    Does anyone know of any free software that can convert video files (avi, mp4, etc.) to .wmv? I got a Philips MP3/MP4 player and it supports wmv. It came with a converter but it's for Windows. I need a converter for Mac.

    Any ideas?

    Hmm...try Visual Hub, it's not free but I think it will do the job. Why not convert it to mp4? As you said your Philips is a Mp3/Mp4 player?

    @nomwwev, as oliverlim1078 pointed out, if your player supports MP4, you can use Visualhub's simpler and free sibling, iSquint.

    Try ffmpeg one of the most robust all around free ware converters around for video.

    The installation has many steps is well worth the hassle. It doesn't do wmv but it handles most forms of mp4 conversion.

    We tried iSquint, but the videos we converted for the iPod won't play in the Philips player.
