Tips For Converting AVI to Mp4

Most of the portable media players like iPhone, iPod, PSP, Archos, PMP, iRiver, Apple TV, Creative Zen etc. support mp4 file format. Unfortunately, they do not play our common AVI file formats. This makes it imperative to adopt a quality media converting application or software.

Your first option should be initiating an online search. This would land you up amidst hundreds of converting options. Converting applications are small in size and they are released by several big and small companies and also individual software makers. You will note that some of them are freely downloadable. However, most of them offer only a trial usage for free. This trial would last for 1 week to 30 days depending on the brand of the converting software. Once this trial is over, the software wouldn’t run. They will prompt the user with a request to buy the software since the trial period has expired.

If you ask my personal choice, not all free softwares give quality output. It would be wise to buy a multipurpose converting application. High quality converting softwares can convert your files into several diverse audio and video formats like mp4, AVI, MPEG, Flash, QuickTime Movie, 3GP, Mp3, DVD, WMV, and even Blu-ray. Although, there are softwares specially meant for conversations into mp3 and mp4.

Although I had mentioned above that it would be appropriate to invest on a good converting application or software, the fact is 60 percent of the people are using a cracked version. Alternatively, they find other methods to cheat the software providers. For instance, there are people who repeatedly activate the trial periods so that they can continue using the software by reinstalling it every time. However, it is not possible if you try this out directly. If you are using a trial mp4 converter, you won’t be able to reinstall it after the trial period has exhausted. This is because the software leaves a certain record in the registry that indicates that the trail version of the software has been run on that particular system. This mark or record prevents the software from reinstalling. There are certain registry cleaners which help the user in removing such records and entries; however, records left by powerful converters cannot be removed by normal registry cleaners. The best method to solve this issue is to use a powerful uninstalling application that can completely uninstall any kind of software without leaving any traces in the registry. Once the advanced un-installation has been executed you can reinstall the trial version again and continue using it without paying the hefty sums.

For converting AVI to mp4, you can also use certain audio editing softwares. Mp4 formats are also extensively used in Mac machines. Editing softwares can also be well used in Mac machines as they facilitate speed and quality.
