“I have a lot of wmv files that I would like to convert to MOV files so that I can import to imovie. I have downloaded Flip4Mac (free Version), I have downloaded MPEG Streamclip but still can’t get it to convert. MPEG Streamclip seems to convert just the audio from the conversion. I would like to do this conversion with freeware but if I can’t then I will buy what I need but I would like to know it will work before I have to buy it. I am still a novice with Mac computers but a step by step instruction would really help me.”
