The most common way to convert AVI to VCD is to use a video file converter program that will allow you to make the conversion. These programs are available from a number of software developers and can be free to download and use or may require a licensing fee. Some of these programs will also provide a number of other features along with file conversion, such as compression, editing, and burning the resulting file onto a disc. The program you choose to convert AVI to VCD will typically depend a great deal on what features you need from the program and how many files you need to convert.
An AVI file is a computer file type that typically includes video and audio data, usually for playback in a media player program. VCD files are similar, except they are specifically designed to also be burned onto a video compact disc (VCD) for playback on digital versatile disc (DVD) players and similar devices. If you wish to convert AVI to VCD, then you will typically need to download a program that will let you make this conversion. There are a number of different video converter programs available, and you should be sure any program you are considering includes AVI to VCD conversion.
The program you choose to use for conversion should meet your needs and fit your budget as well. If you only want to convert a few files and do not wish to make any changes to those files, for example, then a simple freeware converter will likely be sufficient. Such programs can often be downloaded from a number of different websites, though you should be sure to download only from trustworthy and reliable websites to better avoid malicious software. More complex programs that allow you to convert AVI to VCD may need to be purchased or require a license fee to use.
These programs will often allow you to convert large numbers of files more easily, and free programs could place a watermark on the converted file, while more expensive programs typically do not. Some AVI to VCD converter programs will also allow you to make other changes to the file as you perform the conversion. This can include the ability to edit the file by combining multiple AVIs into a single VCD file or to convert a single AVI into several smaller VCDs. Some AVI to VCD converters will also allow you to burn the converted file to a VCD or DVD, and such features can make a single program more useful for multiple projects.
