Saving Movies From A Digital Camera for the Web

Digital still cameras take movies in a variety of formats; some more accessible to a broad user base than others. Kodak, Nikon, and Olympus commonly record movies in the QuickTime MOV format, which is not easily edited by all video editing apps and require QuickTime for viewing (which may be something people either can’t install due to IT department mandate or general aversion to installing programs on their systems). MOV files also tend to be much larger than alternatives, which slows down viewing for users on dial up.
