.ram and .wmv files
can anybody recommend a good macintosh utility for converting .ram and
.wmv files to .mov files for playback in jitter (preferably a
free/opensource one). i found flip4mac (http://www.flip4mac.com/), but
exporting is a "pro" feature. searching on google is turning up a
frustratingly large number of advertisements.
any tips would be greatly appreciated,
it depends greatly on the codec used within the WMV files (since its
a container format, like quicktime).
Id suggest looking at FFMPEGX , which is an open source front end to
the ffmpeg en/de/trans-coder system. It can work miracles, but can be
a pain in the ass.
Also, flip4mac 2.02 works really well, and the pro export component
works as advertised, right from QT (and jitter too, if you want to go
that route.. its pretty pain-free ).
You might also try checking out the DIVX Fusion codec for mac (now
Beta 2 I believe), which will let one decode any mpeg4/divx/xvid 3vix
files, many of which are in wmv container formats. that might be
worth a shot if your footage is DIVX wmv flavor.

MPEG Streamclip can open & convert .wmv’s and it’s
free. It can aslo demux & convert mpeg files, which
makes it a must-have video utility imho.
