2)Getting the correct players
Generally,if you've downloaded the correct codecs,your normal Windows Media Player or Real Player should be able to play those video files.However there are still a few good players out there that comes with their own in-built codecs system or bundled with these codecs in them and these players are also able to play most of them.Here are the few good ones that i recommend
VLC media player
VLC - the cross-platform media player and streaming server
VLC media player is a highly portable multimedia player for various audio and video formats (MPEG-1, MPEG-2, MPEG-4, DivX, mp3, ogg, ...) as well as DVDs, VCDs, and various streaming protocols. It can also be used as a server to stream in unicast or multicast in IPv4 or IPv6 on a high-bandwidth network.

GOM Player
Codec Finder
GOM Player includes many codecs (XviD, DivX, FLV1, AC3, OGG, MP4, H263 and more) so you won't need to install separate codecs for most videos. For those videos that require a separate codec, GOM Player will find one and direct you to a place where you can download open source version of the codec. That way, you won't get stuck with unnecessary codecs on your system.
AVI files can't be played if the index is broken, or the file isn't completely downloaded. This is because index is located at the end of the file. GOM Player's patented technology enables users to view files with broken index or that are still being downloaded.
GOM Player supports SMI, SRT, RT, SUB(with IDX) files for subtitle. You can specify margin, location, size, resolution, font and others. You can also enable shadow, view ASF files with subtitle, karaoke subtitle mode. You can even synchronize subtitle and video if there's any mismatch.
GOM Player supports playlist formats such as M3U, PLS, ASX. You can include different media types on a playlist. Also, it also lets you edit playlists for different media types. It's easy to create and edit your own multimedia playlist with GOM Player.
Along with different media format such as AVI, MPG, MPEG and DAT, GOM Player also supports streaming Windows media format (WMV, ASF, ASX). You can also watch DVD-quality videos with 5.1 channel audio output.
Screen capture allows you to take a screenshot of your video directly from GOM Player. Using the Burst Capture feature, you can take continuous screenshots upto 999 shots.
There are other endless number of advanced features. Customize brightness, contrast and saturation. Sharpen and add noise to your video. Try audio equalizer. Repeat a section of your video with our A-B Repeat feature. Fast forward/rewind a few seconds using left/right keys. There are even more for you to discover!

Real Alternative
Real Alternative will allow you to play RealMedia files without having to install RealPlayer/RealOne Player.
You do need a player that is capable of playing RealMedia. The included Media Player Classic supports it and works very well. Supported: RealAudio (.ra .rpm), RealMedia (.rm .ram .rmvb .rpx .smi .smil), RealText (.rt), ReadPix (.rp), RealMedia embedded in webpages. .smi and .smil files sometimes only play the first part of a clip. This is a limitation of the current Media Player Classic. The RealMedia Browser plugin supports Internet Explorer, Opera, Netscape and Mozilla.
Some advantages compared to RealPlayer :
- Quick and easy install
- It's easy to make an unattended installation
- Proper uninstallation
- No background processes
- Use a player of your own choice
- Low on resources
- No advertising, no registration forms, nothing annoying
Limitations :
- .smi and .smil files only play the first part of a clip. This is only a problem when the clip consists of multiple parts. These files are not very common. These files do play correctly when embedded in a browser.
- The RealMedia DirectShow splitter does not work with streaming content. You must use the included Media Player Classic to play streaming content.

3)Joining or Splitting Files
In most cases when trying to upload a large file,most of us will split the files into smaller chunks because, so that we can manage the files we want to upload easily,most free hosting sites offer only small size per file upload,able to repost easily whichever part needs to re-upload and so on.And to achieve this without using video splitters,we use file splitters which are fast and easy to use.The below are the more popular and easier ones.
The File Splitter
The File Splitter is a free Windows program that will split any file into pieces of any size and later combine the pieces to form the original file. This could prove useful in a number of situations:
Suppose you need to transfer a file from one stand-alone computer to another. A floppy disk is often the only possible means for transferring the file, but if the file is larger than 1.44 megabytes, it won't fit on a single floppy. Simply split the file onto floppy disks, and then copy the pieces from the floppy disks to the other computer and easily reconstruct the original file.
