  • Converting video formats?

    Hey all,

    I have a really huge dilema. I have this presentation to give this week to about 200 recruits for the cell phone company I work for. In this presentation, there is a short 3-4 minute video about the company in Quicktime format (.mov). The only problem is that when I play the video on that computer, but it lags a lot because the computer isn't that powerfull (PIII 600 Laptop with 256 SD-RAM) I own Quicktime Pro v.6.5.1. I tried to convert the video to AVI, but it comes out really bad quality. I used the Export feature in Quicktime. Is there any other peace of software that can convert a .mov to either AVI or MPEG without sacrificing quality? I already did a search on download.com and came out empty handed. It doesn't have to be free, just reletively easy to get within 2-3 days.

    Thanks,

    Rafster

    P.S. BTW, the quicktime video is about 600MB. That should give you an idea as to the quality. If you need specifics, please ask and I will try to answer.

    You could use TMPGEnc with QT Reader plugin to convert the file to mpeg.

    The real question is why the computer can't play with out lag. IMHO a PIII 600Mhz is powerfull enough to play videos, maybe you need a better video card.

      Can you use another computer to show the presentation? If you are running Windows XP turn down the visual settings right down and run it in the classic windows theme just for when you show the presentation, also quicktime should have some settings to adjust performance wise

        I have used Rad Video Tools in the past and the video compression is pretty good. Try Bink Video and Smacker.

          Yeah, it works fine on my computer at home. They have a whole bunch of crap on this machine. It's a laptop, so I can't change the vid card.

          Thanks for the ideas, keep'em coming.

          Peace,
