How to Convert MKV to AVI and Vice Versa
The MKV or Matroska format is getting more and more popular among online file sharers. It was designed as a new standard for high quality video compression, and is able to combine HD video with multiple audio tracks and subtitle tracks, which can lead to very large file sizes – over 4 GB. This becomes a problem because they don't fit on flash drives, steal a lot of disk space on your computer, and require a very powerful system for smooth playback. However, we often don’t really need all this data, so it’s important to have software at hand to convert MKV to AVI or another common format. Movavi offers an easy solution for fast MKV to AVI conversion.
Download Movavi Video Converter for Windows or Mac right now and give it a try. Just follow these simple steps below to start converting MKVs to AVI.
1. Install the Program on Your PC or Mac
Once the installation file has downloaded to your hard drive, open it and follow the on-screen instructions. Installation typically takes around half a minute.
2. Add MKV Files to the Program for Encoding
Click Add Media, then Add Video and open the files you want to convert. The batch conversion feature enables you to encode multiple files simultaneously, so you don’t have to add and convert them one by one.
3. Select the Output Format
Navigate to Video > AVI and select the AVI preset that best suits your needs. If you use Windows and your computer supports Intel® or CUDA graphics technologies, the conversion process may be accelerated. If you are simply converting from MKV to AVI without changing the codec or resolution, the files will be converted even faster using the SuperSpeed technology.
Video Converter supports more than 180 different multimedia formats and codecs, so you’re sure to find the one you need. Typically, MKV files can be compressed into AVI, but you can also change AVI to MKV or another movie format if you wish.
4. Start the Conversion
Once everything is set, check the Save to field below the presets ribbon and make sure the output files will be saved in the right place. Click the Convert button to start. The folder containing the converted files will open automatically once the operation is complete.
