Free AVI Video Converter is a free video conversion program developed by DVDVideoSoft.[1] It is written in C++, and uses .NET Framework for its user interface.[2]

Overview[edit]

It is a freeware program,[3] which converts video files from one video format to another, mainly to (Windows default) AVI format.[4] AVI format support is better than in other (MP4/WebM etc.) DVDVideoSoft conveters. Free AVI Video Converter is distributed as a part of Free Studio and as a separate download.[3][5]

Developer[edit]

DVDVideoSoft is a software company specializing in free multimedia applications development.[6]

Interface and features[edit]

Free AVI Video Converter shares a basic interface style and background with other DVDVideoSoft's video converters.[7] The applications supports drag-n-drop. By clicking Quality button output formats and output qualities are selected.[3][8] Among the output video formats there is also audio format MP3, which is used to extract music from video files.[3][9] By clicking the Magic Wand icon Preset Editor is started, a tool for changing any of the existing presets or creating a completely new one.[10] Program's options include a selection of themes for the program's interface and a single and a batch mode support.[4][9] It is possible to add manually more information about output MP4 video and MP3 audio files or by default the program will automatically fill the title tag and the artwork, taking a snapshot from the middle of video which can be seen in iTunes, Winamp, Windows Explorer.[9][11] The program supports encoding of media files by means of NVIDIA Cuda and ATI Stream technologies, which can boost conversion speed up to several times depending on hardware configuration.[12][13]
