    I've got the flip4Mac that allows WMV files to play in Quicktime, but it doesn't work too well, so I was wondering if there's something free that I can use to convert a WMV file to AVI, or MPEG, or anything that works normally with Quicktime. Anyone got any suggestions?

    Spinnerlys, I tried that feature, but it always gives me an error of "VLC Could not open the encoder." Does this mean that I need to install an encoder plug-in in order to use this feature?

    I don't really know. I have Perian and Flip4Mac installed and VLC opens WMVs without a hitch. But I also haven't tried the STREAM function, so I can't comment on that. Maybe it is a licensing issue.
    Maybe you should invest some money in either the Pro or Studio version of Flip4Mac.

    Or try to get the files in another format.
