Hello-

I've searched the forum here and the net and have been unable to find a solution for converting .m4v files to Windows Media .wmv files. The issue is that I'm creating audio slide shows in iMovie that I'd like to share with colleagues using Windows. If they don't have Quicktime (downloading it isn't always an option as they're on corporate systems) then they can't view the movies.

Does anyone have a recommendation as to how I can either create them in .wmv format or convert them? Any help is greatly appreciated!

Thank you!

Losh

If you are giving a copy of your movie on DVD/CD, just include a copy of windows quicktime

use an app like FFmpegX to convert it to flash FLV format if you want a good universal web format

Download and install Perian - The swiss-army knife of QuickTime® components and Windows Media Components for QuickTime - by Flip4Mac and you should be good to go.
