Default Convert Your Video


“I bought my Zune 80 primarily for it’s video playing capabilities (watching Video Podcasts and movie files), so I have spent a considerable amount of time researching this subject. Specifically, how to convert existing video files (e.g., avi, mpg, and vob files) for syncing and viewing on my Zune 80. Unfortunately, the Zune Software on your Desktop PC isn’t setup to easily process video files. There was a lot to learn, such as what video format to convert to, what video conversion tools are available, how to sync video files to my Zune, how to add description text and sort TV episodes to video files, etc.”

Zune Tips Weblog has a very good Video Conversion quick guide to getting video on your Zune. Zune Tips will also guide you through the process of ripping files off of your own DVDs if you need that step of the process as well. The software involved is all free and only your time and dedication is needed! I have used many of the tools in the past and while the results are quite acceptable you will be faced with a lot of work to get video on your Zune this way. If you don’t want to shell out the cash for one of the many software suites that will do this for you, though, it’s a very good option.
