Converting your videos to mobile friendly versions

I would just like to share this free application that I've been using for a long time to convert my videos to be playable on my windows mobile device, specifically, the TCMP player which could play DivX videos. Before the built in DivX player on the Samsung Omnia, windows mobile users have to use the free TCMP to play DivX videos. The problem is converting DivX videos since playing a regular 400 x 800 video on windows mobile device would lead to a lot of buffering.

Enter AlltoAvi video converter. I have a bunch of anime videos that I wanted to play on my winmo device (these files have an .ogg extension) so I wanted to convert them to a more mobile friendly version. That's when I came upon AlltoAvi. This freeware actually converts videos pretty fast and does not take a lot out of your system resources.

The problem is that you can only get .avi output and not 3gp, or a realplayer compatible format. If you have a Symbian device, you need a software that can play .avi videos. There are a bunch of videos I've rented at some Online DVD rental website which I've been converting nonstop so I can watch it since I've an upcoming roadtrip which I'm pretty sure will bore me to death. A regular movie usually takes around 5 to 8 minutes to convert.

Anyways, you can also try to use AlltoAvi for converting your videos into a more YouTube friendly file size. You can also use this to convert your videos so it would be compatible with your portable media players. Some of the divx videos I've converted played on some ONDA MP4 players.
