Review: Free MKV to AVI Converter quickly and effectively transfers video files

Change your video's format so it can work with any player you like using Free MKV to AVI Converter.

Free MKV to AVI Converter does a great job of changing your video's format while maintaining all of its quality. It's a smaller download that's easy to customize, so you can have a new video file in just a few minutes. It can also be a lifesaver if all of your video files are in MKV.

Free MKV to AVI Converter converts both ways, so it's useful for turning your files into MKV files, as well. Since the program is only 8.7MB, it shouldn't take very long to download, and there is no unwanted software attached to it. To trim down the size, the program doesn't offer much in terms of a good-looking, feature-packed layout. It's basic enough to let you find exactly what you want right away, though. You can easily add a single file or even a whole folder using the plus-labeled icons or drag and drop your files into the application interface. Anytime you convert a video, the program lets you choose exactly where you want to save it. The program took about 45 seconds to convert a one-minute MKV video to AVI, so it definitely has enough speed to satisfy you. The video came out of the conversion process looking just as good as it did when it went in. The program does get thumbs down for not having any real progress bar.

Free MKV to AVI Converter is not a universal converter by any means, but it makes up for it by giving you fast, awesome performance. This program speeds through the conversion process, even if you use high-resolution video. If AVI is your video format of choice, this program will make it easier to watch your favorite videos in your favorite format.
