Transparent line on top only when a video its played


is this a DVD/BluRay movie or is this a movie file like an MPG, AVI or MP4? If it's a movie disc then you should try a different codec or different player. If it's a video file it was probably transcoded that way and you would have to crop it and re-transcode it it in video editing software.

Tip

Top 10 free video converters


Many video file formats, so many handheld video players, so many online video sites, and so little time. To have your favorite clips how you want them—whether that's on your iPod, iPhone, PSP or desktop—you need the right utility to convert them into the format that works for you. Commercial video converter software's aplenty, but there are several solid free utilities that can convert your video files on every operating system, or if you've just got a web browser and a quick clip. Put DVDs on your iPod, YouTube videos on DVD, or convert any video file with today's top 10 free video rippers, encoders and converters.
1. Handbrake (Open source/Windows, Mac)
Back up your DVD's to digital file with this open source DVD to MPEG-4 converter app. See also how to rip DVDs to your iPod with Handbrake.

dvdshrink.pngCopy a DVD to your hard drive and leave off all the extras like bonus footage, trailers and other extras to save space with DVD Shrink. Download Adam's one-click AutoHotkey/DVD Shrink utility to rip your DVDs to your hard drive for skip-free video play from scratchy optical media.
Honorable mention: DVD Decrypter, which Windows peeps can use to copy DVDs to their iPods.
3. iSquint (Freeware/Mac OS X only)
isquint.png Convert any video file to iPod-sized versions and automatically add the results to your iTunes library. iSquint is free.
4. VidDownloader (webapp)
When you don't want to mess with installing software to grab that priceless YouTube clip before it gets yanked, head over to web site VidDownloader which sucks in videos from all the big streaming sites (YouTube, Google Video, iFilm, Blip.TV, DailyMotion, etc.), converts them for you to a playable format and offers them for download. Other downloaders for online video sites buy you a Flash FLV file, but VidDownloader spits back an AVI file.
5. Hey!Watch (webapp)
Web application Hey!Watch converts video located on your computer desktop as well as clips hosted on video sites. Upload your video to Hey!Watch to encode it into a wide variety of file formats, like H264, MP4, WMV, DivX, HD Video, Mobile 3GP/MP4, iPod, Archos and PSP. Hey!Watch only allows for 10MB of video uploads per month for free, and from there you pay for what you use, but it's got lots of neat features for video publishers like podcast feed generation and automatic batch processing with options you set once.
6. AVS Video Converter (Freeware/Windows only)
avs-video-converter-box.gifRip and burn personal DVDs, convert video, create HD Video, split, join, edit, apply effects, copy to mobile devices!
Convert almost all video formats including DivX, XviD, MOV, rm, rmvb, MPEG, VOB, DVD, WMV, AVI to MPEG-4 movie format for iPod/PSP or other portable video device, MP4 player or smart phone with Any Video Converter, which also supports user-defined video file formats as the output.
Key features: Convert Video between Almost Any Formats, Convert within Minimum Time, Create Movie DVDs, Manage Videos from HD-Cameras, Convert & Edit Blu-Ray Video, Output Videos to Various Devices, Make Videos Ready for Website, Straight from Disc to PC, Extract Soundtracks and images from Movies.
7. Videora Converter (Freeware/Windows only)
videora.pngVideora Converter is a set of programs, each designed to convert regular PC video files into a format tailored to your favorite video-playing handheld device. The Videora program list includes iPod Video Converter (for 5th gen iPods), iPod classic Video Converter (for 6th gen classic iPods), iPod nano Video Converter (for 3rd gen iPod nanos), iPod touch Video Converter, iPhone Video Converter, Videora Apple TV Converter, PSP Video 9, Videora Xbox360 Converter, Videora TiVo Converter, and Videora PMP Converter.
Honorable Mention: DVD to iPod Converter for Windows converts YouTube and other online videos to iPod format.
8. . Avi2Dvd (Freeware/Windows)
avi2dvd.pngMake your video files burnable to a DVD with Avi2Dvd, a utility that converts
Avi/Ogm/Mkv/Wmv/Dvd files to Dvd/Svcd/Vcd format. Avi2Dvd can also produce DVD menus with chapter, audio, and subtitle buttons.


