hi, WinAVI Video Converter can convert a quicktime movie file to mpeg or wmv. However, you have to spend $29.95 for a full version. reply

Why would you want to convert QuickTime mov to Windows Media Player??

WMV is a horrible format. Not to mention the quality sucks for WMV files. Best keep it as a QuickTime .mov file.

QuickTime is generally the best format for video and I have never encountered a situation where WMV is a better format. reply

Well, you should really post more information about your request in the first instance, it simply makes topics larger than they should be and harder for onther people with the same problem as yours to fix.

If you are using Mac OS X, then you should try

Very flexible program. And it’s free! reply

I’m wondering about this too. I make juggling videos using iMovie and can only export as .mov

While this is fine for people using a mac. Other people who download the videos can’t watch them on their PC unless they download quicktime and most people can’t be arsed downloading an entire program simply to watch my video. A better solution would be to make them .mpg so that they can be viewed in quicktime OR windows media player (or any other media program you can think of) reply

I’m sorry, but in every experience with Quicktime, I really think it is a horrible player and it should be banned from the world. As much as all of you MAC people hate Microsoft, Windows, and the player they make...it is ultimately better. reply

I don’t like Quicktime player either for many reasons. Also I cannot work with the .mov extensions when working with my video program.
But using the free RADTool you can convert from .mov to .avi
I believe there’s a slight degree in quality but it’s acceptible. reply

I too dislike quicktime and find putting down wmv as bad quality is what alot could say about quicktime. But one thing is for sure, my DVD player does not play .mov so converting it to mpg is the reason why i am looking. reply

Why is it every forum on the planet always descends to Mac vs Windows?! ;)
I make videos for a living and love the flexibility of QT. Nobody, in my experience, in the industry ever uses WMV except when sending files to office monkeys to check stuff on their PCs. WMV is great for just that – cheap and cheerful desktop stuff. However, MPEGs are the daddy and ultimately we always export our QT files to MPEG for broadcast. We would never entertain the idea of using WMV for broadcast as the quality is just so low. WMVs are great for what they were designed for; low quality files which are fast to up/download from the net. Just chill out and use what you’re happy with.
The original question was about a free converter. I just searched on Google for “free quicktime to wmv converter for PDA” and got 84,400 results! That could be a good place to start looking. Good luck!

You can use tmpgenc to convert Quicktime to vcd (mpg) format. You will need to also get the qt plugin to allow it to read the quicktime files.

i also need to convert it to use Windows Movie Maker, hey MarcJacobs...do you know if your teacher did it w/out downloading anything? i am trying to avoid downloading something reply

You will need to download an app to convert. Quicktime’s format is proprietary, which is why Windows Media Player/Movie Maker can’t play it... So you need a 3rd party product like the ones mentioned in this string... reply
