Both AVI and AMV files are video files. AVI files are primarily played on computers and are large in size. AMV files are smaller files that are designed for play on MP4 players. In order to convert an AVI file to AMV format online, an online conversion tool must be used. SitePoint, which is a website for Web developers and designers, has a list of 17 online file conversion services. Of those 17 online file conversion websites, only one of them is capable of doing the AVI to AMV file conversion.
Visit the Media-Convert website. As of August 2010, it is the only online file conversion website that does AVI to AMV conversion.
Add your AVI file by selecting it in the first field. Only one AVI file can be converted at a time with Media-Convert.
Scroll down to the “Output Format” line, which has two drop-down menus by it. Leave the first one as is and select AMV from the second drop-down menu.
Click on the “OK” button that is to the right of the “Output Format” line. Media-Convert will do the conversion while you wait. The screen auto-refreshes until the conversion is complete. Then a download link for the new file will appear on your screen. Click on it to download the new AMV file to your computer.
