Whenever i try to convert my .avi videos to .amv format using AMV convert tool, the convert tool converts only 1 sec of the video before it crashes (amvtransform.exe has encountered a problem and needs to close).
How do i get past this problem? And are there any other programs out there which i can use?
Most probably the problem is in some stupid little driver on your system that AMV converter uses, and you can't track it to know which one...
Take those videos and the AMV converter program to some other computer and try it there (to make sure that generaly it can be converted, but the problem is specificaly in your computer).
Try some other movie files. Maybe the problem is in videos themselves. (if that's problem then you should recompress those videos with some video utility to a format that doesn't make trouble to AMV converter)
Maybe the problem is in AMV converter you have. Maybe the problem is in operating system you have on your computer...
PS: Also - there are some videos that have some kind of stupid protection for some reason so you can only watch them but you can't operate on those videos (no recompressing, no converting, nothing). But I doubt someone would put a protection on short video clips (and I guess you are talking about them, so this doesn't apply to your problem, but, heck - just know that even these complications are possible (once I had to record an episode of some series in AVi format from my PC to VCR tape, then played it and recorded it on PC in AVI format of my choice, and only then I could sucessfuly convert it in AMV - that was nice))
