Default Is There A Place For Downloading CC Videos For The Sims 2 Televisions
I was planning on makeing my own videos for the sims 2, I heard they need to be in .AVI video format.

If you do not know it is possible to make the tv channels different in the sims 2, change the movies and also channels like the cooking channel with your own sims cooking or making videos of you playing the game using the default recording feature in the sims 2 then putting the video files from EA Games The SIms 2, Movies and then putting the .AVI videos into the television, also possible to put in better quality videos into the sims 2 broadcast. or even replace the sims 2 video games with your own video game videos with by recording in .avi Video format only

Is it possible for the sims to have more then 5 channels I am not sure, can anyone please tell me where I can find some already done projects I'm sure there is a lot of them but the internet search is showing up nothing
I did however find this but nothing else except, only the sims resource

https://db.modthesims.info/showthre...ight=tv+station

and I don't know why just the sims resource

There are a few on here-

There were also some custom video files to drop into existing channels, can't find them now though! I know MTS stopped hosting them at one time because of huge file sizes, but I don't think that's an issue now. I have one I made for my own use, I've not uploaded it anywhere though.

This might be better in the WCIF forum?

I tried putting this in my game, it's the sims 3 TV shows for Sims 2 (they feature Sims 2 sims, for anyone who didn't play sims 3), but I couldn't personally get them to work in my game for whatever reason

@Bigsimsfan12, where did you try putting the files--maybe you put them in the wrong place? Or maybe your computer can't handle them? Or possibly you need to re-extract the files because they got corrupted somehow??

Anyway, I use those extracted TS3 tv files and they show up fine for me; I split them up so that they play among different channels. I used to have a higher def version of the original tv files, but I seem to have lost it, and for the life of me I can't find the download again. I could have sworn it was linked to here on MTS, but again, I can't find it.

Anyway, like simsample said, there are a few custom channels so it is possible to add more. That tutorial by Echo should explain how to do it.

Same pathway in the post:
Documents/EAGames/Sims2/Movies/Broadcast and then into which stations I thought they should be in.

They just show up as a black screen. Not really sure why but they've been in my game for at least a year now and I've never bothered to try and fix it
