If you've been looking for a way to convert your MOD files to AVI files on your PC to edit using Microsoft Movie Maker, this is the solution.

I've been playing with Youtube Videos and SEO for video's with some success. The issue comes from trying to convert video to the proper format for manipulation in Movie Maker.

If you're like me and have been struggling with the .MOD files output from some camcorders like the JVC Everio or Panasonic, I finally found the answer.

I've tried everything from SDcopy (link opens download, just save to your PC) which is a nice batch tool that converts the files from MOD to MPG which you can do manually by just renaming the file but when you have dozens and dozens of them it's a chore.

What I do now is import the MOD files as a batch folder into Aura Free Video Converter. I am not affiliated with them at all and it is completely free (no watermarks, no trial) so after going through such trouble finding this little gem figured I let everyone know about it.

You can specify a batch folder from your SD card, your hard drive or network drive and you can specify any number of output file types as well as the folder on your PC where you want the converted files to go.

I use standard AVI and drag them right into Movie Maker.
