Choose AVI format to convert the file

You may change your MP4 file length or orientation before the conversion. Open the editor window by clicking on scissors sign. Don't forget to click "OK" to apply changes.

After that, pay attention to the bottom of the Windows freeware, find and click the "to AVI" output option on the video formats bar. There will appear a new window with ready output format parameters. Each quality choice is made for a particular purpose. For playback on Samsung, Sony, LG or other TV, go for "TV quality" option. If your original media is in HD, you may choose between "HD 720p" and "HD 1080p" qualities depending on the video resolution. To keep the movie as-is for a PowerPoint presentation, select "Same as source" preset.

Fine-tune your AVI video before conversion

Please take into account:
By default, the conversion app outputs the converted video with the h.264 codec, stereo channel and MP3 audio path. To change it, choose to create a custom preset and select the desired video codec (DivX, MPEG-4), video resolution, audio codec, frame rate, and other video parameters. Whether you use the same settings all the time, name the preset and save it for future using. You can add an unlimited number of custom profiles to convert MP4 files.

When you are done with the quality choice, don't forget to choose it for your future videos. Then set a destination folder. It can be your computer hard drive, or you may export them to a USB flash drive.

Please note that the original videos won’t be removed or substituted. Instead, Freemake will create new output videos with the changes you’ve made. Make sure you have enough of free space on your device for the new converted media.

Convert MP4 to AVI file format

Freemake tool works fast. The last thing you should do is to start the transformation process. It’s pretty easy to change container formats with Freemake. Click the blue "Convert" button and wait for some time. For large films or many 1Gb videos, it may require some time for the encoding to finish. The conversion speed will depend on your computer parameters.

If you convert during night time, you don't need to wait till the videos are ready. The free utility can shut down the PC when the job is done.

When your AVI clip is ready, check it with any standard video player (for example, Windows Media Player by Microsoft). There is the "Open file" button straight in Freemake Video Converter window.
