I sincerely hope I can get some help here.
I am using MPEG_Streamclip to encode MPEG-4 snippets of film, for inclusion into a Powerpoint lecture. I finally figured out how to use it on either the original DVD or on the VOB files saved with DVD Decrypter (either way works to create an MP4 file). But I do not see how to then get it to work in Powerpoint. (I may have a quicktime problem that prevents the files from playing in powerpoint)
However, Powerpoint seems to like (and play) WMA files, but I have not found a reliable way to convert my MP4 to WMA files, and it does not seem possible to encode WMA using MPEG Streamclip. I have tried ImTOO and others but none of them either work well enough (ie too fast of speeds for clip, or audio only), or perhaps the freeware versions don’t give me the capabilities I want.
So - my question:
- Can I create WMA or MP1 files that will work using MPEG Streamclip?
- Is there a reliable and comprehensive program that works for converting video files from one format to another - I am willing to buy something if it actually works.
Thanks for any help.
