Sooner or later you will come across a file that will not play in a program or particular device you have and you will have to convert it to make it compatible to play. For example you cannot usually play an .avi video on a mobile phone. Therefore you could convert the video format from .avi or even dvd, to 3gp, 3gpp, or Mpeg 4 to suit your mobile phone.
Obviously to convert any video format to another video format you will need a very sophisticated program that could possibly be very expensive. Well not if you know about the free program called SUPER (Simplified Universal Player Encoder & Renderer). It is totally free and very simple to use. But don’t get me wrong, this program can perform very complicated tasks that not even the very costly video format converter programs can do.
