thanks yargwel, well this is going to be fun im dumb whenit comes to these things so i want to find the easyest fix lol .
? am i still going to be able to use my media player for the main player of all my vids once i run it through the vid converter?and then add it to my windows movie maker. i want it to be veiwable to others on the net. 90% of them have wmp or quicktime. im trying to make some vids to share w/ other in our club so i need it to be readable to others too.
does the quick time pro have movie making in it ?(adding still shots and music)

To answer your questions in order: Yes you can still use media player as your main player.
This is what the Apple site says about QT Pro which costs $30 by the way::
