I have some MPEG-2 video clips that have been edited using Pinnacle Studio 9, and I need to convert them to a format suitable for tablets. I have been advised to go for AVI.
The point is that when I try "Make Movie" in Studio 9, and select AVI:
the options given are limited, and the quality of the converted videos is much lower than the original (a huge reduction in quality).
Could someone kindly advise me on this: is AVI better than MP4 for tablets?
And, if AVI is the right choice, what would be the best settings.
The MPEG-2 Files (converted from DVD's VOB files using ffmpeg) have the following values:
size 720 x 576 (3/4)
frame rate: 25
bit rate: 4000 kbps (variable)
MPEG Layer II
Bit Rate: 192 kbps
Sample Rate: 48 KHz
In Studio 9, when selecting AVI, the values given are:-
Compression: PICVideo MJPEG Compressor
Channels: 16-bit stereo
Sample Rate: 48kHz
Thank you in advance,

Or just get VLC media player for your android or ios tablets. It can play most formats directly.
But if you want to shrink then convert to MP4/M4V (with h264 video and aac audio) using for example handbrake, vidcoder, xmedia recode. No annoying adware like the freestudio installation...
Don't use any avi format.
Many thanks for the information.
I will try these now.
