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.
Does your video camera record capture .MOD files in 16:9 but displays 4:3 in Windows Movie Maker? Well, here’s a solution:

Several camcorders that record to an internal hdd store video in files with a .MOD extension.  Unfortunately I couldn’t import these directly into Windows Movie Maker.

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 format (instead of 16:9).

SDCopy makes a copy of the file, changes the extension to .MPG and corrects the aspect ratio flag (as long as you select the option).

Next, I used ffmpeg to convert from an mpeg to an asf with the following invocation:
ffmpeg -i myvideo.MPG -f asf -sameq -vcodec wmv2 -acodec wmav2 -ab 256k myvideo.asf
Windows Movie Maker was able to import the .asf.
