This is a simple program for conversion of Windows Media Player WMV files into MP4 Movies playable by I-pod (resolution of 640 by 480 pixels for MPEG-4). It is a Windows wrapper around FFmpeg program. The program is open source, free, given under Gnu Lesser General Public License.
The program is built in .NET 2.0 so if you use executables only you must ensure you have that version of the framework installed. If you use Windows installer and double-click setup.exe you will be prompted to download and install the framework in case you don't have it. The code is in C# and Windows Forms. I have used Visual Studio "Orcas", so you may need to download it (it is free) if you want to open the project files.
If you want to change the path to default output or input folders you can edit WmvForIpod.exe.config that should be next to WmvForIpod.exe file or if you've used the installer you will find it at C:\Program Files\WmvForIpod\WmvForIpod 0.9\WmvForIpod.exe.config
I decided to develop such a tool because I wanted to watch Channel 9 movies on my I-pod but Wmv is not a playable format on I-pod players.
