How do I deal with Indeo Video 5 on OS X?

I have a set of 45 short videos that I need to batch convert to anything that plays nicely with Quicktime on OS X, which is almost anything but the .avi with Indeo Video 5 they're in now. I tried QT Pro, ffmpeg and VisualHub before reading that Indeo and OS X just don't work together. I have a MacBook with WinXP under Parallels to work with, but I don't know video conversion on Windows at all. It seems like VirtualDub would help, but I can't figure out the batch conversions. My attempts yield me responses like "the function SetMode was called on a stream [?] that hasn't been previously initalized with SetSource". Say what?

Cycling miles to running miles. What's the conversion ratio?

I'm training for an ultramarathon in the summer and I'm trying to get my weekly mileage totals up. However, there might be several times a week when I'll be mountain biking circa 80 km/50 miles in a day. My question is: if I was to try and convert these cycling miles into running miles, how many running miles would 50 cycling miles be worth? What would the conversion ratio be like? [more inside]

VOB to MOV... How?

I need to convert a short VOB file into a reletively high quality, uncompressed MOV file... it's for my reel and I am having a heck of a time finding a way to convert it while keeping the sound and image quality reletively intact. I have managed to create an AVI and a MPG/MPEG... but they don't want to be good little children and convert to MOV's through the freeware I have. Help!

Convert to Real Media files on OS X?

I have a current project I'm working on that I have to output a Quicktime file as a RealMedia (.rm) for a Real Helix Server. Apperently the format is locked and I have no input on using a different file but I'm having trouble getting the video converted to .rm on OS X. I've done quite a bit of searching but I don't seem to have any options, RealMedia seems to have locked down their format so that their files can only be written with RealProducer, which only runs on Windows/Linux. Anyone have any ideas? Thanks! [more inside]

Illustrator to shapefile conversion?

I'm trying to figure out a way to convert a vector map image, in Adobe Illustrator, to a .shp shapefile usable in GIS software like ArcSoft. I know very little about ArcSoft and shapefiles. Is there a plugin? Is there some intermediary format I could export from one and import to the other? Is this simply impossible? My research thus far has been fruitless, so any help would be much appreciated.

I need to edit some video files I've shot on my camera. The problem is that the camera's video files export as .MOV and I can't find a good entry-level Windows program that supports the file type. Could someone recommend either a program that will let me edit this file type, or a good freeware converter? And if I do change them over to .AVI, what are some recommendations for a good yet simple Windows video editor?
