Need Help converting files

Need Help converting files.

What program will convert Windows Media Audio/Video files to AVI or other formats?

And how do you compress video files so you can have more then 2 hrís on a DVD?

This is why no one should ever use a Microsoft codec. Once you encode a file into WMV, you're sort of screwed in terms of what you can do with it. There are programs out there that will convert WMV to other file formats, but it's an extra step that can be avoided if you simply use any of the open codecs like Xvid.

Anyway, yeah, I know you can't always help what format others use to give you video. I haven't used it myself, but there's a program called STOIK or something like that which I sometimes see recommended. There's also a technique using graphedit, but that's sort of a bitch to learn.
