    I've tried googling but of course all the links lead to software that appears to be hamstrung unless a person pays. I'm wondering if there is any actual freeware that will perform this task?

    Handbrake won't do it?

    Quicktime Pro will. You can also drop them into iMovie and re-export, but that's a pain and a half.

    VLC transcode.

    Also MPEG Streamclip.

    Thanks. Giving Handbrake a shot now--seems like it should do it.

    EDIT: Worked a treat!
