Convert ASF to MOV
ASF (Advanced Systems Format) is a proprietary video and audio container format, a part of Windows Media framework. It always contains audio (Windows Media Audio .wma) and (Windows Media Video .wmv) video data and optionally metadata, such as title, author, and copyright bibliographic data. They can be compressed by various video codecs.
Have some .asf files on hard drive and want to play it back on MOV-supported programs or devices like QuickTime, iTunes, iPad, etc. In the case, you may need to convert ASF to MOV. There are some programs available for doing the conversion. Here I strongly recommend the professional iOrgSoft ASF to MOV Video Converter, which can not only do the simple video conversion job, but also edit and personalize video clip with ease.
