I have several files I have downloaded with the .ASF extension.. I wanted to know if there was a way to decompress them to their original form ? Please help me !!!

ASF cannot be converted to anything else. I don't know why you would want to, as ASF is worse quality than even MPEG

There's supposedly a way (I'm trying it now).. You need the direct x sdk 6.0 (there's a faq for it; search for vcd faq in yahoo)

You can extract the video from an .asf file using TMPGenc ( but it takes a while. I'm still looking for a way to extract the sound and sync the two together :-(

ASF Tools will convert .ASF files to .AVI. Then, you can convert .AVI to .MPG with TMGEnc. Here's the link:
