Convert WTV files to mpg, mp4 and other formats with Kingsley WTV Converter

There are many times you record something in Windows Media Center and want to watch it on another device and there are lots of conversion tools out there. The latest one is a comprehensive application that will convert from a range of formats including wtv,mkv and mpeg4 into mpg,mov,mkv,m44 and other formats. So you could use it to convert a wtv file into mp4 so it can be watched on a device like the iPad. You could also use it to convert things line the aspect ration, video delay and the audio quality. I will try it with a Freeview HD file and see how that goes and it won’t work with copy protected Media Center recorded due to the DRM restrictions

The tool costs £10 and there is a trial version works five times before locking you out, you can get the trial version from and purchase an unlock key from the developers web site.
