You got new Samsung Galaxy S4 android phone. You may want to play HD videos e.g. AVI on your Galaxy S4. While, you may find that Galaxy S4 can’t recognize all the AVI files due to the different video codecs contained by AVI. As far as I know you can play DivX .avi on Galaxy S4 easily, but not the XviD .avi movies.
Well, it is yet easy to get AVI onto Samsung Galaxy S4 as long as you change AVI to Galaxy S4 most compatible file format like H.264 MP4. Below is the full guide:
First of, download aPubsoft Video Converter Mac app. Overall, the program can be used as an all-in-one video conversion app for Galaxy phones and tablets. With it, you can easily transcode AVI to MP4 videos for Galaxy S4 on Mac OS X(Include Lion and Mountain Lion) with high quality and fast encoding speed. Besides AVI, it can also help you transfer almost all 1080p/720p videos including MKV, VOB, MPG, MOV, TiVo, MTS etc. for Galaxy S4, Galaxy Tab 2 10.1/7.0, Galaxy Note 2/3, Galaxy S3, Nexus 7 and other Android tablets, ensuring smooth and HD playback.
How to Convert AVI videos to Samsung Galaxy S4 video formats on Mac
Step 1: Add AVI Video Files
Install and run the Mac Galaxy S4 Video Converter, clic “Add Video” or “Add from folder” to import your source AVI videos. Batch conversion is supported so that you can add multiple files.
Step 2: Select output format
Choose output profile for Galaxy S4. Here I recommend you “Android > Samsung Galaxy S II Video (*.mp4)” which is a format specially designed for Galaxy S2 but also works for the S4.
If you like, you can click on Settings you could easily set bitrate, frame rate, codec, channels, sample rate, etc to adjust parameters that affect video quality and file size for the video you prefer. Keep in mind that bit rate higher results in big file size, and lower visible quality loss, and vice versa.
Step 3. Start encoding AVI
Finally, go back to the main interface and click the “Convert” button to start converting AVI for playing on Galaxy S4.
Once the process completes, just click “Open” to find the Galaxy S4 playable MP4 videos after the conversion and transfer them to your Samsung S4 device with ease and verve.
