.MOV -> .MPEG conversion program...

I need a decent program to convert a music video from MOV to MPEG, or any file format really (WMV, AVI). Any recommendations? Freeware would be preferable.

Apple's Quictime "Pro"

In reply to: .MOV -> .MPEG conversion program...

Not free, but for $30 it's very powerful. Allows conversion of videos to iPods, audio extraction and format conversions.

Unfortunately...

In reply to: google: mov. to mpeg. John

this yields dozens of results, not all of which work or have up to date compatibility. Wondering if anyone has any experience with anything...

I actually have quicktime-pro... forgot about it entirely! it may work for an avi but it has no mpeg/wmv format.

Also, try MPEG Streamclip

In reply to: Unfortunately...

MPEG Streamclip requires QT Pro to work, but the program itself is free. It's a marvelous program that converts many file formats. I primarily use it to extract audio from my digital still camera's mpeg movies for iMovie editing, but I know it converts and handles many different mpeg, mov, avi, wmv formats too.

What I use is VLCPLAYER.

This is not an offer to teach how to use it but just to note that it does work for me.

Same Problem

In reply to: .MOV -> .MPEG conversion program...

I also need a program to convert the 1080p trailers from Apple into a 360/media center friendly format for streaming.
