I'm looking for a program to convert avi files to mpeg. The videos are very choppy when tr ying to view on the computer. I want to convert, and then burn them, so I can watch them.

Versiontracker turned up alot of software that can do it, but I'm broke right now. I need a free solution.

You will be wanting to convert them to mpeg1 if you are playing them on a 300mhz G3 as in you sig. The only free mpeg1 converter i know off is Movie2mpg the software give the link http://www.win.ne.jp/~juan/ but its not working right now. If you want the file on cd you could use toast and burn them as VCD, VCDs are mpg1.

I don't get why you want to convert the .avi files. If you install the DivX and 3ivx QuickTime codecs, you can play them in any QuickTime-compatible application as is.
