    Convert wmv to mov
    I am new to Mac, and definitely not computer savvy when it comes to formatting and such.

    I have a wmv file (video and audio) that I'm trying to convert to mov with a program called ffmpegx, but I have no idea how to. I dragged the file to the converter and it identifies it as a asf file (??). From the Quick Preset menu, I choose MOV, and then I click on 'Encode'. A window opens up saying it's finished, but when I click on the blue circle with an i, it says:

    FFmpeg version CVS, Copyright (c) 2000-2004 Fabrice Bellard
    Mac OSX universal build for ffmpegX
    libavutil version: 49.0.0
    libavcodec version: 51.9.0
    libavformat version: 50.4.0

    Seems that stream 1 comes from film source: 1000.00 (1000/1) -> 29.97 (30000/1001)
    Input #0, asf, from '/Users/owner1/Desktop/Arlene's 28 v2.wmv':
    Duration: 00:35:51.6, start: 3.000000, bitrate: 3091 kb/s
    Stream #0.0: Audio: wmav2, 44100 Hz, stereo, 320 kb/s
    Stream #0.1, 29.97 fps(r): Video: WMV3 / 0x33564D57, 720x480
    Incorrect frame rate

    So the only thing I understand is it says the frame rate is incorrect, but I have no idea what that is. I went to the Video section, and saw it says Framerate, so I tried choosing all options (Unspecified, NTSC Film, NTSC and PAL) but nothing works.
