I took some video with my digital camera and it saves them to MOV format. Id like to email them and I would like to convert them to WMV format. Is there any decent and or free software that can do this? I looked around in my wmv player and didnt see any instructions to do so. Thanks.

windows movie maker should do it if you have a mov codec on your machine. open up windows movie maker, click file then import, select the file. take the file that appears and drag it onto the timeline at the bottom. cut out anything you dont want, then click file save as and then you can select a file size that fits what you need

Diat I tried what you said but it didnt work. I got an error message saying that WMM couldnt import the file and that mov format wasnt supported. Guess I dont have that codec that you are speaking of.

No but I found a freeware program that converted them to avi files, and that got the job done. Thanks for your help Diat.
