Windows 7 & WMA won't read a video bup extension

grenj
We had some mini video tapes converted to CD. However, WMP or WMC (W7 environment) won't recognise (or play) the DVD. Will play on VLC but surely MS aplications should read - or am I missing something?

    Aren't regular video files (as it seems, they are backup video files), and so, they cannot be played by every media player.

    VLC player is a very versatile player, and so is a good option for playing your files. Try and use a dvd making tool to turn your videos into a dvd format or find a converter.

    Yes - it works well with VLC but I'm still trying to work out if it will copy from VLC. Thanks again;

    If it plays in VLC what's the problem?

    Here you need to convert the files to a different format to be viewable in your preferred Video Player.

    As explained above this is because the file format is a Backup Video File which is not possible to play in all Video Players. You should have no problem in converting the File to a more standard file type by inserting the DVD and running the File Conversion process.

    You will of course need to use a different DVD Blank to record the Converted Video Files to so that they can be used on a different range of players. Or you can just set the converting program to save to the HDD and view them from there if you like.

    Media Player has its own filters built-in. I suggest you to install the last Haali Media Splitter.
