How about TMPGEnc: http://www.tmpgenc.net/e_main.html
With the MOV plug-in (QTReader.vfp): http://www.geocities.com/SiliconValley/4942/svcd.html

Once in a while, I have "missing audio" problems going this route though.


Another thing I've been trying is SUPER: http://www.erightsoft.com/SUPER.html

It's freeware that has converted everything I've thrown at it. A bit on the sloooow side though.

Do you need to watch the files on something other than your computer? I'm asking because if you just don't want to install Quicktime you could try Quicktime Alternative: http://www.codecguide.com/about_qt.htm

QT Alternative is definitely nice.

There is a version of mov2avi that has a gui, which has the option of exporting wav only so this may help. When I'm encoding some video files, I often rip the video and audio streams separately then encode them together with another program like virtual dub or tmpegenc, etc.

I need to convert some mov files taken from a digital camera and convert them to avi or mpg format so I can input them into a dvd-movie program that will create a dvd of those videos.
