those are all on for free trials.  I frankly hate the fact that it is so difficult to convert videos to my zune.  I have never been able to do it simply.  does anyone know of a good FREE converter that i don't have to pirate to use fully?

        nothin in this world is free so buy a zune converter an stop wasting your time looking for a free converter

Oh, but there are lots of free converters available that will do the job just fine. Here a few to look at:

1) Microsoft Windows Media Encoder 9 (recommended by Microsoft for converting video files for the Zune).

2) MediaCoder

3) Handbrake

4) WM Converter 2

I've tested all four, and they all do the job. My personal preference is (1).


For Windows Media Encoder 9 that you recommended....do you have any good suggestions for settings while converting?

I use Videora iPod Converter.

Works great for me. Except that it converts to .mp4, then the Zune software has to convert the .mp4 to .wmv. That second part takes awhile.

I personally use dvd dycrypter to rip dvds then convert them with videora ipod converter, (the itouch second gen. one, because it displays the movie full size of my screen) and the quality is crisp. although dvd dycrypter has failed on me very few times...

you can go to  http://www.videora.com/en-us/Converter/iPod/guide/dvd-to-ipod/ and this explains how to do it with pictures and stuff. try it.

I'm going to lean towards MediaCoder, since unlike just about everything else it actually has pretty decent support for soft subtitles.

This is a REALLY big deal for me; I'm sure you can figure why just by looking at my zunecard ...
