My Video Footage is the Wrong Format

Last month I posted several uses for video in the classroom, but what happens when your video isn’t cooperating.  If you ever have trouble having the correct video format, Zamzar can help you out.  Zamzar is a free web site that allows you to convert video files to different formats.  For instance I had a student who’s camera produced the video as .mov files, but Windows Movie Maker did not accept that type of format.  We simply went to Zamzar, followed the 4 step process, waited for the link for redownload to arrive in the e-mail inbox, clicked the link and then downloaded the files.  It is the best free video converter site that I have tested and I hope it helps you in your classroom.  Let us know if you have found a better tool!
