convert MOV video file from my digital camera to a video format compatible with Windows Movie Maker
Posted: 18 Mar 2012 03:02 PM
I took videos using my digital camera. The videos are in a MOV format.
I tried, but cannot import MOV files into Windows Movie Maker.
Please advise me as to what conversion program I can use to convert a
MOV video file to a video format compatible with Windows Movie Maker.
Thank you.

I believe I previously gave you a suggestion about Freemake Audio Converter for an .mp3 file with which you were having problems. They have a similar converter (Freemake Video Converter) for video that should be able to turn your .mov files into .wmv format.

Freemake Video Converter is at freemake.com. I would recommend only installing the program and not any add-ons it offers to install.

Well, although Movie Maker can support MOV, the highly compressed H.264 encoded .mov is not ideal for editing yet. If you're getting caught by the editing issues of MOV footage, we definitely recommend you a solution- converting H.264 MOV to WMV with Brorsoft Video Converter.
