Using .MOD files with Windows Movie Maker

DEAR GOOGLE ADSENSE TEAM, THIS PAGE HAS BEEN ACCUSED OF PLACING ADSENSE ADS IN AREAS THAT ARE “ENCOURAGING ADDITIONAL CLICKS”. I WOULD LIKE THE EYES OF A HUMAN TO INSPECT THIS PAGE AND NOT SOME PROGRAMMED BOT. I HAVE AN AD AT THE BEGINNING OF THIS POST AND TWO ON THE SIDE MENU.   I sometimes post things on my site so I have a record of it and can reference back whenever I need the information.

To get the footage into Windows Movie Maker find a program called SDCOPY .  By default my Canon FS100 records in widescreen mode (16:9 aspect ratio).  However, it doesn’t properly set a flag in the .MOD file to indicate this so several programs (including GSpot codec appliance) report the video as being in 4:3

KILLZONE 2 Trailer & Pre-Order Link!

I found the video on my Reader a few days ago. I hope some of my readers haven’t seen it and will watch it from my site. I pre-ordered my copy of Killzone 2 (you should too) . At first I wasn’t but I found it for $53.99 over at Amazon.Ca. Then I found a $10 off coupon so I decided, why the hell not. Oh, and the video looks great.