Many email systems place a limit on the size of an email message. What if you want to email someone a file that is larger than the maximum size? Split the file into pieces smaller than the limit and email the individual pieces.
There are many other possibilities for using The File Splitter. I'm sure you can think of a situation where The File Splitter would be helpful.
It has been claimed the The File Splitter is faster than HJ Split
Download The File Splitter here:
http://www.dekabyte.com/filesplitter/
HJ-Split
Freeware file splitter for a variety of platforms.
Why split files? Think of a file of 20 Mb, and try to send this to a friend. Using email this does not succeed, it is simply too large, and how to put it onto a floppy? HJSplit will enable you to split the large file into smaller chunks, which can be much more easily sent and stored. Later on these chunks can be re-joined using HJSplit itself or HJJoin.
HJSplit is available for a large number of operating systems:
Windows 95/98/NT/2000/XP, Linux, Java, OS/2, Windows 3.x, MS DOS, Amiga. For the MAC there is a compatible file joiner available.
Created by Freebyte.com in cooperation with various programmers.

Tips to know
Presuming you're going to download 7 links which is 7 splitted chunks of the file,make sure you download all 7 parts of them into the same folder,if not HJ Split will not be able to search and extract successfully.
Files that have been splitted by HJ Split ends with a .001,.002 and so on.You should not rename the files after you've splitted them.The correct file format for an avi file i.e should end in xxxxx.avi.001
To join back the splitted files,open up HJ Split,open the folder which contains all the download splitted files,you should able to see only the first file which ends with .001 Once you've click to join that .001 file,HJ Split will automatically search the other 6 hidden .002 -.007 files in that very same folder and start extracting.
If your downloaded splitted files ends in a .zip.001 extension,it means you'll need to unzip them with an archive utility like Winzip after you joined them with HJ Split.Should the file for example ends in a .ize.001 or .7z.001 ,the before extension - .ize or .7z before the .001 is the extension of the arhive utility that was used to zipped it.So therefore you'll the appropriate archive utility to do so in this case.
4)Capture Screenshots
Windows Media Player 9
If you are using Windows Media Player 9, pause the video at the scene you wish to capture.
Press Ctrl+i (that's control key plus letter 'i'). Think of the 'i' as "image."
The "Save Captured Image" dialogue will open up. Choose the folder you wish to save the image in -- choose the file type (either JPG or BMP) and give it a file name (default name is "capture.") Click on "Save."
If you plan on doing any further manipulation of the saved image it's best to save it as a BMP to retain the original quality. You can use Paint (or other app) to save it as a JPG later (Preview pics for PureTnA should always be JPG).
You can't take a screenshot if the program is using overlays to display the picture.
In windows media player you can disable overlays and screenshots will work, I recommend you re-enable them afterwards.
Tools>Options>Performance Tab>Advanced -- uncheck "use overlays" if it is checked. If that doesn't work, turn video acceleration all the way down.
Windows Media Player 10
Guess what? It's exactly the same procedure as WMP 9.
Media Player Classic
This is NOT a Microsoft product -- it's open-source (free) and works very well even though it looks like the old MS Windows Media Player 6.4. It's easy enough for beginners yet has options and features for the more advanced user. Get MPC from: http://sourceforge.net/projects/guliverkli/
On that page you will find it under the "Latest File Releases" with a "Download" link.
1. When you load the video in MPC pause it and go to [File], [Save Thumbnails].
2. A dialog should popup In the dropdown box where it says file name, choose whatever you want or use the default name
3. Set the file type to .jpg - .bmp images will not upload here
4. For the thumbnails options select however many rows and colums you want for the screenshots. The product of the columns and rows will tell you how many screenshots will be taken i.e. 4 rows x 4 columns = 16 screenshots
5. For image width, though the PreUpload page states 800 px should be the maximum width but you can go as high as 1024 px without causing too much trouble for users here
6. Referring to 4 and 5 - you should bear in mind the wider the image you make and (to a lesser extent) the more rows/colums you make, the larger the file size will be and remember you can't adjust quality. It's best to do no more than 8 rows by 8 columns for 800 px wide pictures and 6 rows by 6 columns for 1024 px wide pictures to keep under 256 KB . If you plan to use a different imagehost such as imagefap.com or jpghosting.com or hidebehind.com you can make the image wider and have more rows and columns.
