I am a student. I make movies with iMovie. I want to have my movies go into a format that window media player can read. Is there any free converter that lets you convert your movies to .wmv??

Sorry, I assumed you were talking about WMP for Windows. Flip4Mac Studio (US$49) claims to e able to export to WMV9. However, Windows Media Player for Mac isn't supported by Microsoft anymore. They've replaced it with the free component of Flip4Mac. Can I ask why you want movies to be playing in this old app? :)

Quiktime Pro

I am not so sure for I have only heard roomers that Quicktime PRO has the ability the convert files but this requires you to buy it.
It would probably be better when you would search a frace such as "convert to .wma" within http://www.softpedia.com/mac . Who knows maybe there is a free third party program out there.

The paid version of Flip4Mac is required for QuickTime Pro to convert video to WMV format.

Just regular Quicktime should be able to play MPEG4 as should Windows Media Player. No need for Flip4Mac, unless I'm not understanding correctly. :eek:

Today i went to school.
I had my movie in 4 formats.
I have a mac, my teacher has a windows.
the only format that my teacher's windows media player could read was .avi out of .mov .mp4 (MPEG-4)

Flip4Mac allows me to export in .wmv (but it is a max of 30 sec.)
{i have QuickTime™ Version 7.1.3, Player Version 7.1.3}

I want an app that lets me export my video in .wmv and choose how much space it will take up (like windows movie maker does)

I have iMovie HD 5

I wnat to convert from mov to wmv so my teacher's windows can read my video

So Flip4Mac can't export WMVs itself, it needs QuickTime Pro? That sucks.
