These days lots of Internet Service Providers have restrictions on their plans on how much you can download and or have time usage restrictions depending in which part of the world you live.


This can chew up your internet data usage, and at the end of the month you could have high Internet Bills. 

Here in Australia we have download restrictions, every time that I would stream a video, it would take up bandwidth which chewed up my data allowance for the month. 

So instead of streaming video to save my Internet data usage, I usually download a movie or TV show directly to my computer, so that I could view it offline.

Then I often would convert a video and upload it to my android tablet or smartphone to watch a TV show or movie on the way to work.

All this took time, and I wanted a simple, one click solution to convert and upload the video to a device such as my Samsung Galaxy S4.  I finally came across a product called AVS Video converter.  This has to be one of the best ways to convert video on the market today.  It is really quick and simple to use.
