You have to buy the full version of QuickTime 4.
Then you'll have under the "File" menu an "Export" item. I recomend that you choose : AVI, Cinepak, Best Quality, No key frame, No bitrate limit.
Once you've got the avi you can use TMPGEnc to encode it to MPEG-1...

Just use QuickTime Pro to go straight from QT to MPEG-1.

First convert the MOV file to a AVI, then to MPEG.

Read these links and try some of the shareware downloads...

You can get a trial version of Adobe Premier which will help.

I like a program called Cleaner for this type of work.

But does cleaner really work on a windows 2003 server?

So it is not a service? It could be run on Windows 2003, but only on the workstation part of the Operating System.

No point.  You could run it on Server 2003 even though the OS is not optimized for those types of apps.

You may want to have a look at www.videohelp.com as they are an excellent source of tools, especially for conversion and transcoding.  Lots of links to trial versions and free software, as well as tutorials.  procoder 2 and tmpgenc maybe worth a look for you?

cheers
