MC-TVConverter is a free GUI for various commandline video converters. It's mainly targeted to convert recordings from Microsoft Windows MediaCenter(WTV/DVR-MS), which introduced the new WTV format in Windows7 and Vista with TV-Pack. It's designed for easy use (drag'n drop, rightclick conversion, file filtering,...) and can be used to watch folders/subfolders for ongoing conversion in background. It converts wtv|dvr-ms|mpg|ts to mpg|ts|avi|mp4|flv|wmv (depends on input format) while streamcopying on selected formats is possible for fastest conversion speed possible.

Version history / Release notes / Changelog

Version 2.1.0

Fix: Pressing "delete" outside of MC-TVConverter window will remove item from list
Fix: Fast starting multiple instances of MC-TVConverter on startup will cause a "loop start" and DWM to crash
Fix: Fixed (hopefully) A/V sync issues when stream contains different audio encodings (just added the ffmpeg parameter "-async 48000" to profiles)
Fix: Files with uppercase characters in its extension have not been recognized as valid files
Fix: Adding metadata to MP4 files is called with faulty commandline if metadata contains line breaks
Fix: A lot of bugs when watching a folder and other small bugs
New: Added TP extension as valid input file (it's treated like a TS file)
New: Added MKV as new input filetype and the profiles for it
New: Added ability to cut files by setting a start and an end time - doubleclick on list item to set the cut values (also applies to custom profiles with ffmpeg, handbrake or mencoder!)
New: Added ability to demux TS, MPEG2 and DVR-MS files
New: Added status output for current file conversion while watching a folder
New: Option to use alternate method to convert files (most compatible results, slower). JAVA is not necessarily needed anymore because of this - though highly recommended for the best and fastest results!
New: Added a button to restart the GUI in settings - just for your convenience ;-)
New: Splitted option for commercial detection: only detect, or detect and cut
New: Press [F4] or [F3] for formatted or unformatted streaminfo of the selected file in the list
Update: ffmpeg (git-N-29079 -> git-N-33308-g6638207)
Update: ccextractor (v0.57 -> v0.58)
Update: mediainfo (v0.7.42 -> v0.7.50)
Update: AtomicParsley (v0.9 -> v0.9.4)

@previous poster: where did you read this tool can convert DRM protected files? It's nowhere stated that it can do this. Don't mix up DRM with DVR-MS which is just another video format from Microsoft (next to WTV) and this tools is also able to convert!

Tried this with several wtv files and it runs and never converts. This looks like it only works on non-DRM files which the built in software will do just fine. You shouldn't make a claim that it will convert all files unless it actually will do so.
