I am reinstalling Movie Salsa on my netbook and have run into a snag that I wan't anticipating - Windows Media Encoder 9 SDK needs the Windows Media Encoder Application to run correctly.
I am using WME to convert the .avi file that is created by Movie Salsa to a .wmv format file. However, without the WME application, the routines won't run. Microsoft has pulled the WME 9 Application from their website now but still has the SDK for it available.
My question is this, if I can't use WME, what are my options for converting AVI files to WMV or some other format that results in smaller filesizes?
I've had this running for the past 5 years without any problems until I switched over to my netbook and now the Movie Salsa post processing batch routines don't work.
