Easy to understand converters

When you know nothing about video conversion and just want a functional tool, you may feel vulnerable in choosing a converter. Many possibilities, many advantages and disadvantages for each program ...

The choice must be made mainly based on the format of your files. If it's just to make it readable on any PC (by encoding for example AVI, MPG or WMV), all are valid. What will give the advantage to one over the other will obviously be its usability. Having a nice color converter is good. Studying it 2 hours to understand how it works is not good.

The two points to look for are the following: the program must be translated into Spanish (to understand everything that happens on the screen) e it must have an ergonomic or even a friendly interface.
