    Can I please get some help with "Mpeg streamclip"?

    I would like to convert a .mp4 file to a .mov format without losing any quality. I tried exporting to quicktime and increasing the "quality" slider to 100%, but that drastically increased my file size!

    The original file size was 1.42 GB and the new file was over 22 GB!

    Can someone please help?

    MPEG Streamclip is a little finicky for my taste -- and dated. Have you tried Handbrake/VLC? Free. Easier to understand controls, faster, and designed such that the default setting yield good results. That said, after selecting Export to Quicktime, what compression option is selected? H.264 would be a good bet.
