    It was posted elsewhere in the forum for other file types. I wasn't suggesting anything by it, merely expressing how good SUPER is

    I had a similar problem a while ago,this thread has some good suggestions:

    Convert a .MOV to something compatible with Powerpoint and Vista out of the box

    Out of all of them I found "Media Converter" best - I'd post the file as it's free but it's a leeeetle bit to big

    If you mean Super, I think you can get it from FileHippo (if you can get to that site). I can't, so unable to check.

    You may also want to check out winff which has a simpler GUI than SUPER and is available for Windows AND Linux, for all you techies who prefer your apps free AND cross platform

    WinFF - Free Video Converter

    You can't download Super through a proxy server, as they have "done" something to it, I'm not sure if it is intentional. I say proxy, it may work through transparent proxies, but we don't have one at school.

    I convert avi to mpeg using ffmpeg in Linux. It's command line but it's easy... grab yourself an ubuntu disk, forget this windows stuff

    I think replacing my OS at work might be a bit overkill just to convert an AVI file and i'm not going to take them home with me. Super seems to be doing the trick.

    I was thinking you'd run it from the live CD actually
