Avi format was popular online and offline and also it is playable in many devices and players. But the problem is avi file is too big, and it occupies a lot of space on hard drive. My question is, How to shrink avi files to have more space in the hard drive of my Mac? Can anyone suggest me detailed info how to shrink avi files?
Shrinking avi file sizes Mac
Hi Jozy Marry,
AVI format will use a lot of memory for storage. The best way to tackle this problem is by converting it into some another format.
By converting it into AVI itself will degrade its quality. The best option to shrink the size by maintaining the quality is by converting it into .mkv format.
And for this process, I recommend Total video converter. It is a widely used paid application and it offers a lot of features as well as supports a lot of file format conversion. You can download the software here
After installation, you need to select the AVI file and then under Video tab, select MKV and then Start converting.
This will convert your video into a small size file with the same quality.
Hope it helps.
