"I have edited movies using Windows Movie Maker and saved them to WMV format on my computer. I want to watch these videos on mobile devices like iPod, PSP and so on. What can I use to convert WMV to MP4?"

 

WMV (Windows Media Video) is a format developed by Microsoft for Internet streaming and watching videos on a PC. This is a type of video that can be played on your computer and portable media players. However, WMV format is still not compatible with all Apple’s products like iPod, iPad, iPhone and other portable devices. Converting the less compatible WMV to MP4 format lets you watch videos freely on your Mac computer or players.
