What program is best for converting Avi files to Wmv?

I have several large (duh) AVI files that I would like to compress.

What program would be most suitable for converting these files to WMV’s or something of comparable size?

Windows Media Encoder 9 imo -

Winavi is the best program i think

I’d go with WME, assuming you don’t have access to an app like Premiere or something.

Even then, WME is straight from the source.

ya… winavi is pretty much converts anything into anything… its good for converting those stupid real media format stuff

my balls are best.

Anyone know of an all purpose free video converter?

I have MOV. files and I want to change them to WMV if possible.
