You have basically two options if you want to convert a video from one format into another. You can either use software programs that run on the computer system to convert the videos or use online converters to do the same. Both methods have their limitations and uses. The desktop video converter can for example handle files of any size (limited usually by the file system) while online converters limit the file size due to their nature. This usually means that it is not possible to upload files that are several hundred Megabytes to an online video converter. The online video converters on the other hand can sometimes access videos that are posted on other websites directly. They also have the advantage that they do not have to be installed but can be used from any modern web browser.

The free video converter Movavi Online Convert is an excellent tool to convert videos on the Internet. It can convert files that are uploaded from the local computer system but also videos that are already stored on the Internet.

Up to five videos that do not exceed a total size of 100 Megabytes and an individual playtime of 10 minutes can either be uploaded or entered with their url in the online video converter. A multitude of different output formats is available including avi and mpeg but also specific formats for devices such as iPods, iPhones or mobile phones.

The advanced options provide the means to customize the conversion further. It is for example possible to change the output width and height of the video or to change the video and audio quality.

A click on the start button will initiate the upload of the videos if they have been selected from the local system. Users can check the merge checkbox if they want to merge all the selected videos in one larger video.

The videos will be added to the program queue. At the time of writing the queue number was at 932. That's a long time to wait. It is fortunately possible to add an email address to be informed when the video conversion has been finished. The queue window can be closed if an email address is supplied.

Movavi's online video converter is a comfortable online tool that makes it dead easy to convert videos on the Internet.

    I will still prefer an offline version of converting application. It will take a lot of time to first upload and then download it. Plus most of the Email clients comes with a recieving limit like with Gmail of 25 MB.

    I keep a SWF file on hand to use as a test for online video conversion as well as free and paid software. I’ve yet to find a reliable method to convert this file type. This site soundly rejected the file type as unsupported. I’d certainly appreciate feedback from anyone who is aware of a program that handles conversion of this file type more often than not.
