    The Moon Books Project is breaking new ground, setting new trends and going where no DS website has gone before.

    Tired of downloading all the same films to watch on your Nintendo DS? Wish you could convert your own videos, or even download something converted by one of your peers? Well now you can!

    Using our state of the art video conversion process, you too can now whip up your own DS format videos from the comfort of your web browser, and share them with your friend via The Moon Books Project.

    And yes, we did say from your web browser, no messy software to download. No ritual sacrifices to get it working.

    ...huh? Is this even new? >_> Plus, it looks a little bit like an advertisement.

    I don't think this is a good idea. I (and many others at least) have incredibly slow upload speeds. I don't want to have to upload a 400 MB file (at least, if not more), hope your server can handle this (remember vixy.net, remember how it was always busy? that was useless, and those were just 10 minute max Youtube videos, you're talking feature length films), then download a 200 MB file, too much work when I could just download BatchDPG and convert it all on my own PC.

    IMO, a better idea would be a Moonbooks branded DPG converter for use on the PC, still simple, but much more functional.

    What's the point? Just use BatchDPG. It is most likely faster.

    That has to be some type of automated advertisement. At least, that's what it sounds like.

    On the right sidebar, or under the other menu. You must be logged in to use it. The files are not hosted on Moon Books, they are hosted on various services like rapidshare. Also, it's not meant for feature films, I do all the converting of those so I can make sure they are not copyrighted work.

    bobslack, this is not as useful or great as you think it is.

    I personally can't see too much use for this. I mean, online conversion is fine for savefiles; they're small and probably easier to convert online instead of filling up your drive with software. But online conversion for video-sized files? That's just ridiculous! Erm.. no offense [​IMG]

    Yeah... I can't ever see how it's possible for me to upload a dvd sized file uploaded to there at 17.6 KBs >.> Perhaps a pdf to jpg converted would be better for people wanting to read pdfs on their dses?

    I used it to convert a .dpg I had encoded years ago into a divx avi, and it actually doesn't look too bad

    The thing isn't even online.

    If you go to Other, then Video To DPG Converter you will see-

    Apparently you have to be logged into the Moonbooks site to see it.

    Sounds stupid, but if I click Nintendo DS preset, then it outputs as MPEG-4, and if I select DPG, it deselects the NDS preset...
