How do I change a 25Mg mov file to a smaller mp3 file? I took it into iTunes and the choice to create an mp3 is grayed out! What other FREE options do I have to send a large file?

Hello and thank you for your question today. My name is Jason. I look forward to helping you today.

A mov file is normally a movie and an MP3 file is normally only audio.

You can convert your MOV file to many different forms with this application: http://www.macxdvd.com/mov-video-converter-free/ On that page, click the Download button, save the file, and install it.

If the MOV file is only audio, you should convert it to MP3.

If the MOV file is also video, you should convert it to MPEG.

Another option you could use is to upload the MOV file to http://www.wikisend.com and email the link that it gives you after the upload to whoever you want to see it. You can email it to them.



Thank you.

The videos are located in your Movies folder, within the MP4 folder.

When the conversion begins, just be sure to uncheck the box that says, "Add files to iTunes Library after conversion."

  • Hi John, Thank you for your expertise and, more important, for your kindness because they make me, almost, look forward to my next computer problem. After the next problem comes, I'll be delighted to correspond again with you. I'm told that I excel at programing. But system administration has never been one of my talents. So it's great to have an expert to rely on when the computer decides to stump me. God bless, Bill Bill M. Schenectady, New York
