I have a WMV video and I need it in any of the following formats: MP3, MPEG, AVI, MPA, MOV, QT, SWF, to upload to a website. How can I convert to any of these?
Thanks!

If you type "convert from wmv" into Google ... it brings up 2,190,000 hits.

Let's try narrowing down his choices down from 2,190,000 links, huh?

If you're okay with command-line interfaces, try ffmpeg.

Or you can try Mediacoder. Both are free. The Mediacoder interface is pretty straightforward, and the option sets are pretty good for advanced users...for Mediacoder, bump up the volume default by 15-20 db. I used to go with PSP Video 9, which uses the ffmpeg set, but Mediacoder really makes use of dual core and more recent PCs.

It took you five days to respond to him with your 'narrow' list. My point is that he could do a great deal of self-help in five days.

You can edit it with Nero Vision (even the OEM version) and export to MPEG. I would guess you can do the same with Roxio or even Windows Movie Maker which is free.

Neither of these are good choices, Mediacoder won't input ".wmv" files, and ffmpeg needs to be compiled.

I use Pinnacle Studio 11 Ultimate edition

It will output most of those file formats and input your wmv.

It will allow you to set the output file size for streaming as well.

just my 2cw

Cheers

Look for "Super" at erightsoft.com, a freeware application that describes itself as "A GUI to ffmpeg, MEncoder, mplayer, x264, mppenc, ffmpeg2theora & the theora/vorbis RealProducer plugIn."

It works well; you can be converting media files in a few minutes.
