easy to use software to turn MP4 into Avi ( anybody knows?)

Postby 20centuryboy » Tue Oct 11, 2011 8:48 am

Does anybody could point me a good software to turn mp4 into avi? I have tried many but didn't find anything that pleased me. The easiest soft I've found yet was Pazera but it change the shape of the screen from 16/9 to square and I couldn't find a way to get the right shape back.

I watch dramas on my Apple tv but it doesn't like the mp4+ softsubs, so from now I guess I'll have to reencode everything or get hardsubbed ( but it seems like almost nobody harsub anymore)

Windows or mac it will be fine.

Thanx.

I don't use Pazera but I looked at the interface and it seems you should go to "Advance Settings" and change the "resolution" to "100%" instead of leaving the default "Auto" Did you try that?

BTW, I use MediaCoder (Freeware) but since its default output is mp4, you'll need to go in and change the video output to avi. I'm not sure how easy it's for you but you can try since it's free :)

I would have recommended Handbrake, but it dropped support for XviD in the latest version. Also PSP4XVID, but the website require you to install Microsoft Silverlight to access it. So instead I would go with either Dr. DivX or AVI ReComp.
Please do not PM me about seeding any of my old torrents, as most of files that had uploaded are no longer on my computer.

Hello Friends !!!! Dear I used software which is suppsed to convert AVI or MP4 files into DVD format. I burned a copy onto a DVD but it turned out to be just a Data disk. So now how do I burn it so that it will just open and play automatically in a DVD player?

flake,

Burning an MPEG-2 file directly to disk won't work. You need the proper VIDEO_TS folder and file structure as well.

If you use Windows, then Muxman will help you do that:

I use Freemake Video Converter to convert mp4's into avi's so I can then hardsub the subtitles with VirtualDub. I tried using the "add subtitles" option in Freemake but it didn't always encode every line from the softsub files.
BTW, I do this because i like to play the avi's on a dvd player which can play avi's/divx's but not with softsub files.
