can anyone tell me if they know where i can download either movie trailers old or new, or music videos, im playing around trying to create a home media gui /tv interface
they need to be playable in windows media player
The way Apple Trailers and Movie List work is mainly by linking to the official trailer on the movie producers' websites. On the whole, these tend to be Quicktime (.mov) files, since this is a relatively small file, and the file-type is well established.
Why do you want the files in Windows Media Player anyway? Get Quicktime and use that instead - much better, simpler interface, and far more powerful.
well im building the program using power point, not a great program for what im trying to do but im just a novice, and i dont believe its possible to get quicktime to format with powerpoint
the problem i having at the moment is any trailers i try to watch in quicktime or windows media is giving me sound but not picture, its just a blank screen, but any video files i perviously had save on my hard drive work fime
It has trailer link for most of the movies (the more recent ones certainly), that you can watch onscreen (Real or Windows Media Player usually. And if you can watch it, you can usually right-click on the link and "save target as . . ."
and a couple more favourites sites...
i have ruined my pc somehow i cant play any video on either windows media or quicktime
all i get is the sound, i just dont understand even old files that used to work seem to be corrupt now, i have tried troubleshooting etc and am having no luck at all :(
u havent ruined ur pc, dont worry, u just messed up the codecs a bit. its hard to explain how to repair this through a forum so i suggest u call up someone who knows his/hers way around computers and codecs and they will sort it out in no time.
