4U AVI MPEG Converter is a simple-to-use program which allows you to encode videos between several formats, including AVI, MPG, WMV, and MOV.
If you're using Windows 7, then make sure to run 4U AVI MPEG Converter with administrative rights. Otherwise, it will pop up some errors that will prevent you from encoding clips.
The software comes with a user-friendly interface in which you can import videos via the file browser only since the "drag and drop" method is unsupported. Batch processing is permitted.
In the "Options" area you can specify the output profile and destination folder, in order to initiate the conversion process.
In addition, you can modify audio and video preferences when it comes to the frame rate and size, channels, sample frequency rate, bit rate, channels, and others. Settings can be restored to their default values at any time.
Furthermore, you can enable 4U AVI MPEG Converter to overwrite existing files without prompt, delete the target file when canceled, save the file list for further use and to delete the source file after finishing a conversion job, as well as schedule a task on any date of the current week, set the tool to exit or to turn off the computer when all tasks are completed, and others.
4U AVI MPEG Converter runs on a very low amount of system resources, includes a step-by-step guide with snapshots and quickly finishes a conversion job. The image and sound quality is maintained at a very good level.
On the other hand, the tool froze several times during our tests, in the middle of an AVI-to-WMV and MPG-to-AVI conversion. It seems to have some stability issues with Windows 7. Even so, we suggest you test the software for yourself to see if it matches your preferences.
