Although the AVI video format often affords a high-quality picture, the files can be rather large. If you are planning to post videos on the Internet or share them electronically, it would be best to convert the AVI files to MPEGs, which are compressed video files. Several free or inexpensive converters are available, including AVI to MPEG, AVI to MPEG Converter, EZ AVI to MPEG Converter and AVS Video Converter.
