Convert video file to another file format

If you are experiencing troubles with a specific video file, it might help to transform the media file into a different file format. On a Mac you can open the file with Quicktime Player and export it in the MP4 format. On a Windows PC open (or download and install) the free Microsoft Movie Maker. Then open the video file with Movie Maker and save as MP4.
