I have some movies that are in TGQ format.

Any ideas on how to convert them to other types like .mov or .avi?

Try a screen capture program like the one below to capture the video. The results of capturing will depend on the power of your system. You may have to lower the movie to 320 x 240 to get a good capture. Also, lowering hardware accelleration will also help (look in advanced in the desktop resolution settings)

Then capture the audio with a software like this one:

When using the stepvoice recorder. My record volume needs to be set on stereo. If you're unfamiliar where this setting is found, look in control panel > sounds > audio > record volume > check stereo (If stereo isn't showing, goto options > properties and check stereo to make it appear)

You can then mix them together with this program:

For that purpose Camtasia would be better.

I was hoping for a converter, however, thanks.

There is no converter. That is why I gave that suggestion.

I gave you the points because I should close the question, and your suggestion was a perfectly valid solution, though not the one I was looking forward too.
