ZuneTVWatcher: MCE to Zune Conversion

Posted by Damion Chaplin in "Zune Content Creation & Management" @ 12:00 PM

"A new program out today, ZuneTVWatcher kind of starts to pick-up where Microsoft left off with lame Media Center and Zune integration. It will automatically monitor your Recorded TV folder, and then convert your recordings to go on the Zune. You might be saying, “Hey, I can do this already”. But that one thing that you might not already be able to do is sync the shows and have the metadata put them into the "TV Shows" section on the Zune. Right now, if you use third party tools to convert your recordings, they will likely be put in the “Videos” section. That's not much fun!"

Believe it or not, I don't have a TV tuner connected to my PC, so I'm not able to test this, but I'm sure if I did this would be invaluable to me. I miss the days when I could record TV with my TV Wonder and copy it over to my Archos for watching on the train... OK, maybe I'll have to get myself a tuner card now...

YouTube Videos on Your Zune

Posted by Damion Chaplin in "Thoughts Media Off Topic" @ 12:00 PM

http://blogs.tech-recipes.com/shamanstears/2006/12/01/how-to-put-a-youtube-video-on-your-zune/

"While involving a few steps, it is very simple to put YouTube videos on your Zune. First, you will need a couple of utilities to accomplish this. You will need one utility to download the video off of YouTube (the FLV file) and another to convert the file to a Zune compatible video."

Awesome. Now you can share all those old G.I. Joe commercials with your less tech-savvy friends, coworkers and family! They don't know what they're missing. Check it out. :-)
