Video transcoding help request

I have a .mov file (12 MB) that I need to convert to something MS Powerpoint
accepts, e.g. .mp4. I've tried Handbrake, but although it doesn't seem to
terminate with an error, it produces a 2 KB file that is crap. Suggestions
would be appreciated.

Here's the Handbrake output from one attempt:

I was able to convert the file using MeGUI. No idea why Handbrake failed.

This is why I stick with FFmpeg. I think Handbrake uses the FFmpeg codecs
anyway.

It works! Why didn't I think of that? I wasted a couple of hours trying
various things.

Gentle people:

1) FFmpeg attacks almost any video or audio file and spits out what you
require. Get all the switches sorted first

2) Handbrake, like FFmpeg works on several platforms.

3) As does winFF

HandBrake is a GUI for all the codec engines
