encoded with Xvid: http://download.divxmovies.com/XviD-1.1.2-01112006.exe

Anyone try it? Are the downloads too big, or would you prefer to be able to stream them straight from the webpage?

Just finished downloading them now. I'm surprised by the quality (ie how good it really is), obviously you've taken very good care of your video tapes;-). I've got some oldish videos going back around 15 years that I'm tranferring to DVD, and the tape quality on some has really dropped off. Have just converted the first download to DVD format (I find it easier to use with any DVD player rather than being stuck with having to use a PC to watch). I'm happy with them as they are, because steaming live tends to be "inconvenient", as this system allows me to watch it at my leisure. Now, if you could only change the result of the game, I'd be even happier. Cheers E

Just finished downloading Part 1, i can hear everything but can't see it? Am i missing something here? Not overly a tech-head, tried a few things, any ideas?

Stanga, The first thing I would try is downloading/installing the codec Ons used to create the avi file. My experience has been that trying to get the correct codec for a particular video file (which could easily cause the symptoms you're seeing, or not as the case may be;-) is most of the battle with these things. Let us know how you go with this. Cheers E

Yeah as BigE said, try downloading the xvid codec. If that fails you should be able to play the files using VLC: http://www.videolan.org/vlc/download-windows.html

Stanga, The app I used to convert these to DVD format was "ConvertXtodvd" available from [url]http://www.vso-software.fr[/url] I'm certainly no expert when it comes to this kind of stuff, but this app made the entire process extremely easy. I also tried to edit the AVI to remove parts of the first file (from the end of the half time break, so the 3rd quarter stuff would be on disk 2), but didn't seem to have much luck there. So, I gave up that idea and just created the 2 DVDs from the AVI files as they were (with adding chapter markers to make the disks a little more user friendly). Hope this helps. Cheers E