7. Click [Save]
8. Depending on the length of the clip and your processor speed, it will take between a few seconds and 5 minutes to scan the video and produce the screenshots
NOTE 1 - you can't manually pick the frames you want, the only option is to adjust the number of rows OR columns to alter the number of images it shows and as a result your shots will differ
NOTE 2 - you get the "GetCurrentImage hr=8000ffff" error, you need to change the Playback Output. Go to [View], [Options], [Playback], [Output]. If the file type is .avi, .mpg or .wmv change the DirectShow Video button to "VMR7 (windowed)" or "VMR9 (windowed)". If the file type is .rm or .mov use the "DirectX 9" option. Now click [Apply] and screenshots now work.
BSPlayer
BSplayer is a free Windows player that plays back all kinds of media files
(avi /mpg /asf /wmv /wav /mp3 /ogm ) and spe++++++es in video and divx playback.
Get it here: http://www.bsplayer.org/
By pressing Shift + P, BSplayer captures at the resolution you see the movie (what you see is what you get).
The button P captures at the movie's original resolution according to their Web site -- but I don't see the difference myself although I've only used it
infrequently. Whichever you choose, the image is saved in the same directory BSPlayer resides in and uses the filename format of 'bscap000.jpg' with each successive capture increasing the number by 1.
VLC Media Player
[Ctrl+S] to bring up your preferences, click [Video] and under "Snapshot", choose a folder to save screenshots and save them as .jpg format. Now click [Save] then [OK]. Now when you play the video in VLC, just click [Video] in the menu then [Snapshot] and the screenshots will be saved in your snapshot folder and voila!
PowerDVD
Click the camera icon.
ATI Media Player
If you have an ATI video card, you might have this.
Same as PowerDVD -- Just click the camera icon.
Other Screen Capture Utilities
IrfanView
Free for non-commercial use only.

5)Converting/Ripping DVD and AVIs
Ripping a DVD to AVI with Good Results.
We are gonna start this with using two free programs. DVD Decrypter and AutoGK.
Starting with the first process. We are gonna need to Copy the files from the DVD
to the hard drive. For this we use DVD Decrypter.
1.Once you have loaded the DVD into the Drive. Open DVD Decrypter.
2.The program will usually detect the DVD itself. If not select file, and browse to the drive containing the disc and select it.
3.Choose the Destination you want to save the files to. It will be saved in a folder labeled
VIDEO_TS. Make sure you remember where you save it.
4.Now just click the button on the bottom left to begin copying (decrypt).
That's pretty much it for DVD Decrypter. Pretty simple to do. It will take some time to
copy the files though.You can download DVD Decrypter here http://www.dvddecrypter.com/index.php?act=download It's freeware.
Now getting the DVD files to AVI.
We are going to use a Freeware application called AutoGK.
1.After starting up the program make sure the DVD input box it selected.
2.Select the input directory and choose the folder that you ripped with DVD Decrypter (VIDEO_TS or whatever you named it).
3.Now you need to select the file size that you would like have. You can choose from 175mb up to 2Gb with the predefined output size option. You can also choose your own custom file size. Which ever you feel works best for the results you want.
4.Now you'll want to configure your settings. Choose the Advanced Settings button and do the following. For the Output Resolution Settings select Auto Width. For your codec you should use XviD,as you will get the best results. You will need the XviD codec installed if you don't already.For the Audio settings your best bet is to select CBR MP3 for the audio codec. Using VBR (a Variable bitrate is not a good idea. Constant Bitrate will make it more compatible with other apps).
5.Now in the Job Queue select the file you are going to encode,then select Add Job and select Start. AutoGK will now start encode to AVI using several other programs that are installed with AutoGK.
AutoGK is a simplified version of Gordon Knot. Taking all of the pain out of having to set up several different apps to get them all to work for what you are wanting the end result to be.
It can be downloaded here http://www.autogk.me.uk/modules.php?name=Downloads
Now I will give you fair warning that AutoGK is known to contain a file known to be Spyware.
But you don't have to freak out because it's not going to completely corrupt your system. To remove it.Just go to your system32 directory in the windows folder and search for dae.dll and delete it. Restart your computer,then run a program like Spybot Search and Destroy to make sure nothing is left over. I wouldn't suggest people to use this software if this was a big problem,and it's such a great program that it's easy to deal with for the results that you get.
