    convert mov files
    i recorded some videos of my son with cycorder on my iphone and transfered them to my mac. i can play them with vlc player just fine. however, his mom (and her family) have pc's and if i email them the videos they can't play them. what is the best way i can convert them to a windows media player format so they can view them? i wish i could tell them all to go get vlc, but they won't know what i'm talking about.

    They should be able to install Quicktime on the PC and play the MOV files. But if that isn't something they want to do, you should be able to use VideoMonkey to convert the MOV file to WMV.

    Anyone know why only the Apple Devices options are available? Flash, wmv and all the others are dimmed.

    That's strange..VideoMonkey uses ffmpeg to do the conversion and ffmpeg supports a whole array of formats..I'm at work, so can't play with the options..

    Installing QuickTime on a PC shouldn't be simple. However, if your .mov uses a certain codec not available in the default player, then you may run into problems (even for a Mac user).
