    Anyone know of any free software to convert a MOV file to WMV?

    Anyone know of any free software to convert a MOV file to WMV?

    I'd like to share some video with you all, but the format is in MOV & the file size is to large for a Zippy Video upload.

    I'm also trying to condense the file size.

    Well the largest file I have is 26M in MOV format & in order to upload it here it needs to be under 18M in WMV format to upload onto PP.O.

    My other option would be a video hosting site that accepts files that large that I can link to.

    Zippy Videos doesn't fly.

    Go to download.com and do a search for "Convert MOV WMV".
    Filter is down by checking the license box to "Free".

    Sure, you may have to wade through some crap, but eventually you will find what you are looking for.
    Also check to see how many times program has been downloaded and read the reviews.
    I love that site.
    It's like searching here, you need the right wordage and filters applied.

    Here is what I came up with:

    http://www.download.com/3120-20_4-0.html?tag=fil&qt=convert+mov+wmv&sort=&operatingS ystems=&licenseType=49&fileSize=&ca=

    The condensing is a matter of quality.
    Edit the quality.

    WMV is really a Windows deal...so Windows Media Encoder should be able to handle it I believe.
    Microsoft Media Site or Downloads.

    I am pretty sure mov is a supported source file.

    Use Photobucket.
    You can go a lot higher than zippy crapola, you can go 100MB's at Photobucket.

    There, problem solved.
    You can even put the IMG link here when done, just like youtube.

    My video editing software will export as either.
    To do what you want there, I would import the movie, then export as the desired format.

    I'm going to give PhotoBucket a shot. I'd rather host it there & link to it than use up Webby's space.
