Top 5 Free WMV to AVI Converter

by Brian Fisher Proven solutions

Want to convert WMV to AVI free? Keep reading this post. Most video and audio lovers certainly know the WMV (Windows Media Video) format. It’s a file format for Windows computers that contains video, image, audio, and sometimes text data. But Mac users have nothing to smile about in this case because Mac doesn’t support the direct opening of WMV format. Therefore, you must convert WMV to a Mac-supported format like AVI, MOV, or MP4. Today, we’ll be discussing the best free WMV to AVI converter tools to help you solve this puzzle.


Part 1. Free WMV to AVI Converter with Reviews

Everybody loves freebies, especially when it’s a powerful conversion software. Well, it’s now possible to convert WMV videos to AVI format without necessarily installing anything on your computer. Some of them even offer file editing services that you can only find in dedicated desktop apps such as UniConverter.

Zamzar

Talk of a free online converter that can convert WMV to AVI easily and Zamzar immediately comes to mind. It offers more than 1,200 conversion units on its clean and ad-free interface. You can convert WMV to FLV, VOB, AVI, MP4, MOV, 3GP, and many other typical video formats. Also, Zamzar facilitates audio extraction from video files and vice-versa. If you’re looking to send the data to a friend, just enter their email address before conversion and Zamzar sends them a download link. Just remember that Zamzar doesn’t offer any file editing options. Also, the maximum upload memory is 150MB.

Pros and Cons:

+

        Simple and straightforward interface

    +

          Provides super-fast conversion

      -

            No file editor

        -

            150 upload size only
        Online UniConverter

        Giving Zamzar a run for its money is another great conversion site – Online UniConverter (Originally Media.io). It’s also a free platform that won’t slow you down with some useless ads. Here, you can convert WMV to AVI, MOV, MP4, MKV, and many other formats. Even more, Online UniConverter comes with an image/audio/video compressor. But just like Zamzar, this service doesn’t offer a file editor. Also, the maximum size you can convert on any given day is 100MB. But before you dismiss it, remember that it’s a free service.

        Pros and Cons:

        +

              Sleek and well-designed UI

          +

                Supports most audio/image/video formats

            -

                  No inbuilt video editor

              -

                  Limited upload size
              ConvetFiles

              ConvetFiles certainly beats the first two options because it offers an impressive 250MB free upload size. But apart from that, they are quite evenly matched in terms of the available input and output formats. Better still, ConvertFiles offers to send you a download link of your converted files to an email address. It’s also worth mentioning that ConvertFiles doesn’t provide video editing services, just like Zamzar and Online UniConverter. But again, it is a freeware!

              Pros and Cons:

              +

                    Super-fast conversion speeds

                +

                      A plethora of input/output formats

                  -

                        Zero file editing service

                    -

                        Requires a reliable internet connection
                    zamzar

                    The last web-based WMV to AVI converter on this list is the Online Converter, which offers plenty of conversion formats. Impressively, users can convert units like time zone, speed, currency, etc. Audio, video, document, ebook, and image conversion is also available. It’s also fast and offers an improved 400MB maximum upload size. On the flip side, Online Converter doesn’t allow device-optimized conversions on its ad-laden interface. But that aside, it still ranks among the best sites to convert any file format.

                    Pros and Cons:

                    +

                          Offers plenty of formats

                      +

                            Allows file editing

                        -

                              Ad-laden UI

                          -

                              -
