I've got a Flip Mino HD and am looking for a free utility that will convert the default mp4 video format into something that is Windows Movie Maker (Live or Standard) friendly.

What do you guys recommend?

SUPER © (Simplified Universal Player Encoder & Renderer) is right up to the task.

Input Video format: 3gp, 3g2, amv, asf, avi, dat, dvr-ms, fli, flc, flv, m2ts, mpg, mkv, mov m4v, mp4, nsv, ogm, qt, rm(vb), str, swf, ts, trp, ty, ty+, tmf, viv, vob, wmv ..

choose WMV as output format and you'll get a file you can then use with Windows Movie Maker.

SUPER is freeware.

Never actually worked with any of the videos on my Flip. "ERROR OCCURRED" every time regardless of the settings I've selected. – Tom Oct 27 '09 at 1:33
strange, i have no problems converting h.264 MP4. can you open and play the videos in SUPER? – Molly7244 Oct 27 '09 at 2:08
I'll check this out as soon as I get a chance - I don't wanna leave your answer unaccepted, I've just not had time to revisit it yet. – Tom Oct 28 '09 at 15:00

Another powerful Windows GUI video processor is called "MPEG Streamclip" --I use it to do exactly what you asked.
