Convert AVI to MP4 with VLC Media Player

VLC Media Player is a free open-source media player. It not only allows you to play all kinds of video types but also allows you to convert a video to a different format. Many users have used it to convert their videos from other formats to MP4 without losing quality.

The software is totally free. If you don’t want to afford a converter software, you can try VLC Media Player. With the easy-to-use interface, you can use it to convert your video easily.

Here’s how to use VLC Media Player to convert AVI to MP4:

1) Download and install VLC Media Player on your Windows PC.

Note: During the installation, some plugins will be selected by default to be installed together with VLC Media Player. If you don’t want to install these plugins, you’ll need to deselect them manually.

2) Launch VLC Media Player.

3) Click Media -> Convert / Save…

4) Click the Add button and browse to the AVI file you want to convert.

5) Click the Convert / Save button.

6) Under Profile, select Video – H.265 + MP3 (MP4).

7) Under Destination, click the Browse button and choose a location to save the file, and then name the file.

8) Click the Start button. Then VLC will start converting your AVI file to MP4.

The converting time required depends on the file size. Please wait until the process is finished.

Once converted, try playing the file to ensure video and audio play correctly. If the video or audio doesn’t play correctly, it means VLC Media Player failed to convert your video. This happens sometimes.

If VLC Media Player doesn’t work for you, you can try Wonderfox HD Video Converter Factory Pro.
