Conversion From Quicktime Movies To Wmv Format

Question

Why does Toast's Converter only do 30 seconds of my 3m14s quicktime movie when converted to a WMV file?

 

Why didn't you post this in the Toast forums?

According to Tsantsee, this 30 secs conversion is due to a license restriction of WMV. You need to purchase the $49 Studio version of Flip4Mac for you to convert the full length of your videos in WMV format. You can purchase it here.

This is because Flip4Mac has the license with Microsoft for decoding wmv files on a Mac. Flip4Mac charges $49 for that license but does offer a free version that supports wmv playback and up to 30 seconds of conversion. Toast does not include a Flip4Mac license so you need to get that on your own or use a PC to make those conversions.

I know that I need to buy Flip 4 Mac studio to convert files to wmv using Toast. Does anyone know what choice of codec is then available? The files I want to create I know work made using wmv codec8 on a Windows machine. It looks as if Toast just offers codec9 (standard or advanced). I know nothing really about codecs - is 9 much different from 8 - what is standard v advanced. This is maybe not the forum, but any comments welcome before I waste money on studio.

I don't think you need Flip4Mac to convert videos to wmv. You need it to convert from wmv to other formats on a Mac. I don't know anything about wmv's specs so can't comment on that. Toast offers either WMV 9 Standard or WMV 9 Advanced as options.
