Off topic thread - Jan said move here!
This is the last post from Jan from this thread http://www.knittinghelp.com/forum/sh...d.php?t=111103

This topic when AWOL a long time ago and the OP (artlady) joined in so I think it's okay.. I suppose we should start a new thread for KDTV in the lounge. Go for it!

I have had Dells for years with no problems, but I know some people complain. Then again there's a lemon or two in any bunch. One of my DD has a Mac and loves it. I'm too used to windows at this point and my DH couldn't handle it. He can use google and email and I'm always helping him as it is.
So here we are!

Did I tell you I have a Dell? I might have, I don't remember, but I do have a Dell Inspiron 6000 and I've had not a problem with it. Of course, Windows on this is ancient history now. For the videos I think I'll plug in the other monitor, this is LCD and it's LED and bigger and would provide for greater viewing pleasure. I might even figure out how to have the 2 screens have different displays so I can have my video on the big one and whatever else I want on this screen.

I want to start my videos tomorrow, who else is getting in on the fun? I have season 1 of the Knitting Daily videos, I plan to start at the beginning.

I don't think I can copy the download to DVD! One of my burners isn't working properly so I have to use the other one. The other one doesn't seem to want to copy at least from Real Player. I'm not sure how to put a video on my computer. Geez... I don't do this stuff anymore and I'm dense as a rock.

Also... no I didn't know you had a Dell or I forgot. Mine is a desktop. Dell XPS 420. Oooooold! I hope I can figure out the copying thing so I can start watching them in a comfortable place.

I don't think Real Player should be involved in burning a DVD from the d/l. I think you would go into your DVD burning software and just copy the files as you downloaded them to the DVD.

ETA OK, I did a google and Real Player isn't what I thought it was, so never mind. I thought it was just a player and not for burning DVDs. My bad. Many apologies.

I knew it was for videos, but I didn't know you could burn from it either so don't worry about it! It popped up when I clicked on the video from my desktop.

You know what, I think I DO have DVD burning software! Yes, it's been that long since I've used it! I'll give that a try.

See you did help!

Any time I have to do something I have to go google and google and google some more. I remember burning DVDs when I d/l my OS, other than that I'd have had no idea. Hope you get them burned. I want us to be able to watch *together*...I promise not to hog the popcorn.

That rings a bell but I can't find it now. I know ArtLady has one.

Ugh. Still working on this.. I tried using the software and it's a bigger file than the DVDs of course, but that seemed to hold it up. If all else fails I can get my daughter's boyfriend to see if he can do it. They'll be over Sunday.

I don't want to hold you up though so go ahead and watch.

I hope you don't have to wait till Sunday, but that will work...calling in reenforcements is almost always a good idea. This is so frustrating for you. I'm sorry it got so danged complicated.

I've downloaded a couple free burners and they both put a watermark on the video unless you buy it. How is that free?!! Sheesh!
