How to Convert AVI to DivX using DivX Video Converter How to Convert AVI to DivX using DivX Video Converter

If you watch videos in high-quality on a regular basis, you are most likely to know what DivX files are. If not, DivX is both a video format and a container used for storing high-quality video data in a small file, as it applies a very efficient compression system. Not only that, but DivX files can also contain multiple audio tracks and subtitles and can be played on personal computer and various electronic devices (mobile phones, gaming consoles, smart TVs, etc.). If you want to create high-definition DivX files, then you can simply convert standard AVI videos (AVI is the most popular format for storing video files) to DivX format.

For demonstrating the conversion process, I will be using  DivX Video Converter 10.2 (Freeware) designed by DivX, LLC, because it is a powerful and great-looking application that will help you create HD DivX videos from AVI files in a very simple manner. It can also help you save time by converting multiple files at the same time (batch conversion).

This application is a part of the DivX suite. If you want to install only the converter, then make sure you uncheck the other programs (local and web player, and plug-in). Also, you should pay extra attention during the installation, as it will ask you if you want to install additional software (adware). In addition, even if the application is free to use, the plug-ins used by the converter are shareware (15-day trial).
