Running Vista Home Premium 32-bit and have a JVC HDD camcorder that
downloads HDD using .TOD files.
Camera came with Everio SW for the .TOD files, and subsequently purchased a number of Cyberlink products trying to get the HDD environment to work in Vista with movies we've made. I could potentially use some of the software to convert .TOD files to convert to MPEG-2and make videos. But I expect them to work in the new Vista environment without all the limitation that exist! Cyberlink points to Everio, and so on. Want to be able to convert the .TOD files to MPEG-4 or whatever, and have them work so I can create movies in any format! The proprietary nature of .TOD and the lack of compatible conversions in the Vista environment is mind-boggling!
Asking Cyberlink for help on these issues with all the products we've ordered/installed/registered and then getting viable solutions has been less than productive! That said, looking for insight and alternatives, since the internet searches on these .TOD file problems with JVC HDD camera produces lots of problems and questions, few (if any) viable answers in compatibility and open conversion options in the Vista environment. HELP!
Anyone tried/used Silverlight from Microsoft to help this issue?
Solutions here are what I seek! Thanks in advance.
