How big is your "little movie", WMM loads the files into memory before it loads them to disk, so it has a very bad habit of running out of memory, one reason I don't use it very much.

There's any number of good converters, but some are fairly expensive.

In this case it's the file size that matters, if they are bigger than your available memory, you can check that in Task Manager, the memory will bottom out.

In that case more ram would help but it might be cheaper to find an application that writes to disk as it converts.
