Question video files

I need help. Im proficient with a pc but not an expert. I mainly use them to record, play, download, videos and music. My problem is that when I am trying to watch different videos from over the net they come in different file types. avi. wmv. mov. mpeg. etc. I got winamp to rip all my muxic into mp3 format, but i don;t know of any software that will rip all types of videos into one standard file type like mpeg. I could get a bunch of different media players to watch them but I don't want the added confusion. Can anyone help me out.

thanks

I don't think there is a thing. You can turn all your files into Divx-AVIs? With Dr. Divx? Thats the best I can think of.

Movie Maker will only save them in .wmv which personally I hate.

Dr. Divx is expensive though; don't remmember how much - about 40 I think. I won't say how I got it

I like the Divx Formats though; and with Dr. Divx there isn't all that crappy advertising which is on the Divx Player.

Please explain "rip" Do you mean convert ?
Windows Media plays all video,why worry about makeing them all mpg for instance ?
Yes it can be done but a hell of a lot of work.

Windows Media Player doesn't play RealMedia .rm files or without the Player installed does it play Divx Videos.

Personally I'm happy having 3 Players.

Yeah - I use the same sort of thing; Windows Media Player for everything that will work on it, MusicMatch for Audio, Divx Player for Divxs, RealPlayer for Realmedia just incase, and Quicktime for Internet Stuff and .mov. Works for me.

Angry Locked out as well

I recently locked myself out of my di-624 router......trying to have some form of security with my mediaserver, it would not pick up my wireless network so I decided to go back to WEP from the MAC address, so the first address I delete, being careless and frustrated, is the one to my computer and as the above post said resetting does not help, it is kind of funny however......guess I will be taking it back.
