LR Tutorials to DVD ???
« on: March 21, 2007, 06:04:37 PM »

Hi all,

Is there a way to convert the LR Tutorial videos so that they can be written to a DVD and the viewed on the TV?

These are excellent value, but I miss being able to watch on TV as I can with the LLVJ.

Cheers

Bob

I watch it on my TV through my modified xbox runing xbox media center. Might be able to do it with windows media center.

Presently I have all the tutorials saved to my desktop. Couldn't I just burn them to DVD using Roxio Toast Titanium and just play on my DVD player?

If you really want to watch the tutorial on a television set as opposed to a computer monitor, yes the Quicktime files can be converted to TV compatible video by several different methods. The best (but I have not tried it) is likely to be via an interface like Apple TV. IOW a _hardware_ device designed to pass low bit rate digital video to a television set. Just remember however that the dowload video files are designed to look best on a computer monitor and may not look as good on a television set.
Using software to convert one highly compressed video codec to another is _not_ recommended for the uninitiated.

Am I breaking any copyright by copying the tutorials to DVD to play on my own computers? I don't want to keep them on the desktop of my iMac as it adds to the clutter.

OK, thanks Chris. I do not have any hardware method of conversion (in fact I have not found even a software method as yet) so I'll prolly stick to watching on the computer....

No, IMO - what you own by virtue of having paid for, is yours to copy to other media as a 'backup' as long as it remains for your personal use only.

Thanks. Anybody who wouldn't respect copyright law really doesn't belong on this forum. We all want to learn from each other but I surely hope none of us wants to take someone else's intillectual property for their own gain.
