How may I convert Quicktime files to AVI or MPG ??
The Quicktime player crashes my custom machine
and hijacks it, too.

Arrogant company, IMHO--ENOUGH SAID.

Please give a step-by-step guide if possible.

Thanks, Donald

QuickTime may be a little resource-hungry, but i've never seen it hijack a PC.

I transcode them to MPG with TMPGEnc & QTReader plugin.

Edit: I just noticed that on QTReader page there's also a MOV2AVI tool, haven't tried it though.

using mencoder, example of transcoding to xvid, mp3 in avi:

mencoder -o file.avi -oac mp3lame cbr:br=128 -ovc xvid -xvidencopts bitrate=500

(in some rare cases you may even be able to simply repack them, 3ivx comes to my mind right now)
