Convert Windows Media Center WTV Format Into AVI, MP4, WMV, And FLV

If you’ve been using Windows Media Center to record live TV shows and dramas, you must have noticed that it doesn’t support saving a recorded TV show in any popular media formats such as, MPG/AVI. So, it leaves users with no other option than to stick by with WTV format which is WMC native format for recorded programs. We have written about converting WTV format before but the command line tool was limited. MC-TVConverter is developed to address this very problem by allowing user to convert WTV recorded media files into WMV, MPG, AVI, FLV, DEMUX, and MP4 formats. Moreover, it has an ability to keep user-defined folder under consistent observation, looking for WTV files to convert them without requiring user’s input.

It supports simple drag & drop behavior to populate the list. You can also click Select Files button to browser through different locations to add files into the list. Beneath it, a folder can be specified where you save all the recorded TV shows files. Big play button refers to turning-on the folder watching feature.


Once you’ve put all the files in the list, select the target format from the drop-down menu to begin the conversion process. Along with WTV format, you can also convert DVR-MS and MPG media files into supported formats.

By default, it saves the converted files in original file directory, however, from settings you can choose a permanent output location. All other application’s aspects including File renaming, Preferred language, Subtitle file saving, Context menu integration etc., can be controlled from main configuration window.
