Developed by Microsoft, WMV is well supported by Windows platform. But other portable devices may not recognize this kind of files. How to solve the unsupported video file issue for smooth playback? One of the useful methods is converting these files to commonly used video formats like AVI, which is compatible with more players than WMV. The following shows you how to convert WMV to AVI in detail. Read on if you’re interested.
The WMV AVI conversion requires a good video converter. I’d recommend WonderFox HD Video Converter Factory Pro, a professional application to help you convert video/audio files efficiently. It can create a perfect balance between the file size and video quality. If you want smaller size or higher quality, this converter offers flexible options to achieve your goal, such as changing video bitrate, upscaling resolution, compression, cutting, etc.
Launch HD Video Converter Factory Pro and open the Converter. Next, click Add Files or Add Video Folder to load your WMV file(s). More easily, you can drag and drop the source video(s) into the program.
Open the output format drop-down list on the right side. As you can see, there are more than 500 video formats and devices that you can select as your target format. Then, head over to Video category and select AVI profile right there.
Tips. The "Quick Setting" under the format image can help you set resolution values rapidly. You can modify other parameters like audio bitrate, video frame rate, aspect ratio, and volume in the settings section.
Set an output folder to store your converted video(s). When all is ok, click Run to start converting WMV to AVI. The process should take a few seconds to several minutes, relying on the video(s) size.
When you search for how to convert .wmv to .avi on Google, you may find there are many methods, including desktop converter software and online video converters. Online tools seem to be more convenient, but the fact is on the contrary. Generally speaking, there’re quite a few restrictions on online converters. For instance, some limit video length, some limit video size or converting times. Moreover, converting online consumes more time. One WMV file (8 minutes, 77MB) to AVI needs 2 minutes with Convertio, while that only takes 20 seconds with HD Video Converter Factory Pro. Some online converters don’t work even after you paid. So online tools are not suggested. But if you want to try, here are several WMV to AVI online converters:
That’s all I want to share with you how to convert WMV to AVI fast. Compared with online conversion tools, HD Video Converter Factory Pro is much more reliable and efficient. Hope this article could be helpful to you. Thanks for reading!
