So I have some webcam sessions saved in aMSN, but the file format won't play in any media player. Is there some way I can convert them to .avi or .mpg format?

Share the files and let me have a play ;)

That sounds so dodgy.


Have you got Flip4Mac installed? Also, try VLC.

The files are .cam format. Tried VLC. Tried to convert them with ffmpeg and Soxwrap but they don't recognise the format.

Maybe try MaCam (http://webcam-osx.sourceforge.net/).. Not even sure that it will open a file, though.

aMSN can convert them to quicktime files. I'll just have to download it again to remember how.

EDIT: Sorry I was thinking about Mercury Messenger. ignore me.
