How to Convert AVI Files

Edited by Pat Bitton

September 26, 2018

Got lots of AVI video you'd like to watch on your mobile device? With the right software, you'll be able to do it very quickly and easily.

However, you may encounter certain problems.

Jerky footage in the videos?

This may be caused by the large size of your AVI files. Reducing their size should help – just get appropriate software and use it to compress the files.

The sound of the files is too low?

Your device may have weak speakers or relatively old firmware. A nice way to solve this one is to raise the sound level in the files themselves using a good media app.

Your TV doesn’t show subtitles?

The TV may work incorrectly with this particular subtitle file format. What you can do is merge the subtitles into the video itself – just use the right conversion tool.

The Video Converter by Movavi can help you solve all these problems. Try it to convert your AVI files to the MP4 format as well as to MOV, FLV, MKV, 3GP, AVCHD, DVD-compatible video, or to any other media format. The app can also help you convert your AVI to WAV, FLAC, MP3, and other popular audio formats.
