One option is to Open Ms-DOS prompt (in windows) or go into DOS if not running windows.
Go into the quake directory - it should look like this or someht8ing close to it:

<C:\QUAKE\

type in "rename", then type in the name of the file you want to change, for example ill type in quake.dem then the name of the file you want to change it to.

<C:\QUAKE\rename quake.dem quake.avi

and hit enter.

<C:\QUAKE\

then type exit if a windows user or open an AVI however you usually do if a DOS user.

if this doesn't work (which i dont see why it won't) this deserves at least some points.
