Converting to Quick Time files and vice versa

  • Posted: 27 March 2009 04:11 AM

    I have downloaded a Realplayer file and a VLC file that I would like to convert to quick time. Anyone know how do I do that?

    And how do I convert quick time files to VLC and Realplayer?

    Thanks

    Free:  Tools like Mpeg Streamclip and VideoMonkey would serve you well.

    Paid:  Quicktime Pro.  Best $30 you’ll ever spend.

    If you can find a download VisualHub or even iSquint worked great. Was a front end for ffmpeg and other command line tools.

    It is pretty much abandonware now that Techspansion has shut down.

    Just know that converting Realplayer files is a pain, no matter which way you do it.

    Really wish Real would just up and *buffering*.......*buffering*......*buffering*.....

    That’s exactly why I didn’t mention Visual Hub or iSquint.  As I type this I am transcoding 10 avi files with Visual Hub.  It’s great.  However, VideoMonkey is looking to be the next Visual Hub/iSquint replacement.  Same concept anyway- simple GUI front-end on FFMpeg.

    I just downloaded ffmpeg and it worked a treat on a VLC file.
