How to Convert Movie Clips to MP4

Movie clips appear in various forms online. When streaming directly from websites, they may be in the Flash Video (.flv) or MPEG (.mpg) formats. If you receive the movie clip on a sharing network, it may be in the audio video interleave (.avi) or Windows Media Video (.wmv) format. In order to convert any of these formats into an MPEG-4 (.mp4), you can use an online conversion service, which performs this kind of conversion for free.
