I know a lot of people use Windows Movie Maker or IMovie to make movies for entertainment. Stupid programs (at least windows movie maker) save the file as a unaccepted file in many sites like YouTube. Now, AVS is a good converter. You trolls out there wouldn't say. SUPER is a bad converter. It is too confusing. AVS is specaial because it leaves a "watermark". A very bold "watermark". So bold, the word "watermark" deserves quotes. Anyways, AVS will accept any file i have used. And I've used some pretty exotic files like .nes. Um, i forgot to mention that AVS only leaves a "watermark" with the unregistered version. The difference is...oh, damnit, simple answer is you have to pay for no water mark. This guide will help you with this process. Go along...

Step 1: What You Should Do Before Hand.

After you have made your file in your program, figure out how to add anything you want at the beginning that lasts for 1 minute. I do a little over 1 minute, just to be safe. It can be anything. I do a Chuck Norris approves image, so i can leave it in the file for a couple of seconds.=) Why? Because the watermark only lasts one minute. Afterward, it's watermark free. Get what I'm doing?

Step 2: Converting.

With AVS, you open it up, click "browse" next to the input file name bar, and select your file. On the top bar, select your output file type. I recommend .AVI or MP4. Then click "start". This will take up to a hour. You should just go watch some Mythbusters while you're waiting. =)

Step 3: Bring It Back.

Okay, you just converted your file. It is now a SEPERATE file from your unconverted file. Open it up in your video editing program. This time, ERASE the other thing at the beginning that was one minute long. Save.

Step 4: TA-DA!

Yay! Your file is now accepted by YouTube! Now wait for it to upload.=(
<p>4Videosoft Video Converter is what I started using after AVS Video Converter started crashing on just about every MKV file I fed it. It eats just about everything I give it and has 100's of output options. AVS4YOU support is such a joke, they want you to send you the file you are working on when you have a problem, and I have seen lots of people's Emails with the same answer. Who can send a 15 gig file to support? They know you won't do it and they know what's going on. The program just can't do the job. AVS Video Converter is history for me.</p>
