    Convert them to quicktime using MPEG Streamclip.

    To make it simple in the future, just use Google.com! Doing a search in Google just using the name provided by r.j.s above ("MPEG Streamclip"), led to this as the first result which is the site for the developer- http://www.squared5.com/

    Good luck with it!
