I'm not complaining. I'm only asking if there is a way for me to
convert an mp4 video to wmv

It looks like ffmpeg is what I need and perhaps I just don't know the
correct way to use ffmpeg or perhaps the version I have doesn't have
that capability.

Perhaps my ill use of in searching for the commands to
convert is the problem.

I appreciate your taking the time to read my email and then to reply.
