Convert AVI to MPEG
AVI to MPEG Converter converts AVI files to
MPEG. It's an easy-to-use and ALL-IN-ONE video and audio converter software.
The converter also converts media file to the major formats such as DivX, iPod touch, Creative ZEN, FLV, PSP, MOV, Archos, Apple TV,
etc. It could convert VCD to H.264, MXF to Xbox 360, MXF to PS3, DNXHD to WMV, MVI to AVI, VCD to iPod, and so on.
AVI to MPEG Converter supports batch conversion
that enables you convert bulk AVI files to MPEG at a time. The software is
full compatible with 32-bit and 64-bit editions Windows 10/8/7/Vista/XP/2000.
What is AVI?
Audio Video Interleave, known by its acronym AVI, is a multimedia container format
introduced by Microsoft in November 1992 as part of its Video for Windows technology.
AVI files can contain both audio and video data in a file container that allows
synchronous audio-with-video playback. Like the DVD video format, AVI files support
multiple streaming audio and video, although these features are seldom used. Most
AVI files also use the file format extensions developed by the Matrox OpenDML
group in February 1996. These files are supported by Microsoft, and are unofficially
called "AVI 2.0".
There is slight overhead when used with popular MPEG-4 codecs (Xvid and DivX,
for example), increasing file size more than necessary. The AVI container has
no native support for modern MPEG-4 features like B-Frames. Hacks are sometimes
used to enable modern MPEG-4 features and subtitles, however, this is the source
of playback incompatibilities.
What is MPEG?
The Moving Picture Experts Group (MPEG) was formed by the ISO to set standards
for audio and video compression and transmission. Its first meeting was in May
1988 in Ottawa, Canada. As of late 2005, MPEG has grown to include approximately
350 members per meeting from various industries, universities, and research institutions.
MPEG's official designation is ISO/IEC JTC1/SC29 WG11.
The MPEG standards consist of different Parts. Each part covers a certain aspect
of the whole specification. The standards also specify Profiles and Levels. Profiles
are intended to define a set of tools that are available, and Levels define the
range of appropriate values for the properties associated with them. MPEG has
standardized the following compression formats and ancillary standards:
- MPEG-1: The first compression standard for audio and video. It was
basically designed to allow moving pictures and sound to be encoded into the bitrate
of a Compact Disc. To meet the low bit requirement, MPEG-1 downsamples the images,
as well as uses picture rates of only 24-30 Hz, resulting in a moderate quality.
It includes the popular Layer 3 (MP3) audio compression format.
- MPEG-2: Transport, video and audio standards for broadcast-quality
television. MPEG-2 standard was considerably broader in scope and of wider appeal
- supporting interlacing and high definition. MPEG-2 is considered important because
it has been chosen as the compression scheme for over-the-air digital television
ATSC, DVB and ISDB, digital satellite TV services like Dish Network, digital cable
television signals, SVCD, and DVD.
- MPEG-3: Developments in standardizing scalable and multi-resolution
compression which would have become MPEG-3 were ready by the time MPEG-2 was to
be standardized; hence, these were incorporated into MPEG-2 and as a result there
is no MPEG-3 standard. MPEG-3 is not to be confused with MP3, which is MPEG-1
Audio Layer 3.
- MPEG-4: MPEG-4 uses further coding tools with additional complexity
to achieve higher compression factors than MPEG-2. In addition to more efficient
coding of video, MPEG-4 moves closer to computer graphics applications. In more
complex profiles, the MPEG-4 decoder effectively becomes a rendering processor
and the compressed bitstream describes three-dimensional shapes and surface texture.
MPEG-4 also provides Intellectual Property Management and Protection (IPMP) which
provides the facility to use proprietary technologies to manage and protect content
like digital rights management. Several new higher-efficiency video standards
(newer than MPEG-2 Video) are included (an alternative to MPEG-2 Video), notably:
- MPEG-4 Part 2 (or Simple and Advanced Simple Profile) and
- MPEG-4 AVC (or MPEG-4 Part 10 or H.264). MPEG-4 AVC may be used on
HD DVD and Blu-ray discs, along with VC-1 and MPEG-2.
In addition, the following standards, while not sequential advances to the
video encoding standard as with MPEG-1 through MPEG-4, are referred to by similar
- MPEG-7: A multimedia content description standard.
- MPEG-21: MPEG describes this standard as a multimedia framework.
Moreover, relatively more recently than other standards above, MPEG has started
following international standards; each of the standards holds multiple MPEG technologies
for a way of application. For example, MPEG-A includes a number of technologies
on multimedia application format.
- MPEG-A: Multimedia application format.
- MPEG-B: MPEG systems technologies.
- MPEG-C: MPEG video technologies.
- MPEG-D: MPEG audio technologies.
- MPEG-E: Multimedia Middleware.
