    I had a Panasonic Camcorder (silly purchase!) and all the video files are either vob or mov files. I would now like to convert all these files to either avi or wmv so I can edit them in windows movie maker.
    They all play fine in windows media player.
    I did try a program called Winff which works great for flv files that i find on youtube but doesnt work converting my vob & mov files!!
    I've read quite a few threads on converting and the best thing i've come across is someone who suggested using Windows media converter which comes with vista. I did try this and it does convert but it loses the audio. Maybe i'm not setting the conversion up right - i don't know! I'm not overly competent with computers!
    Can anyone suggest an easy way to convert these files, perferably without having to buy any software???
    I have years and years of footage but no way of editing them!!!
    I also have a load of mpeg4 video files which i took with my ipod nano which i would also like to put into windows movie maker - any suggestions on that??

    Addressing VOB files to AVI.
    A movie title consists of VOB, BUP, and IFO files.
    The IFO file holds the information for the movie.
    Example, VTS_01_0.IFO would be Title 1
    VTS_02_0.IFO would be Title 2.

    Run AutoGK and select VTS_01_0.IFO.
    Select an output location.
    Set Quality, then 'Add Job'.

    Choose another Title (VTS_02_0.IFO for example) and repeat the process until all the Titles you want have been selected, then 'Start'.
