Seem to be following the instructions/directions ok. On the Add tab, selecting video; locating and tagging the appropriate .mov file (which brings doc name and location to right side of screen; clicking on NEXT; selecting the Format "MOV" from the list (screen pop with MOV quality selections and Settings on it: FFmpeg Arguments field has an autofill value starting with -s and the quality I selected); clicking on NEXT; clicking on CONVERT. Almost immediately, there is a gold error triangle with exclamation point inside. When I move my mouse over the triangle, there is the location and name of the .mov file and then "Invalid argument". Any clue as to what I'm doing wrong or neglecting to do? Thanks.

What app are you using to do the conversion? Handbrake? Live Movie Maker? Or?

Have you tried VLC? I've had good results with that one converting to/from different formats. I can send click by click instructions if you want to try it.

I'm gonna take a look at it, thanks. If I get in trouble, I'll take you up on your offer. Panasonic has also sent me suggestions.

We have a tutorial on how to do this with Windows Live Movie Maker. It's simple, easy and non-problematic:

The problem is the structure of the directory. Go to settings and select save in input directory. It should work
