"I've been using Freemake Video Converter to shrink and convert DVDs/Blu-rays to mkv so I can store them on an external HDD and watch them either via the TV's USB port or through my WD TV Live player. But yesterday, every time I tried to use Freemake, it crashes after only a few minutes and closes. It doesn't matter what source video I try to transform or whether I try to transform to mkv or mp4 it crashes. Any suggestions? Much appreciated." ------Melissa
