Convert MPG to AVI

What is a good and free SW program to convert an mpg to AVI? A friend has one that is 280 megs that I want to shrink down so it can be viewed on the internet reasonably quick. Windows Movie Maker craps out when I try it. I downloaded WinMPG converter, but it has been running for 2 1/2 hours and still isn't done! Another I tried and deleted, converted it to AVI, but no sound came thru.

TIA

Go to www.divx-digest.com they have a pretty good listing of software utilities relating to divx/avi's.

you could always use windows media encoder, and encode it to asf... then it will be streamable across the internet. instead of having to download then play.
