Convert .mov video made in iPhone to ...

How can I convert .mov video made in iPhone to some other formats like .wmp etc?

I have downloaded the clip in question to a windows xp machine I am more familiar with. I have access to an Apple computer as well but I prefer XP at this point.

Thank you.

You can use a converter to do this.  There are numerous free converters out there.  I would recommend the DVD Video Soft or the Xilisoft converters.

Neilsr, The link after download, requires to purchase the download before it is activated. After the download, I had to uninstall it.

Now, I will move to the next link from EnriquePhoenix.

Thanks,

Hi EnriquePhoenix,

Your link, after the conversion (from .MOV to .WMP) has the video rotated 90 degrees counter-clickwise.

How can I make it to keep the video orientation as it is in the original video?

Thx

Hi Neilsr,

It puts a water mark in the middle of the video. I used the default options to install it; may be this is why it is asking for activation (and it installs version 6 instead of 1.2).

I did unstalled it to try it again.

Also, similar to the link from EnriquePhoenix, after conversion, the converted video is rotated 90 degrees counter-clickwise???

Hi Neilsr,

I got the right version now. But, after the conversion, it rotates the video 90 degrees. How can I correct this?

Thanks

But, when I filmed it holding the iPhone horizpntally, it came out right. If not clear at this point, you need to try it to see it.
