    Help?

    Those downloadable trailers on Apple's website, I wanna be able to convert them to a different format so my external media box can play em. It doesn't recognize .MOV. Anyone know any good software for this?

    Cheers.

    Already have SUPER. Didn't think it would be able to handle HD. Will give it a shot now.

    No sir, does not work. I think something about the MOV files makes it go haywire, since it converted 1, but not the other 3 I tried.

    These are just Apple HD trailers btw.

    This is an odd software. I'm supposed to add files to the library first or something? Looks like a media player of sorts.. :\

    Sorry, this software hasn't been able to do anything for me :\

    SUPER worked once, now it just says illegal operation everytime I try to convert a video. Mind you, the one time it DID convert, I ended up going from a source MOV file that was 170MB to a resultant WMV9 file that was 10MB. Something was horribly wrong there..

    Any other advice?
