Can you make sure ALL the audio works this year?
JUST NOW compressing the second set of AMV review clips with a special animated tacked onto the end.
(I'm not saying it's GOOD or IMPRESSIVE, only that it took ME a long time to do, plus I work a job that often goes late during weeknights...)
ANYWAYS I re-checked the audio and VLC (VideoLan) on Windows 7, and it can play all the tracks I checked.
I also checked some in Windows Media Player on XP, and again, the ones I checked played OK.
Even if they don't drag-n-drop into your own choice of editing software, you should be able to listen & scan for
what you think might work, decide on music/audio, then pass that subset of tracks through Audacity as a quick cracker.
Most tracks take under 30 sec to open in Audacity, then save as WAV.
I hope this will do for now...
I have FOUR packs and one BACKUP pack and one extra DVD to rip from in case there are issues with any media.
If we need more contingencies I can dip into some of this year's prize DVDs for VOBs, and my current media box for a selection of fansubs.
Let's cross our fingers ...
