Default Any thoughts on transferring Yahoo Music Videos to 8100?

Please Login to Remove!

I found a site that, with the help of VLC, allows me to download Yahoo! Music Videos to my Mac as a WMV. (Yes, I said Mac) From there I convert it to an MP4 and bring it into my 8100's media card. The only problem I have is downsizing it to fit the screen, VLC doesn't do that, so I have a rather large file sitting on my media card.

I tried using the Roxy program that came with my BB but that doesn't help too much as it won't import the videos. (I'm running Parallels on my Mac) What file formats does the Roxy program take? Anyone have a better solution, OSX preferred.

Here's the link to get information on downloading the videos

Here's the instructions....complicated
It's old, but it works.


PS - I read the thread about importing videos, but my head exploded and I couldn't read more.

Try this freebie program. It does a lot of video conversions and it's FREE!

^ Your best option, you can convert almost any format including WMV & FLV (youtube).
