AVI is a very popular video format and has been used anywhere like camcorders, websites, and phones etc. However, there is a big disadvantage for AVI files: they are too large to distribute or share. So sometimes, you may want to resize AVI files for smaller size. For example:

  • You record AVI videos with your camera. And they're too big to upload to YouTube. You want to resize them, so you can post them.
  • You have lots of AVI files. And they occupy too much space of your hard drive or portable devices. You want a smart AVI resize tool to help your release some spaces.

Under these circumstances, you can choose Wondershare Filmora, a powerful yet easy-to-use AVI resizer to let you change resolution, bitrate and frame rate for smaller size.

Normally, lowering video resolution is the most effective way to resize AVI for smaller size. So here, you just choose a smaller video resolution. Not compressed enough? Just select lower the bit rate and/or frame rate to get a smaller output file as well. When it's done, click the "Create" button again to export the new AVI file.
