I recorded a 5 minute video with my phone, it is a 565M MP4 file. I need to submit it as MOV, specifically. All online converters reject the file as 'too large' and all downloadable programs cost at least $20, which I don't want to spend on a single file. Is there a (legal) way to do it? I'm using Windows 10 and have no access to a Mac.

    ffmpeg is a free command line tool and can do it. Get executable files from ffmpeg.org/download.html – Gyan Feb 15 at 12:43
  • You could try just changing the file extension. No, really; mp4 and mov are pretty much the same thing so this 'one weird trick' often works. But since you said "submit", don't rely on it without testing first. – stib Feb 15 at 12:47
