I've been making music videos (the fan kind) since 2004, but searching for clips to make videos is a pain in the ass, not to mention a waste of good time. Somehow or another I've managed succeed with downloading .WMV Formatted Trailers/Clips and creating videos to my hearts to delight, but this is steadily becoming harder to do when I want a change of scenery (different clips). Windows Media and MPEG formats aren't very popular, given the lack of them available to download, unlike .AVI - .MOV - formats which you find a hearty abundance. Getting to the point, I wanted to Rip my TRANSFORMERS DVD for music video making purposes only, but I'm unsure if DVD-Ripping Programs are safe for the DVD or my computer themselves. Will either function correctly after I download the program and create video files for my purposes? Plus, can you convert them to .WMV formats and not the latter .AVI (because for some reason, .AVI files don't work on my computer. I get sound, sometimes, but no picture)?
