Windows 7: Converter to AVI?

10 Jan 2011   #21

Windows 7 Home Premium 64bit

Thanks guys, reason i want to convert to avi is size mainly. I just ripped my bought copy of Avatar using DVD Decrypter and then converted it to mp4 with Handbrake. Now when i take the mp4 into Free DVDSoft video converter to convert to HTC HD2 format for my fone the file is 2.9gig and wont load. When ever i have purchased a downloaded movie it has come in an .avi file and is around 700mb so using DVDSoft converts it about the same size for my HTC as an mp4 and all those movies play fine. Its the size of the original handbrake mp4 that is giving me problems. So i thought if i could convert it to an avi it would reduce its size ?
This all sounds long winded now lol should i just find a program to convert the DVD Decrypter .vob file straight to avi ?

Am lost myself now lol thanks for any input here

You can reduce the size with mp4 or mkv, too. Click on the video tab, you will notice "Quality". Click on "target size", and put the size that you want .

But a small output size takes long time to be compressed, and the output quality may be bit compromised .