Converting a AVI to DVD
For this we are going to use a free program called TMPGEnc.
Many people are familiar with this program so I am going just do a quick rundown.
1.After starting the program and loading the AVI file, click the load button and select the DVD (NTSC or PAL)template.
2.Now TMPGEnc will automaticly select the Audio and Video codec settings you will need for a DVD compatible MPEG2 file.
3.Now you can just select start and wait for it to finish encoding (could be a while).
4.If your video you are encoding happens to be paticularly longer than say 90 minutes,you will need to adjust some video bitrate settings in order for it to be able to fit onto a DVDR.
5.To do this,select the load button again (before you start encoding). And double click the Extra folder and then select the unlock template. If you've already selected the DVD template and then you select the unlock template, you still have the DVD compliant settings set for you. But this time you can adjust the to how you will need them.
6.Now to customize you video and audio bitrate settings click the selct button. You will see the video settings tab first. Find the Rate Control Mode and change Constant Quality to Constant Bitrate in the drop down menu. Then under it change the bitrate from 7000 to whatever you will need. Start with 6000 Kbps for 100 to 120 minute video. If it's longer then go lower. It's really just a guess as I don't know the exact bitrates for the exact amount of time.
7.At the bottom you will see the Motion Search Precision setting. This is up to you. Normal will give good quality in a reasonable amount of time. But the Higher settings will be even better,but encode time will be even longer (depending on the specs of your computer).
8.Now skip over to the Audio tab. By default the DVD setting will the audio bitrate to 384 Kbps. You can leave it that way or if you want to squeeze more out of the video bitrate to keep it a little higher you can change the audio bitrate. I wouldn't really go any lower than 224 kbps though (just my preference). Make sure to leave the audio Sampeling Frequncey at 48000 Hz to remain DVD MPEG2 compliant.
9.After you have finished changed you setting just click ok,and then start the encoding.
If you've got time you may want to play around with different settings to see what different results you will get,to see what works best for what you are looking for.
You can get the free version of TMPGEnc here http://www.tmpgenc.net/e_download.html
For burning DVD's there are many programs that can be used. Personally I like to use TMPEnc DVD Author. But there are lots out there. You can find many tools and tutorials for Video Editing/Burning at this site http://www.videohelp.com/
6)How To Save Youtube and other embeded Videos
Note: I have tried to gear this to novices.
One of the fun things we come across here in the forum, is embeded videos.
They're fun! Click one, and it plays right there in the post!
But what if we want to save it on our computer?
Sure, we could find some fancy software, or if we have FF, some extension that might do it, but there actually is an easy way, that doesn't require anything you don't already have. And the reason is... it has already been downloaded to your computer!!!
Now, before I continue, you will probably want to play the videos offline. Most of the embeded videos will be FLV files. Many media players, like Windows Media Player, do not play FLV files. If you don't have an FLV player, here's the one I use. It's freeware.
http://www.tekool.net/flash/flv_player/index_en.html
Once it's installed, it's time to get those videos! You will find them in your Temporary Internet Files. I have XP with IE7, so depending on your system, you might get to them slightly different. Go to Start/Control Panel/Internet Options. Your Browser Settings should have an option to view the files.
The folder should say Temporary Internet Files. It has everything you have seen online, pictures, pages, videos, etc. It also has your cookies.
To make your videos easy to find, go to View/Arrange Icons By, and select Type. Now all your files are grouped by the type they are.
Now, there is another FLV video to watch for. It's marked B, and has "get_video" in the name. We'll talk about those in a second.
Okey dokey, copy all those videos like the one marked A, to a permanent folder, like your Video folder. Go to that Folder and rename them before you play them. Keep the ones you want, delete the ones you don't want. It's that easy!
Now, let's talk about the video marked B. Copy it to your permanent folder. Go to the permanent folder and rename it, but add an FLV extension. For example, you could rename it Vid.flv
When you do that, it should change to looking like the videos marked A. It's ready to go!
And that's it! That's all there is to it! It takes a while to say what to do, but once you get going, you'll find that it only takes a moment to actually do it!
