  • Thanks for the guide, but the converter you recommend is a shareware, you have to pay for it to get the full version, or else there will be a big watermark in the converted video. Actually, there are many online apps can do the video conversion for your, such as zamzar, Acethinker Video Converter, mediaconverter, etc. They are totally free, and you don't have to download or install anything.
