I’m currently developing a freeware tool
to convert and join .mov or .mp4 to .avi
It works with mpeg4 and mjpeg video content and does’n re-encode video (direct stream copy conversion).
You can download it here:

Hi Everyone. I just read all your posts and sure 'nuff, I am having the exact same problem. I have been trying to convert .mov files now for the past 4 days and have read on many different Message Boards and Forums that Rad Tools is the way to go. OK - so here’s my dilemma. I have downloaded Rad Tools (Bink-Smacker) but I can’t run it. Everytime I try to run it, it brings me right back to the installation mode. What am I doing wrong???
CAN SOMEONE HELP ME???? It’s been 5 days now and I’m at my wit’s end. I am trying to convert .mov files to .avi files (or files that anyone can play) but this is turning out to be a nightmare. I tried using Rad Tools and although that works great, is easy to use and converts the file correctly, it is still too large to email. Any suggestions would be appreciated.
This post if for DAVEMAZM.
DAVEMAZM - You are an ABSOLUTE GENIUS !!!
For all those people reading these posts, especially my posts, you’ll see that I was going absolutely mad trying to email my video clips. I went to various different Message Boards, downloaded 3-4 different software packages, wrote emails to Technical Support gurus (but never received a response)and tried just about everything, include RadTools. I contacted DAVEMAZM directly and asked him about his resolution to this problem (using River Past Video Cleaner) and he sent me the instructions and answered all my question. I have to say - THIS REALLY WORKS!! After numerous attempts, I was finally able to email video clips using RiverPast. I tried converting my mov files to avi files originally and although avi compresses the files to a nice, emailable size, it would only transmit the audio - not the video. Using RiverPast I converted my files to wmv and both video and audio was transmitted. Thank You Very Much. For all of you out there that are having problems converting your video clips or emailing your video clips, stop pulling your hair out and FOLLOW the instructions given by DAVEMAZM. He is very helpful and he really knows what he’s talking about. DAVEMAZM, I now owe you my first born. I hope you like children with 4 legs and a tail. ha ha.
I have another problem. I try to convert the .avi file to .mov file and play the movie in the camera. So I can watch it on the train.
But I found that the Kodak camera can not recognize the file type. Why? How can I solve the problem?
Thank you very much!

I take it that “Normal media player” means Windows media?
Try these www.winavi.com www.eo-video.com
Another nice one is Windows Media Encoder (free) www.microsoft.com/windows/ windowsmedia/9series/encoder/default.aspx
Hey, I’m another one who found this forum by Google!
I have no camera, but I’ve got a problem with Quicktime too. I found some videos in Internet, but I can’t download them - and it’s always a .mov file. Dot-mov files can’t be shared or it’s site’s policy?
And, if anybody knows how to download Quicktime videos directly from servers, please e-mail me.
Thanks a lot, wired people.
I may be the biggest idiot but I have been trying to convert files from my camera (a Kokak EasyShare DX7440) from .mov to .mpeg. I have tried EVERYTHING and nothing seems to work. I’ve tried several types of freeware and they didn’t work. Radtools came the closest to working but I keep getting an error message. I even got that Quicktime Pro thing that everyone says is so easy to use...but I can’t figure out how to work it. Any ideas?
