Convert AVI to MP4

AVI files are widely popular, however you may want to convert an AVI file to an MP4 file in order to better share your video. If you’ve been downloading videos or even watching videos online, you’ve likely encountered a file in the AVI (.avi) container format. AVI files (or Audio Video Interleave) are able to contain both video and audio, and have been a popular video format for many years. However, like all video files, there may be some limitations in video playback – especially across devices. Converting AVI files to MP4 files can make it easier to share files as you can reduce the file size and playback of MP4 videos is more common across devices (e.g. mobile phones). 

Advanced Features in DivX ConverterIt’s simple to convert AVI files to MP4 files with DivX Converter. If you haven’t already, install the free DivX Software suite, which includes the DivX Player and DivX Converter. While the list below may be over-explaining, here are the steps to convert your video. 

  1. Install free DivX desktop software
  2. Open DivX Converter
  3. Drag your video file onto DivX Converter
  4. Pick a profile (in this case MP4) and click “Start”

Convert to MP4

It’s that easy to convert AVI to MP4 using DivX. Once your file is done converting you’ll have a shiny, new MP4 file. Plus, DivX Converter doesn’t have time restrictions, so you’re not limited to converting a file less than an hour long like some converters. 

Along with converting AVI video, get additional information on how to convert MKV, MOV, DivX and MPEG video to MP4.

Good luck and good converting!

Simply drag, drop and convert with DivX Converter.

So you know that it’s easy to convert video to popular formats (for example convert an .avi file to an .mp4 file), but why would you need to this?

WHY WOULD I NEED TO CONVERT VIDEOS?
There are many reasons why you may need to convert/encode/compress a video. Some of the more common reasons include:

  • CREATING A SMALLER FILE SIZE: By using the technology included in DivX Converter, you can compress your video file size without losing any significant quality. Say goodbye to massive video files.
  • MAKING THE FILE COMPATIBLE WITH ANOTHER DEVICE: Say you have .wmv file you want to play on your iPhone or iPad. Just convert it with the preset profile for your device to create a compatible .mp4 file. Don’t let file formats drag you down.
  • BACK UP DVDS: With DivX Pro and the included MPEG-2 Plug-in, you can convert non-encrypted DVDs so you can have a digital backup of your personal video collection.

ADVANCED FEATURES IN DIVX CONVERTER
In addition to the quick and simple video conversion in the free DivX Software, there are several “advanced features” of DivX Converter in the paid version. Below we’ll take a quick look at some of benefits of using the features included with DivX Pro. These features are available with DivX Pro to give you even more value from DivX Converter.

  • Trim video: Have a video with some wasted time in the beginning and/or end? Using this feature allows you to choose a starting and end point before you begin your conversion. When your file is done, it will be converted to the profile you chose, plus at the length you specified. Learn more about trimming your video.
  • Crop, rotate/flip: Filmed a video sideways? No problem. Just rotate the video until it’s correct. Or crop the borders of your video to center your subject, for example.
  • Add a custom watermark: Want to put your brand on your videos? Simply upload a logo/image, choose the level of transparency and you’re good to go.

Stream to TV with PS4 and DivX Media Server

By Jeremy Park

If you’re like me then you have years and years worth of digital videos stored on your computer hard drive(s). Files upon files of family vacations, kids growing up, plus that hearty collection of Internet videos. Whether it’s to comment on my changing hair color or to see themselves as babies, my kids love to watch the videos I took of them over the years. Sometimes we just watch those videos on the computer using DivX Player, however my kids prefer when I cast those videos to our big screen TV in our family room. To enjoy my home movies on the TV, I simply use the DivX Media Server to stream video to our Playstation. Don’t have a gaming console? No problem, DivX Media Server will work with nearly any smart TV that’s connected to the same WiFi network.

What is the DivX Media Server?

The DivX Media Server is part of our free DivX Player and it allows you to serve and send video files on your PC or Mac to a device on your home network (for example, your smart TV or gaming console). If you’re curious about how this works, the playback is done through DLNA. Remember that the device you’re streaming to must also be able to support playback of the format of your video file. 

I use a PS4 to stream my content from my computer to my TV … which is more relaxing than getting yelled at by angry teammates during Call of Duty. Here’s how I use the DivX Media server with my PS4:

1. Make sure that the PC and PS4 are on the same WiFi network.

2. Install DivX Player (part of free DivX Software) and enable the DivX Media Server.

3. Add the folders containing your videos to the DivX Media Server

4. If needed, install Media Player on your PS4. This can be downloaded from the PlayStation store (see below)

5. On the PS4 open the Media Player and select the DivX Media server from the list of available media servers.

6. Navigate to your videos and enjoy them on the big screen.

Keep in mind that whether you can play your videos will depend on the video formats supported by the device you are serving videos to. You can expand support to include .mkv files by also installing FFMPEG for transcoding.
