How to Convert MOV to AVI
The MOV video format is popular among Mac users because it was originally designed by Apple as part of QuickTime technology. But it’s less useful for Windows users as they need to install additional software in order to play MOV files. If you have a movie in the MOV format and want to upload it online to share with your friends or watch on your mobile device, it’s a good idea to learn how to convert MOV to AVI – probably the most popular video format. We recommend you use Movavi Video Converter, the simplest conversion software for everyday use that also offers additional features for advanced users. Just follow the four easy steps below for converting from MOV to AVI.
1. Install Movavi Video Converter for MOV to AVI Encoding
Download the program file, open it and follow the on-screen instructions.
2. Add MOV Files to the Program
Click the Add Media button in the top left corner of the program window, then select Add Video, and open the MOV files you want to convert. And don't worry, you don't even need to have QuickTime installed – Movavi Video Converter supports MOV conversion out of the box.
3. Specify the Output Video Preset
You will find AVI in the groups of different output presets at the bottom of the program interface. Select Video > AVI > AVI to change your MOV file to AVI without adjusting the bitrate or resolution or choose the AVI preset with the resolution and codec that best suit your needs. You can also use these presets to change the format of uncompressed DV AVI files from a digital camera so they can be saved as smaller AVI videos.
Note that, when you use the new SuperSpeed mode, you can change the video format without losing quality.
4. Run the Video Conversion
Click the Convert button in the bottom right corner to transfer your files to the new format. You can use Movavi’s converter not just for MOV to AVI encoding but also for AVI to MOV conversion and for converting to and from more than 180 other multimedia file types.
