Digital Media Converter 4.2

Configure AVI Properties

Audio Video Interleaved (AVI) is a general purpose video file format used in some video cameras and editing software.  A wide range of codec's are supported that control how the videos are saved.  These codec's affect the size and the quality of the output video.

The best suited properties are configured:

Video Properties

DivX 3(MS-MPEG-4 V3 Codec) compresses lengthy video segments into small sizes while maintaining relatively high visual quality.

The frame rate is set to 25 fps and bit rate to 1500 Kbps.  Check Keep Video Properties same as original to retain the original video properties, for the converted files.

Audio Properties

When compressed with MP3 compressor, the media files play on almost all portable audio players.  You can change the compressor from the drop-down menu.  The frequency is set to 44100Hz and bitrate to 128 Kbps.  The Stereo audio channel creates an impression of sound heard from various directions.

Configuring DV-AVI Properties

DV-AVI is a type of Audio Video Interleaved (AVI) file where the video has been compressed to conform to Digital Video (DV) standards.  Movies made in the DV-AVI format can be exported to a Digital video camera attached to your PC.

There are two types of DV-AVI files.  In Type 1, the interleaved data is stored as one stream in the AVI file.  The interleaved data is split into separate audio and video streams in Type 2.  For videos, where maximum throughput is crucial, it is better to use a Type 1 file, because Type 2 files carry redundant audio data.  On the other hand, the application must extract the audio from the interleaved stream, make the edits, and interleave the data again in case of Type 1.

Out of these types, Type 2 is selected for you.  The frame rate is set to 30 fps, and the bit-rate is high.