9. MediaCoder (Open source/Windows)

Batch convert audio and video compression formats with the open source Media Coder for Windows, which works with a long laundry lists of formats, including MP3, Ogg Vorbis, AAC, AAC+, AAC+V2, MusePack, WMA, RealAudio, AVI, MPEG/VOB, Matroska, MP4, RealMedia, ASF/WMV, Quicktime, and OGM, to name a few.
10. VLC media player (Open source/All platforms)
vlc.pngOk, so VLC is a media player, not converter, but if you're watching digital video, it's a must-have—plus VLC can indeed rip DVD's, as well as play ripped discs in ISO format (no actual optical media required.) VLC can also play FLV files downloaded from YouTube et al, no conversion to AVI required. Since there's a portable version, VLC's a nice choice for getting your DVD rips/saved YouTube video watching on wherever you go.

I will ask if i can download windows 7 on linux acer aspire 4738?there will be a problem?


there won't be any problem as far as Windows and Linux, but this is a fairly involved procedure.You'll first need to create a Windows partition on your hard disk in NTFS file system format. Otherwise,Windows might overwrite / erase your linux installation when Windows 7 installs.
make the windows partition the "Primary" or "Boot" partition.
When Windows 7 installs, it may ask if you want to delete the linux partition.Answer "NO" to this.
The next concern is which operating system will boot by default,Windows or Linux.
I had no problem doing this with Windows Vista, and whe Vista booted,it listed a choice of operating systems to boot,and I would select either Windows Vista or Ubuntu Linux.

You can access your data by putting the hard drive in another computer, or you can install another operating system like Linux, and linux is able to read your windows files.

I have an acer aspire one laptop and have tried to connect my orange mobile dongle to it but it wont actually connect is this something to do with linux and if so can i do something about it?


WIFI dongles are very scewy anyway let alone one trying to use a third party operating system. I have never seen one that stated it was compatable with Linux so yes it prolly is a conflict with your operating system. That PC runs great with XP or Win7 buy an OEM CD off Newegg for about $99. All ur drivers are on Acers website. The only 1 u will need to load is the SD card the others are embedded in XP and Win7. If u use Win7 u may try the Vista driver 4 the SD card.

My acer aspire 4520 unexpected turn off


If you formatted your disc, you have erased your hard drive and its operating system.

To reinstall your operating system you will need a CD/DVD drive. You can get Windows or Linux. You can download a copy from another computer and burn it to CD. Linux is free, and an easy version to start with is Ubuntu. You can download it here: http://www.ubuntu.com/GetUbuntu/download

Download the ISO file from that link, and burn it to a CD or DVD. If Windows doesn't recognize the format of the file you downloaded, you will also have to download a program burn the disc, such as Nero. You can download Nero here http://www.nero.com/enu/support-downloads.html

With the disc ready, turn on your laptop and put the disc in. It should automatically boot from your CD, if you hard drive has been formatted. If not, restart the computer and press F2 at the very first screen to enter BIOS. It will look like a blue console. In BIOS, go to Boot Options. Use the + and - keys to make the CD/DVD drive boot first, by moving it to the top of the list. Save and exit (F10). Your computer will restart and boot from the CD. Press a key to boot from the CD and follow the instructions to install your operating system.

If your laptop does not have a CD/DVD drive, you will have to use a USB drive to install your operating system. It is a bit more complicated to do, but you can find instructions here: moz-screenshot.pnghttps://help.ubuntu.com/community/Installation/FromUSBStick

Hello,

The problem is with the corrupted boot files .In my opinion you have one solution
Steps for solution

1. Download an operating system called ' Linux mint ' which can be installed in the pen drive having minimum 4 gb capacity . Using this operating system you can access the computer .

2. Copy the file and folders to an external storage device (external hard disk, pen drive etc..)

3. Reinstall the operating system ( XP,Vista ,Window 7,Ubuntu etc )

Hope you be successful
