I miss Vidget

I read somewhere that Vidget doesn't work in WinXP so I didn't bother reinstalling it. If it does work, that's great, I'll install it. If it doesn't work in WinXP what are the chances of getting it to work?

Will it work in 'compatability mode' [ya, i know, most things that won't work won't work, but its worth a shot, right?]

I think the problem was hooking it into the RMB menu.

If that really is the _only_ problem, I'd love to see a new version that just sits on the desktop as a drag'n'drop target.

And yes, I miss vidget too ... *sigh*

Cheers,

If they are not going to update it maybe we should push for them to release it opensource so that we the users can update it to work with Win XP and beyond.

Vidget was just another Newtek product that was going to revolutionize the industry and.. well, doesn't.

But it does. It completely revolutionized the industry of encoding under W2K ... only ;)

So to never let this topic die, I am reviving it and asking what are the chances of getting vidget that works on XP? Cmon, we know you can do it.

If I remember correctly, Vidget works on 2000, right? Maybe if you install it on a 2000 machine and then copy the needed registry entries (moving them to their new homes on XP [some of them changed]) it will work?

Vidget was a really cool little tool for encoding video. For example, you could right click on an avi and tell it to encode to a mov. It was a really simple and useful tool, and I too wish it could still be used :(

Vidget was one of many abandoned ideas by Newtek. Get used to it... the rest of the industry has. :cursin:

Maybe with speededit out, they will have more use for a video converter.

I'd expect time instead to be put into expanding the formats SpeedEdit reads, so that files don't need to be converted in the first place.
