    converting .vro files to .avi

    I’m trying to convert some .vro files to .avi so that I can send some dvd’s to Daughter1 at University (she's studying medicine and the dvd's are recordings of that German chappie who cuts up bodies an tv, and thinks he's Joseph Beuys). My dvd recorder (the one under the telly) records in this format (.vro). I did a search last night but could only come up with a paid for app called avs converter. It’s cheap, but I’d rather go free if possible. Can anyone help?

    On my DVD recorder, you can "finalise" the disc, and it becomes playable in pratically all DVD players. I'm sure yours would be the same!

    yup, I've finalized my disc, but all it shows are .vro files. I should have said that she's only got her laptop to play it on.

    Try renaming the .VRO to a .MPG or .MPEG then treat it as and mpeg and find a free mpg to avi converterer.

    Or

    You can get VSO DivX to DVD
    http://www.videohelp.com/tools?tool=vso_DivXtoDVD

    This can actually take loads of input files such as avi wmv mpg etc and makes a nice dvd from it. You can also buy their software called copy to dvd and then you have a one click solution to make dvd's

    Is that it? Yes it is. In fact it's better than that. Having renamed the file *.MPEG, it immediately played on my machine. Ta very much indeed.

    There is an article about converting VRO files from DVD recorders and Mini-DVD disc, you can have a look, i just use the video converter and convert my VRO files successfully with high quality.

    How to convert VRO files from DVD Recorder or Mini-DVD Disc?

    Try handbrake.fr - Kim Komando recommends it at her site and it worked for me. Best part is, it's free.

    Have you tried using Handbrake to convert VRO files to AVI?

    Hint. It won't work.
