    A good video converter?

    I have an MKV file that contains all the footage I need for the main running footage of my game (4.37 GB's). It's in 1280x720 at 29.97 frames per second.

    I used Any Video Converter to convert it to a WMV File. However, several unfortunate things happened to the video after conversion:

    *I lost 4.97 frames. So the converted vid runs at 25 instead of the original 29.97.

    *The video now skips and stutters.

    I've heard of a freeware converter called "Super", and I've seen great reviews of it. What do you think of "Super"? http://www.free-codecs.com/download/super.htm

    Are there any other's out there that may be able to convert an MKV to an WMV with killing the framerate?

    Super is great, I have used it in the past to convert small clips into dvds. Works great and has tons of options. Good choice.

    But you have to invest some time to check out the option and also play with filesize and settings.

    Maximum, check the settings of your convertion program, sounds like it is set to export PAL format, that's why it's playing at 25 fps and stuttering. You need to set it to NTSC which is 29.97 fps and this should give you the correct result.

    Another alternative to use Windows Movie Maker. This will convert your movie to WMV format and maintain the frames per second setting. Though not sure if it will import a MKV file, I've never even heard of this extension. Also, it may resize the video to 640 x 480 to take that into consideration.

    I don't believe Windows Movie Maker supports MKV's, and unless you use the live version it cuts out some really vibrant colors.

    For video conversion I usually use one of the many ffmpeg wrappers, but VLC might be another one to try.

    SUPER is great, but the configuration is confusing sometimes...and it's slow in converting (on my PC, if you have PC with high specs then that is in different case).

    I'm using Total Video Converter. It's easy to use, and supports many formats. I think MKV is supported too. But this program is not free.

    But I prefer SUPER, if you need the better results
