As the name of this software implies, MPEG TO AVI allows you to convert video files from the MPEG format to the AVI extension. It can be easily used by beginners.
The interface of the application is based on a plain and simple window in which you can import video clips by using the file browser only, because the "drag and drop" method is not supported. Batch processing is not allowed.
So, all you have to do is specify the output destination and filename, in order to proceed with the encoding job.
But you can also preview clips in a built-in media player and trim them by marking the start and end position, as well as configure audio and video settings when it comes to the resolution, frame rate, resize mode, compressor and others. Options can be reset to their default values.
The simple-to-use video conversion software uses a moderate amount of system resources, includes a well-drawn help file for all user levels, can take a while to complete a task but manages to keep a good image and sound quality. We haven't come across any issues during our testing.
However, the interface is outdated and the response time is not very good. Also, you cannot customize program properties (e.g. enable MPEG TO AVI to automatically turn off the computer after encoding, disable program sounds). Plus, the fact that batch processing is not supported is a major downside. We recommend you look for something more advanced than this tool.
