I have a .w4v video which plays on either itunes or Quicktime for Mac. I would like to be able to play it on a windows based computer. I was told to just change the .w4v to .wp4 and it would work (but it didn't).
From my research, I now understand that I need to convert the video format (not just change the extension).
1. Does anyone have any recommendations as to a specific conversion software which is reliable?
2. Do they offer the service for free or do they all charge?
3. Would I load the conversion software on my Mac, convert the file, then be able to play it on the windows-based computer? Or initiate the conversion from the windows based computer? Right now the windows computer will not open the file, so I'm not sure if it would be able to convert from that.
Any assistance is appreciated.
