'[OT] Quicktime to windows video format converter'

I'm looking for a simple software utility that can take an Apple QuickTime
.MOV format file and convert it to something that can be edited with Windows
MovieMaker such as a .WMF format.  It needs to be free.

My daughter has been given a school assignment to make a video journal of a
volunteer activity to make the world a better place.  She has taken on
raising some money for our local children's hospital.  Unfortunately, this
has become a bit of a parent technology project were the parent (me) gets to
scrape enough technological bits together so that they can accomplish their
video part of the goal.  She borrowed a neighbour's old Video 8 camera
hoping to use that.  After finding what type of film was required and buying
a couple cassettes we found that the batteries only last about 30 sec now
before going flat - old batteries.  We also don't have a video capture card
either so transferring and editing on the computer wasn't on.  Next she
borrowed a friends still camera that can also take movies.  We can transfer
files to the computer - great! - but then I realized that I couldn't view
them because they were in QuickTime and Windows MovieMaker can't import
them.  I ended up downloading the Apple QuickTime player so I can now see
them but need something to be able to convert them to a format that
MovieMaker can use.

There seems to be quite a few packages $ that will do conversion, editing,
etc., but I plan on using MovieMaker for the editing.  I'm not very keen on
spending money on something that will be used on a school project and then
tossed away in a week or so.

Got any ideas?

Thanks,

Gordon Williams

VLC should be able to do it, at least convert from MOV to AVI.

Cheers,

The answer is to relocate your daughter to another family for the
duration, a secondment so to speak. Not your problem then! :)

Think of the money saved.

If windows is your only OS: Windows Media Encoder. Can take basically
any video that plays on your system and converts it to .wmv. Also does
audio. A ton of encoding options.

Another good program is Format Factory. It supports a wide variety if
different format conversions.