Oh yes, one more thing. What if that video you saw isn't an FLV video, what if it's a WMV? You'll find any WMV videos towards the end of the Temporary Internet Files, after the cookies. You can't miss them! Just copy them to a permanent folder and rename them, like you did with the FLV files.
Have fun!

ZIP, handled by Windows XP nativelly, Winzip, Winrar or 7Zip
7IP, handled by 7zip
The thumbrule on this one is that if in the new folder that your download created are several files chances are they are packed archives.
The folder content might look like this:

movie.sfv           
movie.rar           
movie.r01           
movie.r02           
movie.r03           
----                                 
movie.r59SFV stands for Simple File Verification.
Some of the downloaded files in the Net come bundled with a file that has an extension of .sfv -- this file is simply a verification file for the downloaded file itself.
SFV is basically a mathematical short checksum number based on the original file. When user downloads the original file and the .sfv file, user can use dedicated SFV check programs that use the SFV data to check the status of the downloaded file. If the SFV's checsum data doesn't match to the data that the validation program gets from the downloaded file, it typically means that the downloaded file is not complete or that the downloaded file has been corrupted during the transfer and needs to be downloaded again. Use QuickSFV v2.34 to verify your files.
Before you can do anything with these archived files , you have to unpack (extract) the content.
Unpacked:
ISO, IMG, BIN/CUE, these can be directlly burned to cd / dvd-r or you can mount them as a virtual dc-rom/dvd-rom
by using eighter Deamon Tools or Alchohol 120% virtual driver. The main difference is that Deamon Tools virtual driver
supports the emulation of differnet copyprotections.(safeDisc, Securom) and thus works better with DVD games labeled CLONEDVD
To Burn these cds/dvds you can use Nero or Alcohol 120%.(or yes i know a large choice of other burners)
DAA
Very hated format by most people .daa files themselves require you to install special converter software like Power ISO to view the .daa file format.
MDF
One of several CD image formats that Alcohol 120% can mount/create. Alcohol 120% is used for media backup. Iso Buster can interpret these files directly.
Fianlly we have the very common:
AVI
This is mainly eighter DIVX or XVID encoded video that is widelly available in the torrent sites. Recently there are more and more fakes labeled avi that ask you to download a special third party player, that is available free , DON'T! it's a MALWARE!This file derives from the words Audio Video Interleaved. This file format is the child of developers at Microsoft. It's one of the most common ways to store video. However, sometimes non-Windows computers won't play .avi files.
I read int the forums that many wishes for some wierd reason to convert these avi files to DVDR. My first reaction would be WHY don't you instead download the dvdr version of it, however i realise that some might want to save their bandwidth. Well before you convert to dvdr you might want to check out a few things and for that i suggest Media INFO. You should check if it is PAL/NTSC if it is XVID or DIVX so forth BEFORE you set your computer to convert it to DVD.
Note however that the quality will suck big time since both Xvid and Divx file formats are heavilly compressed videoformats.
WMV
This file extension stands for Windows Media Video. This form of video file was also created by Microsoft. Videos stored in this format can not be played on non-Windows computers without a free plug-in.
MPG/MPEG
This file extension stands for Moving Pictures Expert Group. This is one of the most common ways to store video files on the Internet. This type of video extension is not browser or video player specific, which is why it is so commonly embraced.
MOV
This type of file was created by Apple. These video files can only be played using Apple's Quicktime player. A .mov file can't be played on a Windows computer unless a free component is downloaded and installed.
FLV
Known as Flash Video File used by many video streaming sites like Youtube,Metacafe and so on.The FLV format is an open format that is also supported by non-Adobe/Macromedia programs; FLV files may be exported from QuickTime Pro or other applications that can export to the QuickTime file format.Macromedia was acquired by Adobe in 2005, so Macromedia Flash Player is now Adobe Flash Player.
SWF
This file extension stands for Shock Wave Flash. This type of file was created by Macromedia. You will not be able to play videos with the .swf extension unless you have the proper plug-in installed. If you use Internet Explorer or Netscape you already have the necessary component needed to view these types of video files.
RMVB
RMVB is a RealMedia Variable Bitrate file. This is one of the newer formats from Real for publishing video files, which is quickly becoming a popular format for Anime and Asian movie titles because of smaller file sizes and lower bitrates with exceptional quality compared to DivX, which has long been the standard for trading videos online. There are two options for playing back the file.
