How do I convert WMV to AVI?
WMV stands for Windows Media Video. It's a video codec developed by Microsoft
to compete with other well-known video codecs, such as DivX, Xvid, RealVideo. It
is widely used by different online services that provide streaming video, and
the WMV stream itself can be encapsulated into the protected ASF format.
However, many WMV video files are available for free.
If you need such a file to be played by your DVD player, and the latter
doesn't support WMV-format, you may want to convert WMV to AVI. This can
be done with the help of Movavi Video Converter. Among other things
the program contains a full-featured WMV converter that works in the both directions.
Step 1: Download and install the program.
Download Movavi Video Converter to a known location. Run setup and follow
on-screen instructions to install it.
Step 2: Start the program. Open your WMV video file.
Launch Movavi Video Converter.
Click the large "+ VIDEO" button on the toolbar to add your WMV file(s). The
program allows you to batch-process multiple files, so you may add many WMV
In the usual Windows "Open" dialog, browse to the folder where your video
files are stored, select the one you want to convert, click "Open".
Step 3: Convert WMV to AVI.
The file will be added to the convert-list. You can preview it using the
built-in player. It is also possible to set start and end time, if you don't
intend to convert the whole file.
In the lower part of the window, go to the "Advanced" tab. In the "Output
format" area, select "AVI (Divx, Xvid, etc)" from the first dropdown list, and
"MPEG4 Xvid Compatible" from the second one. The program will automatically use
the best converting quality mode. If you don't need quality and want just quick
converting, you can change the settings by clicking the cogwheels on the right.
By default the output file will be saved in the same folder where your
original file is stored. To set another location, just uncheck the corresponding
box in the "Output directory" area and browse to another folder.
Finally, click the large "CONVERT" button in the right lower corner of the
program to convert WMV to AVI.
Converting video is a slow process, especially with the best possible
quality, so you can just let it run in the background.
The trial version of Movavi Video Converter converts only 30% of a file. If
you are satisfied with its features, you can purchase a full version and remove
all restrictions with your registration data.
