Alternatives to Handbrake for Transcoding

I downloaded handbrake and after about an hour of attempting to open titles, folders and files, , I accomplished nothing.
What else can I use to transcode a file from WMV to MP4?

I've never had problems with Handbrake, but if you do, try Freemake Video Converter, also free, also easy to use.

You can also look at DVD Flick:

WMV (aka ASF) is listed.

I found it to be fairly easy to use. I was getting about five 1 hour videos on a dvd, so I could jump to the "hour" I wanted.

windows moviemaker drop your video on then go to file save /for high definition display, then give it a name
Save-movie-forYTD pro conversion tab
YTD pro conversion tabdrag and drop your WMV on and choose output container then the quality
WMV to MP4 YTD ProVLC  it's easier to show you a how to Link.

Thank you brothertruffle880
Thank you coral47 I'll test run this freemake. Maybe it's similar to S.U.P.E.R which I really enjoy even today.
With any freeware using good practise I'll download it first and test it
This one is has adaware to be expected
Please be aware when you install freemake choose custom
The first one> it includes search protect and wants to make this your home page.
after unticking this it said leaving all boxes unchecked,
search protectIt's followed by SpeedUpMyPC 2014>> uncheck> I accept the terms of  SpeedUpMyPC
2 speedUpMyPC 2014Choose Custom install again and do not install browser add-on to chrome and firefox.
Add ons are spyware as well. Our browsers collect data of our activity.
Then finally we can proceed,
I'll test it out converting a flash to mp4.
Works good.
Doesn't use a lot of system resources. has some extra tools combined like DVD shrink.
Open a file video then set the out quality same as the original and select the format mp4
When it's done converting the final page displays and there is a small green play button which when selected will play back the converted video in your default player.
cheers