You can either playback the file by downloading and installing the latest version of RealPlayer, which is free despite all the shenanigans the Real site puts you through trying to get you to try the SuperPass. The second option is to use Real Alternative which plays back RealMedia files outside of RealPlayer.
OGM
OGM is the Ogg Vorbis video container format, similar to AVI or MP4, that generally contains Ogg Vorbis audio and a video stream that is often DivX, XviD or Theora video format. To play an OGM file, you have one of two easy options.
The cross-platform solution for playing back OGM files on Windows, Mac OS X and Linux is VLC Media Player. VLC supports playback of OGM, MP4, MOV, most MPEG files and most other audio and video formats. The most glaring omission from the list of supported formats is RealMedia files. After installing VLC Player, the OGM video file should automatically playback using VLC.
Magic ISO Universal Image Format File
Universal Image Format (UIF) is a compression image file format for backing up CD/DVDs
MKV
The Matroska Multimedia Container is an open standard free multimedia container format that can hold an unlimited number of video, audio, picture or subtitle tracks inside a single file.[1] Matroska is similar to other containers like AVI, MP4 or ASF.
And if you want to know more about file types,here's a pretty much useful list i use to refer to now and then

8)The DVD (Video) file structure
To manipulate DVDs discs effectively, you need to understand a little about the file structure. This file structure is the same for all commercial DVD movies or DVD Video discs of your own home movies. The main data files have a VOB extension, but there are various types of VOB files and other files as well.

Here's a brief guide:
VIDEO_TS.IFO. The 'Video [Title Set] Manager Information Set' is a configuration file that defines the disc structure and also includes region coding information.
VIDEO_TS.VOB. The 'Video [Title Set] Object file for VMG Menu', this file works like a bookmark to tell the player that it is the start of the disc.
VIDEO_TS.BUP. Backup file of the' Video Manager Information Set' (VIDEO_TS.IF0).
VTS_01_0.IFO. The' Video Title Set Information Configuration` file for the first lot of VOB files, it also tells the player how to proceed when using the on screen menu system (essentially the first entry point and works like a marker). IFO files contain the formatting information of the VOB files, which tells the DVD player exactly how the DVD should be played (eg. aspect ratio, subtitles, languages, menus ...). If you rip the DVD without IFO files, then the VOB files may not play correctly, or may not even play at all. Similarly for conversion, IFO files are essential for video converters which support IFO parsing; you will need them if you want to encode videos, or fix multi-angle ripping problems.
VTS_01_0.VOB. 'Video Object Set for Video Title Set Menu', the first video and audio stream sequence to be played usually the on screen menu system. These files may contain several streams of audio/video "multiplexed" (MUX) together (eg. chapters/language selections).
VTS_01_0.BUP. Backup file of the' Video Title Set Information' file (VTS 01_1.IFO).
VTS_01_1.VOB. The first 'Video Title Object Set' file, the main file containing the picture and audio streams. It is usually split into three to four files, each with ascending filenames; for example
VTS_01_1.VOB
VTS_01_2.VOB
VTS_01_3.V0B
and so on. No VOB file is to exceed 1GB in size, with a maximum total of five VOB files in sequence on a single layer disc (DVD 5) and no more than nine on a dual layer disc (DVD 9). VOB files have a naming standard: where VTS_xx_yy.VOB
xx - Title number
yy - Section number
A DVD can also include additional Video Title Sets that include the IFO, VOB and BUP with ascending filenames such as VTS_02_1, VTS_03_1 and so on. These are usually the extra features that come with the title, such as documentaries and behind-the-scenes footage. They can also be copied individually to your hard drive.
Each title has at least 2 VOBs (one for the menu and one for the main feature) and exactly one ifo and bup file.
The VIDEO_TS.* files represent the first play item. This is an item being set during authoring and is the first thing being played when the disc is inserted in the player. Usually this is just a copyright notice, but it could also be a menu where to select the language of the menu, some trailers, etc. The VIDEO_TS.VOB contains the video and audio data, the VIDEO_TS.IFO the navigational data and VIDEO_TS.BUP is the backup for VIDEO_TS.IFO.
