Convert MP4's to AVI's?

I have a 1.5 minute video (MP4) that I took with my nano - and its HUGE in file size. My husband tells me I need to convert it to an AVI to get the file size smaller for easier downloading (online).

I've searched google and there's a lot of programs available. A lot of them want you to register ($).... Others are free downloads and you can't even try it without registering. I want something free and something that's easy to use.

I have Windows 7, itunes, Adobe CS3 web premium.... I'm really not sure if any of these programs have the capabilities to do this or not. Does Windows Media player do this? I actually looked at it and didn't recognize anything that would convert....

Any suggestions?

I'll give it a try....all I need (atleast for now) is one file to be converted. I'll probably never need to use it again.

Thanks!

I tried it (without paying).....and it'll only convert 50% of the original file. Have to pay for it to get full usage.

Still investigating....

No worries....
I would've paid for it also in your situation.
I just have one I need to convert - just trying to reduce the overall size of the thing.
