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,
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.
