I've had the pleasure of helping out our excellence music teacher Mr. Johnson to clean out his old laptop. He has a lot of videos that he has made over the years using Windows Movie Maker. The problem is that our version of Quicktime on the Mac won't play the MTS and MPEG files that his movies have been saved in. I discovered that the free download Burn will convert the files to an mpg for me and then burn them. This will give Mr. Johnson the option of watching the videos on any DVD player. So he will go to five flash drives to a couple of DVDs. Apple online support also recommended Telestream Flip4Mac free download to play Window's Movie Maker videos. Telestream was easy to install and does play his Windows files. Thanks Apple Support!
Next Mr. Johnson's task should be to upload all of his documents to the cloud so he can really be free of all those flash drives. So all you awesome BPS teachers, give the G-Migos a shout out if you are need of assistance to convert files, transfer files, or double check that you've got what you need before going all out Mac!
