Hello, I have a .mov that I need to have working through powerpoint on a windows machine. If i buy quicktime pro, can quicktime convert to .avi? if not, are there other free programs? thanks, r. when i try to use a free importer called "MOV to AVI MPEG WMV Converter", it does the translation, but when i try to open it in windows media player i get an error that reads, "Windows media plaer cannot play the file, the file may be formatted with an unsupported codec. or the internet security setting on your computer is set too high. lower your browsers security setting, and then try again." ---? i am in an office environment and behind a firewall, is this the problem? how to i get a .mov to work in windows/powerpoint? thanks, r.
