Step 1: Add Video Files
Install and run the HP Slate 7 Video Converter to your PC, click Add button to import your source videos: .avi, .mkv, .vob, .mpg… Batch conversion is supported so that you can add multiple files
Step 2: Select output format
Click on the dropdown menu of “Format” and then move your pointer to “Common Video” > H.264 Video(*.mp4), which is the proper choice.
Tip: Set output video quality
If you like, you can click “Settings” to change the video encoder, resolution, frame rate, etc. as you wish. According to my experience, the file size and video quality is based more on bitrate than resolution which means bitrate higher results in big file size, and lower visible quality loss, and vice versa.
