Start MOV to AVI conversion
Conversion is started with clicking on the "Convert” button that you can find in the bottom right corner of the settings panel. It’s possible to convert several files simultaneously by adding each new file to the queue (“Add to queue” button in the bottom right) after setting the desired configurations. If you added a wrong file by mistake, press a tiny recycle bin icon next to this file to delete it from the queue. Large “Clear queue” button in the bottom left will allow you to delete all the files from the queue.
When you are ready to start, just press the “Convert” button and wait until the program processes your files. You can use the “Pause/Resume” and “Cancel” buttons next to the progress bar in the bottom of the program window to manage the process.
When the converting of MOV to AVI is completed, you’ll see a popup window with a report message and “Open folder” button. Click on it to check the output files in a containing folder. After that, you can close the program or start a new conversion session.
