Freshly reinstalled Sony Vegas won't open the video edits I produced with it before

I recently had to reinstall Windows (XP) on my PC to kill some malware. Subsequently, I reinstalled Sony Vegas Movie Studio 9, which I've been using for the last couple of years on this machine. Today I went to open one of my video edits for the first time... but Vegas chokes on it. Can you help me figure out why? Error log after the jump. [more inside]

There must be something better than Videora iPod Converter!

I use Videora to convert my videos (in DivX/XviD format) to something I can play on my iPod Classic. Whilst it does mainly what I want, it also sucks. Please help me find a replacement that does more and sucks less. [more inside]

Rip and Burn Multiple Movies to a DVD using New 0.9.4 Handbrake for Divx player?

Since Handbrake 0.9.4 seems to have gotten rid of the .avi/Xvid option, is there anyway to rip a DVD so it will play on a divx etc enabled player? If you have the time, I would appreciate a step by step breakdown. Much appreciated! (and thanks way back when for figuring out how to do this on the older Handbrake).

How can I get my hard drive to work with my TV and computer at the same time?

My new Samsung HDTV plays lots of content off a USB Hard Drive. Works great. What's the best way for me to setup a hard drive that stays connected to the TV but allows my computer to write files to it? Seems like all the drives I have or look up only allow 1 device to connect to it at a time.

Ripping a TV series in Handbrake

I can rip movies to Xvid using Handbrake and it is all good....it rips the movie but no special features which is fine....But lately, when I tried John Adams (miniseries) or the TV show the 4400, it only took one chunk out of the whole disc and ignored the other episodes. Is there a way around this so I can get all the episodes even if they are lumped into one .avi file? (I really don't mind all the fast-forwarding). Thanks...and to all of those reading/responding...have a great weekend.

Streaming video from a Mac to an Xbox 360

I was reading the December 2007 Video Playback FAQ about the new video options that are going to be incorporated in tomorrow's Xbox 360 dashboard update. And I was surprised to see question #28: "How can I stream content from my Mac?". They imply that it's possible, but they don't mention any 3rd party solutions. What Mac software can I use for this?

How do I encode for a standalone DivX player with Handbrake?

Writeable DVD applications

I have an xViD .avi movie, 119minutes, that I'd like to put onto DVD. Toast claims that it can't fit it on (5.7gb required, 4.4gb of my 4.7gb writeable DVD available). What I'd like is to be able to requantize the movie so that it fits onto the DVD. Bonus points for an OS X application. Super bonus points for a free one. That I don't have to find a crack for.

Xvid movies shake due to software problem; what can I do?

Some of my XVid movies shake when I play them, regardless of the player used. This does not happen with all XVid movies, and GSpot says they have no errors.

Also, they do not shake when I play them in my DVD player, so it's something software-related. Other than uninstalling my codecs and re-installing them, have you got any suggestions? Thanks!
