#324: Video!!

I went to Best Buy today for a DVI monitor cable. $20 later I had one, and after fiddling with the computer for about 10 minutes I now have my desktop spanning this monitor and my 35" TV.

I'll have to try Diablo on it....

Anyway, I spent the afternoon dumping some downloaded anime episodes to DVD, and I am very happy with the output quality. It looked just fine on the big screen. Granted these are 230 MB video files, so they're not exactly low-quality. I expect other files may not be as good...

It took me 2 hours to convert 2 hours of video to DVD. I lose the nifty formatting options that mastering a disk offers. To be honest I haven't tried to master a DVD on this machine yet; it may convert video much faster than real-time--but I'm not entirely sure I care now. The TV-out option lets me record anything I can display on-screen, and that's a good thing to be able to do.

It sure will make the Creamy Mami project easier to manage.
