My Kodak digital camera (which I dearly love) records video in .mov (aka QuickTime) format. My Windows PC video editing software would prefer to use .avi format. Now what???
Lucky for me I found a FREE .mov to .avi converter that is small in size (a little over 1 MB) and works great!
It's on SourceForge here: http://mp4cam2avi.sourceforge.net/
And here's a sample clip I converted, then edited in Camtasia Studio.
