I'm looking for a simple to use freeware programme that will convert .mov video files to .mpg or .wmv.

Has anyone used either of these two programmes listed by fozzie? I would be interested in what you think.

Ok...I tried out both of these and didn't think much of either.

MOV Converter puts a huge ugly watermark text over your video unless you buy the full version.

Apex Video Converter doesn't convert to .mpg or .wmv unless you buy the full version.

Does anybody have any other suggestion?

I found an application called Any Video Converter which seems to do the trick for me.

This is an old topic.

However, I have used Any Video Converter, for a long time, with good results:

http://www.any-video-converter.com/products/for_video_free/

Input formats:

avi, asf, mov, rm, rmvb, flv, mkv, mpg, 3gp, m4v, vob, YouTube videos

Output formats:

avi, mp4, wmv, swf, flv, mkv, MPEG-1 and MPEG-2, mpg (PAL or NTSC),
audio - mp3, wma, ogg, aac, wave, m4a

I also have Super; good, but a bit flaky with .flv files.

Recently, I convert a MOV file to mpg with the recommended video converters, but it produced output file with grey background. No video-the audio is fine though. I'm a green hand ,so is there a good converter can finish it for me ?
