    Trying to convert video files


    Hi Guys

    I have w8, and I have a folder for grandchild videos, and they have been taken with iPad, mobile phone, and camera.

    The folder now has AVI-DSCN (camera) and IMG.

    Can they be converted to 1 file type, and will they work in WMP and/or VLC

    I have Hoo Tech's video converter program, WinX [?Diagiarty?], Cyberlink This & That, which work great for many formats. There are numerous other choices, free and fee. I don't know if only one conversion program is enough.

At a glance, it looks like there is no way to load local files into the libraries of the Music or Video apps, and that they are only for Microsoft store content. Does this seem to be the case to everyone else? If not... These apps seem to be pretty useless to someone, like me, who has a large...
