I have these mp4 files which are encoded in PAL @ 25 FPS. They play fine on VLC, WMP and QuickTime, but when trying to manipulate them in any way (i.e cut, edit) with VirtualDub or Windows Movie Maker, the programs don't want anything to do with them, so to speak. WMM says it doesn't support the format or video, and VirtualDub won't open the file because the "MPEG 1 video stream contains an invalid frame rate". I'm not sure if it's because of the way the file was ripped/encoded, or because I'm missing a codec. I suppose the solution would be to convert them to NTSC format. Are there any programs that can do this? Any advice would be appreciated. Thanks!

I don't know if you've searched Google about this but converting PAL to NTSC seems to be more trouble than it's worth. It can be done but it ain't easy. The link below is for a Google search.
