My new Panasonic digital camera records in .mov. For more easy and universal distribution and viewing, I would like to convert the .mov files to avi or wmv. I have Mac Quicktime player 7, and it converts, but at a significant reduction in quality. Perhaps a solution is to change the conversion setting, but I do not know about that. I have briefly read about a free program RAD. And there are probably others. I am a teacher, recording videos for class on a Panasonic in .mov mode. However, for best viewership by students, I need the video in AVI or WMV format. Would a free downloadable converter be better than Quicktime 7? If so, which one? It would seem there is a system in place to do this, but I do not know what it is. Help-uh.
