    this will convert wmv to mp4... some of the files that i download like movie previews and stuff dont convert though, it finish in less than a second... with a file that doesnt work.. but this converter seems to work to convert short segmants.. i tried to convert a 2 15 min movie with it and the audio lagged.. but then i recorded a 24 min ep of family guy and it worked fine...

    Try Flip4Mac I have this but have not had the time to sit down and figure it out. It takes Windows Media files and converts them to quicktime format. Try it and let me know how it goes:D

    how big is the file??? i think it might be a problem with your coputer then or the files that you are tryin to convert.. when i convert movies it will get to 100% after 15 minutes or so.. but then it runs for anoth 1 or so... the meter measure thing doesnt work the best sometimes.. but as long as you see that the file is getting bigger... it works... if you go into setup and the third tab you can enter the time of the movie you are converting and it will give you a size estimate so then you can use that to estimate how much longer you have becuase it tells you the current size of thef ile as it converts... if that isnt the case dont kno what to do.. sorry

    i dont think its a problem with the computer, i think its the files themselves....the are large around 300 mb...they are downloaded movies (XXX)...and i think they are protected some how....

    I use Super which seems to work well for converting to mp4.

    can the wmv videos be played normally?if no,it`s the videos promble.if yes,maybe the converter promble.do you try to change another converter to convert wmv to mp4?
