Leawo AVI Converter is a free and attractive tool that transforms almost any video file you can think of into AVI using the XviD codec. It supports nearly all possible video files out there – FLV, WMV, MOV, MP4, MPEG, VOB, or AAC, just to name a few. Besides, it can extract the audio stream from any of these files, and save it in MP3, WAV, WMA, and other formats.
With this free and versatile conversion tool you will be able to create a variety of AVI files, customized according to the use you will make of them or the player you will be using. Thus, you can save your videos as uncompressed AVI (more suitable for video editing), as a standard XviD file with DVD quality, as an optimized version for iRiver or Archos players, or as an H.263-based AVI file to be enjoyed in your mobile phone. You can then apply simple audio- and video-quality presets to all the different conversions available.
The program offers you some other useful tools, like a neat video editing utility or a series of advanced settings to fine-tune the quality of both audio and video, but to be able to use those you will need to upgrade to the Pro version of Leawo AVI Converter.
