How to Select the Best AVI Converter for YouSeptember 15th, 2011 | Posted by in Downloads | Free Software | Software
Audio Video Interleave/Interleaved, commonly shortened to AVI is a type of multimedia container. AVI files may involve both audio and video in the same file. Many people use AVI to play their songs and videos and this also supports multiple streaming. Now, if you have several audio or video files in different formats and you wish to convert them into AVI, you need an AVI converter. This software application can also be utilized to convert AVI files into other formats.
It is common for us to look at the price of the product and choose the cheapest one. However, when selecting the AVI converter for you, there are other things that you should take a peek at before the cost. First is the format/s of the files that are supported. There are some that only allow you to convert MPEG to AVI/AVI to MPEG while others are only designed for converting AVI to MP4 and vice versa. This is a great choice if you only have these file formats in your system but it is generally a bad idea to get those products that are specifically designed for a single purpose just so you could save on the cost.
You can actually double or even triple your savings if you find an AVI converter which supports multiple formats for conversion including those that are common namely MP3, AAC, WAV, MPEG and MOV. The second aspect that you should examine includes the key features of the software. Aside from being able to convert to AVI or convert AVI files to another format, what are the other qualities of the application you are eyeing upon?
Most excellent converters today have additional features such as allowing the users to join or combine video files together. There are also some that enable the use of cutting or shortening music files while others let you merge songs with videos. Though they are limited in features when it comes to editing music and video files, these are great additions to the key qualities of the AVI converter.
There are converters which you can integrate to your browser. If you have spotted your favorite video online, you can automatically download the video file without the need to convert it after the downloading process. This saves you a lot of time already. Of course, since we are talking about time, it is essential that your AVI converter can provide you with fast results. There are quite a number of converters out there that not only eat your system resources out but they are also very slow when altering the file format of your video or audio file. We all know that time is of the essence and hence the AVI converter that we must use should not waste our precious time.
Now, you can take a look at the price of your AVI converter. If it is worth it, buy the full version. If you can find a good free AVI converter, go for it.
