Where does one find this program? I have some documentaries in WMV format and the producer encourages people to make copies and hand out. Will this work?

You can search it from google.
In addition, it is a convert tool, if you want to copy something with it I am sorry that is not the appropriate one, but you can try another product: ImTOO DVD Creator to do this.
