.avi to .mp4/.mpeg


Recommended Posts

Can anyone point me in the direction of some decent, free .avi to .mpeg convertors for osx (ppc) ?

The reason I ask is I have 600+mb .avi video that I'd like to watch on my tv via my 360 and connect360; but the 360 doesnt like .avi files.

I know i could just burn a disc or whatnot but i'd prefer to stream it via connect360, as it (theoretically) means less messing about.

cheers.

Try FFMpegX - http://homepage.mac.com/major4/

It's a shame that TMPGEnc 4.0 XPress is not made for OS X - very nice app which I use on Windows.

but it isn't free

The trial version is fully functional excepted for the "SVCD>DVD" and "DVD>DVD4GB" tools, and is not time-limited.

So he should be able to do what he's requesting.

Fantastic, that did the job brilliantly - thanks a lot.

it took almost three and a half hours to convert, mind..

it's not free, but fast as hell, and doesn't re-encode (no loss of quality, no bigger filesize surprises)

Quicktime Pro! :)

and well... playing those files requires your system to actually be compatible to that codec.
