Since my Olympus digital camera only outputs video in mov format I was looking for a way to easily convert mov files to a better format.

And along came RAD Video Tools.

RAD Video Tools does exactly that: choose a mov file, click on "Convert a file", choose the output type (I use avi, which is also the default), and click "Convert".

The one small annoyance is that it installs something called "Bink and Smacker" that you don't really know what to do with and seems confusing.

If mov converting is what you want then just ignore it, use the "Convert" function, and you'll be fine.

Oh yea, RAD Video Tools is absolutely free so you can't go wrong.
