Perhaps you too have a VHS tape (or stack of them) that you want to transfer to your Windows Media Player for playing. If so, this column might help you out. It describes the steps I took to transfer the video from the VHS tape to Windows Media Player on my computer, edit the video and then burn the edited video to a DVD. I also include some time-saving tips that I discovered along the way.

Here show the supported video and audio files of Windows Media Player in a table:
