● You can stop here if you have a .flv compatible player. If you

want to play the file in a media player or play in your DVD player,

you will need to convert it.

Start up MediaCoder.

area, or click ‘file’, then ‘add file’.

you can use Nero, or some other DVD video burning

program to burn these videos onto a DVD so you can

watch them on any standard DVD player!
