    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
