    or buy VisualHub -- alternatively, you can use iSquint to convert it to .mp4 (ipod/itunes), and try that.

    iSquint is free

    Flip4Mac will let you use WMV directly without transcoding, however you need at least the Player Pro version for editing. It's pretty cheap to buy though.

    Video converter

    Does this mean that video converter will not do the job?

    Which video converter? VisualHub/iSquint will work, but there will be an extra step required and you will lose a bit of quality.
