Converting .mov files.

I've got a few large .mov files of MG shooting.
They are only 15 seconds but 4.3MB.

I think they can be converted to MPG, correct?
Will the MPG files be smaller than 4.3MB?

I have Quicktime Pro, but it's not my choice for converting .mov files to other formats.

I use a program called tmpgenc. It's primarily intended as a mpg editing app, but it can also convert from other formats into mpg. To convert .mov to mpg, in addition to installing the app itself, you also have to find a file called QTreader.zip, which is a quicktime plugin. Unzip the plugin into the tmpgenc directory. It makes excellent conversions to .mpg format. It can do mpeg1 and mpeg2. Use the mpeg2 for very high quality, the mpeg1 for the usual stuff. If you never register it, it stops letting you do the mpeg2 after a while.

The mpg files are larger than the corresponding .mov's, but I prefer the mpg format so I don't really care about that.

Good luck.

ps - the app is easy to find, but if you can't find the plugin (it's probably on their site, can't remember), pm me with your email.

Thanks Grabbrass, that's what I needed to know.

"The mpg files are larger than the corresponding .mov's"

The reason for wanting to convert them is to have a smaller file to e-mail than 4.3MB.

Back to the drawing board.
