How to Convert an SCR File to AVI

By Ramya Hariharan

The SCR format files are screensaver files. The screensaver is a moving picture that appears on the computer screen if the computer is not being used for a while. These are nothing but animated pictures. The SCR files cannot be played in certain players and devices, so you need to convert these animations to a video format like AVI to play them in normal media players and devices.
