Converting a .mov file to a .m4v file

Past experience has shown that some .mov files (especially very large ones) are not fully supported in VoiceThread. We have heard reports of uploading or conversion problems for some.
For updated information about currently supported file types, please visit: http://voicethread.com/support/howto/Troubleshooting/File_types_accepted/
One process that has shown to be successful is to convert the file to a .m4v format. This greatly reduces the file size compared to a .mov file and enables the VoiceThread service to more reliably upload and process the video data.
How to convert a .mov to a .m4v file:
Mac Users, OS X Lion and higher with QuickTime Player (version 10.1)
Windows Users with iTunes (version 11):
