Video converter

Postby meathead1 » Wed May 16, 2012 2:32 pm

Anybody have a good one that they can reccommend (preferably free)? Trying to convert some movies from AVI (Playbook doesn't support that format) to MP4 so I can watch them on my Playbook on paid duties. Tried a couple, no good.

VLC can do it. I do it for my PlayBook. It can look a little daunting at first, but shoot me a PM if you need help with the settings. :)

They have a handbrake version for Windows, it is the best choice.
