Convert video file format

As there are hundreds of combinations of video file formats and codecs, there may be times when your video is not in the correct format to be uploaded to the website. Converting the video into a more recognised format will allow the video to be uploaded to the website and, in most cases, the size of the video will also be reduced, meaning it will take less time for the video to upload to the website.

There are many different software packages available to download and install which will allow you to convert videos from one format to another. One of the easiest software packages is ‘Any Video Converter’ which can be downloaded and installed for free.

Once you have downloaded and installed the software, open it up and you will see the main welcome screen (see below).

You will now be asked to browse your computer to find the video that you wish to convert into a different format. Once you have found the video you wish to convert, select it and click on ‘Open’ (see below).

The video will now be added to the list of videos to be converted. Next, you will need to choose the format the video will be converted to. Click on the large button in the top right corner of the window. You will then be shown a list of formats the file can be converted into. We recommend that you select ‘DVD video PAL (*.mpg)’ from the drop down list (see below).
