I don't think xnview is capable of that. I would suggest VirtualDubMod: http://virtualdubmod.sourceforge.net/

TMPGEnc Free should also be able to do it.

I don't think so. Entering the video territory can be quite challenging (if you allow conversion, then people will ask for editing features) and XnView is not a video editor. There are already quite good applications, like those already mentionned.
Viewing video is enough.

What oliver said. Even simple conversion of video isn't always simple, plus it almost always soaks up a great deal of resources (way more than anything xnview does currently). Xnview isn't a video editor, and it shouldn't try to be.

I agree that we don't need that. It would be nice to be able to extract the frames from more movie formats than now though.

(video convert)

NO. One would have to include all the codecs into XNView, and this would
increase the complexity and size (and number of bugs :bug:) of
XNView by factor 10. The well-designed well-working program
of reasonable download size, working on older PC's also would be no longer.
There is indeed no WinZIP under my rock.

I second the above opinions: We must not introduce video conversion in XnView.
