Converting MOV. Files

Recommended Posts

My Nikon camera produces MOV. video files by default. I'm trying to upload one to Photobucket now, it's only 5 minutes long but the file size is about 450Mb, the upload's going to take forever.

 

Previously I've tried converting the video files to other formats with some success but all of the free converters I've used leave a watermark. Is there anything out there that I can use to either compress the MOV. files or convert them with no watermark?

 

Thank you

You could drag it into windows movie maker, put it on the timeline and then make a new movie out of it in wmv format. Should give you some options for file size.

I'll try both thanks guys.

 

The upload failed to complete after 3 hours but enough of it got to Photobucket for me to post something. What sort of computers and internet connection do regular video up-loaders have? I'm feeling seriously out gunned.

20 meg down, a lot less up. Getting the video into a more compact format helps a lot.

Typical Lotus Driver. It's that lever with the wee button on the end ;)

The problem isn't what people don't know, it's what they know that just ain't so.

As a Lotus driver, I'm used to finding things are a bit half-assed!

LOL. As an ex-Delta driver I know exactly what you mean.

Windows Movie Maker doesn't recognise MOV. files so I'll try handbrake.
