[ Message from the author (aktee67 @ gmail.com) ]

Welcome to my tutorial! I will try my best to explain everything, making this guide easy for Newbies. If you have any problem, I prefer if you reply to this topic on videohelp.com. Since no one read the credits at the end of the movies, I suppose it is the same for tutorials. Well, credits are important! That's why I'm going to put them at the top ^ ^.

Thanks to:
-Baldrick, the webmaster of videohelp.com. He did nothing for this guide, but that guy's site helped a whole bunch of people.
-Everyone who made a guide on videohelp.com, as I learned from them.
-AonE, Dattebayo, Lunar, Kaizoku-Fansubs for making great Anime Fansubs. Without them subbing great Anime, I wouldn't be doing this guide.
-Kodaikun for telling me that FFMPEG is good, and making me make a batch tutorial for this.
