OK so perhaps this question has been asked before, maybe many times before. If it has, my search of these forums yeilded little to no results. Nevertehless here it is: I have some music videos that were aquired through legal means and they are in an m2v file format. There is a certain program I want to use to view these music videos but this program does not support the m2v file format. How can I convert these files to the avi file format? I've read a couple of things like how m2v is an mpeg-2 video only file. But I can assure you that I have both video & audio during playback of said m2v files. I also read that you can change the extension (from m2v to mpeg or mpg and that should work. I've even read that all I need is the right codec for playback - if so which one? Can anybody set me straight on this issue...thanks a bunch!
