I hear comcast will start encrypting clearqam in our area which means all our stuff may be encrypted. can mcebuddy handle that when converting from wtv?

You'll need a TV Tuner that is CableCard compatible, such as Silicondust's HDHomeRun Prime to be able to decrypt the channels. You will need to rent a CableCard from Comcast.

Hi there;
so

1. I have an HD Home Run Prime
2. I have a cable card (coming)
In this case I wasn't sure if the WTV/Media Center videos would be able to be converted via mcebuddy after

can they?

Yup, without a problem. The "encrypting" means that you need a cable card. Has no effect on what MCEbuddy can do. You only need to worry if Comcast starts flagging content as "copy once." Then MCEBuddy (IIRC) cannot do anything.

I have Comcast and HDHomerun and ran MCEBuddy without a problem.
