The Pazera Free MP4 to AVI Converter is a software application for converting your MP4 videos to AVI format.
This is a very basic and simple-looking video converter. The program is light on features, because it has one main purpose, which is converting videos to AVI format. The conversion process time varies from one job to another. You should expect it to take about twice as much time as the length of the video being converted if it's longer than a few minutes.
Even if you're not very familiar with computers, it should be pretty easy to start using this program, though you might not understand some of the default settings it has. Audio Codec, Bitrate and Sampling Frequency are among the settings options that will most likely be unfamiliar to a novice user. There are Advanced settings for those who know more about videos and computers, but a novice user can go without changing anything and still manage to get the program to work. The Help page can take you to the publisher's Web site, but you won't find any tutorial there. They do list the most important features, but that's it. If you're a novice user who wants to learn more about the program, you might not find enough information.
It was fast and easy to download and install Pazera. There were a few extra download offers, but it's not required to download anything except Pazera in order to have it work.
The program has a number of predefined settings (profiles) specially designed for novice users. While more advanced users can customize video and audio encoding parameters used by encoder: audio and video codec, audio and video bitrate, fps, sampling frequency, resolution, volume and other. The application interface is a very simple and user-friendly. To convert video files, just drag & drop them into main window and click Convert button on the toolbar.
At default settings, the application converts files using Xvid video encoder and MP3 audio encoder, and automatically selects all the encoding parameters so as to preserve the original video and audio quality. Most portable and fixed players should have no problems playing AVI files created with these settings.
