Video file converter


#1

do any of you guys know of a good… FREE file converter?

I wanna turn AVI’s to MP4. I heard MP4’s are good because they have a small file
size and good video quality

Been using for 3 years now …SUPER

MediaCoder is ridiculously easy and flexible to use.

H.264 is supposed to be better than MP4 at a given bitrate. Might want to try that also.


#5

MP4 is just one of several containers for H264 for the most part these days.


#6

Just know that by converting it with a simple program it’s not going to magically look better. That kind of stuff takes a bit more work than just changing it’s format. A shitty avi will still be a shitty mp4

Pretty much. Without considerable work with Avisynth or the like, a lossy video can never look better transcoded to another lossy format by default. Now if you need a H264 or another format, then that’s a different story. You can easily retain almost the same quality in a few clicks.
