Either use Handbrake like others suggested or you could try Super. The name and website are horrendous, but the quality it outputs is quite nice imho. And it's free.

I use FormatFactory to convert video, audio, and picture files it's free. Just do search for it.

Hello,

The website is horrendous.

+1

The first time I used it, I acutally ran malware and my antivirus. It just looks like a pool of malware but it seems to be germ free.

Why do people keep suggesting Handbrake for this? It neither supports WMV as an input, nor does it output AVI. It outputs H.264 as MP4 or MKV only.

Host it as a private file on the likes of youtube and share a link or as already suggested load it into the cloud and post links as it only s small file size.

"Handbrake can process most common multimedia files and any DVD or BluRay sources that do not contain any kind of copy protection." I really thought it supported WMV, been a while since I've used it. But I know for a fact Super supports it, hence the "or you could try..."

i have tried all, the best one with almost 100% perfect results (i convert A LOT) is freemake. When installing, make sure to UNCHECK the adware!

my wmv file size is  9.3 MB.

 

I want to convert this to a low sized file  and then will send via email ......so that my user can open in windows media player.  

 

I think  avi will compress a bit and can be played in windows media player.

 

Best thing to be honest would be to use ffmpeg - you'll need to learn how to configure it but it'll do a pretty good job.
