Review: Free AVI to MOV converter isn't fast, but it converts video files well

Convert your video files to a new format so they work with more players.

Free AVI to MOV converter isn't as fast or dynamic as other converters, but it gets the job done. It sports a helpful layout that's easy to figure out. If you don't care about other video formats and can afford to wait a bit longer for your video to convert, this converter will provide you with admirable performance and no watermarks -- which is neat for a free program.

Since this program only converts AVI files to MOV format, it won't change them back or to any other formats, so don't expect a universal converter. However, when it comes to flipping files into MOV, this program does a great job. Free AVI to MOV converter does not reduce the audio or video quality of any video you run through it. Plus, it has an interface that mimics Windows' own, so it's easy to find the files you're looking for. If you want to do more than one file at a time, the program can scan an entire folder and find all of its AVI files in a matter of seconds. However, when it comes to converting, the program is much slower. It took about six minutes to convert a two-minute clip. So, if you have a long clip, you would need to be able to set it and forget it.

If you don't mind waiting and need MOV files, Free AVI to MOV converter outputs great-quality videos. It saves you from downloading a bigger, more complex converter, if that's all you need.
