Hi Rob,

Not sure if MPEG-4 is something that works with a Mac - but the paid version of Jing is only $14.95 for a year and allows you to save in MPEG-4 which at the very least might be more easily converted by something like Format Factory. It also has some other features...  Of course then you'd only have one account that can record this way...not perfect...

I am looking for an open source (read: free!) solution for converting
flash movies to mpeg, or a format readable by iTunes.  Oh by the
way...needs to be Mac software!  I've tried Handbrake and iSquint, but
haven't had luck thus far.
The problem is I have several students making Jing movies/tutorials using
the free version of Jing.  It's fine to upload those to,
but we really want to put the tutorials on ipods as part of the class'
tutorial resources collection.  Apparently Jing creates the swf in a way
that handbrake won't rip.
Does anyone have thoughts or workarounds for us?
thanks so much!
