I have a video that is quite dear to me but unfortunately dreadful quality. It's in WMV format and I've already converted it to MP4 and AVI - MP4 coming out the best and better quality than the original file. However, I wondered if there was a better conversion or any other idea which might increase the quality of this video - if anyone has any ideas I'd be very grateful?
Thanks in advance.

Usually it only gets worse, because of lossy compression. Each time you convert it with lossy compression, data is thrown away
It depends what you mean by "dreadful quality". If there is something specific, then you might be able to apply a specific filter to improve subjective quality (e.g. if too bright, then darken, if too noisy, then denoise, if it's too blocky, deblock it...etc.. you get the idea)
By dreadful quality I mean that it's barely watchable. The picture is all broken up and you can't really make out what is happening at times - I've gone to properties of the actual file and note that it says '15 frames per second' where as all my other videos seem to say 30 frames for second........possibly this is the reason.
There is a definate improvement when I convert it to AVI and a bigger improvement after being converted to MP4. It's still awful though and hence I wondered if there was a better format or something else I'm not thinking of?!
