Solid AVI to MP4 Video Converter is a nice video converter. It is very simple and it has a very plain graphical user interface, but it is also intuitive and it works very well. The converter allows you to convert AVI files into MP4 (MPEG-4) files so that you can play those on mobile video playback devices such as iPods, iPhones, gaming consoles, and devices like the AppleTV. The application uses conversion profiles to let you easily pick a format and optimized conversion settings. There are quite a few, including some for iPods and AppleTV. You can also pick standard MPEG-4 profiles, which will also play on most other devices.
This app's graphical user interface is very nice. It doesn't have any unnecessary features and a lot of thought and attention were involved in its creation. I like the fact that the app knows what you might be looking for in all the stages of the conversion process. For example, when you start converting a file, a new window will pop-up and you can tell the app to shut down your computer when it is done. When the conversion is done, you can open the output folder to watch your files.
All in all, this might not have the best feature-set in the video converter market, but it works well and it is very easy to use.
- Good design
