convert wmv to avi

Asked by Rossco on 2008-07-01

I have down loaded from the internet a number of wmv files, I want to be able to burn them onto a dvd with menus, for a friend with no internet access. I'm using Kino to do the job, but it won't import the wmv files correctley. the audio plays normally, but video is in fast forward. I'm wanting a converter to convert wmv to avi, so the files will play and render properly in Kino. I'm using Ubuntu Hardy Heron, any help will be appreciated.

Thanks
Rossco.
