Default WMV protection pain

hi
I've been downloading video files from a website that i subscribe to.
up until yesterday i was able to download either AVI or MPEG format. I usually download, convert and burn to DVD so that i can watch the content on my home TV rather than my monitor.

the site has changed its video files to only allow you to download protected WMV files, which i didnt believe would cause any problems until i tried to convert them into MPEG.

I have a few conversion programs and none will allow me to convert my WMV files

Is this normal? is there a way around it?

would like a few tips before i cancel my membership.

thanks

Does the site state that you are making an UNRESTRICTED PURCHASE of videos, or is there a limited license involved (in which case, you are not entitled to convert it)?

have you tried using nerovision?

wmv files are the worst file types in the world

nero vision is what i usually use to convert my WMV files and have never had a problem until now.

I will have a look at the site to see if i can find any restrictions.

thanks
