How to Convert AVI Video on a Mac
If you are a Windows user, please refer to the tutorial on using Movavi Video Converter for Windows.
AVI is probably the most widely used format in the world of multimedia today. However, even this popular format is not universally supported. For example, AVIs are not supported on Apple mobile devices. So, if you want to sync your AVI videos with your iPod Touch, iPad, or iPhone, you first need to convert the AVI files to MP4, M4V, or MOV to ensure compatibility with iOS devices, Mac OS desktop computers and MacBooks. Fortunately, all you need to get this done is Movavi Video Converter for Mac – an intuitive and powerful encoding program that enables you to convert HD, MKV, or MTS formats as well as FLV, MPEG, WMV, and DVD VOB files to MPEG-4, QuickTime (MOV), as well as to many other popular formats.
Download Movavi Video Converter now to convert AVI files for use in Mac and iOS environments in just four easy steps.
This guide is for the previous version of Movavi Video Converter. The information will be updated in the near future. You can download the latest version of the app here.
Step 1: Install Movavi’s AVI Converter for Mac
When you’ve downloaded the file, run it and follow the usual Mac OS instructions to install the software.
Step 2: Add the AVI Files You Want to Convert
To add one or more files for conversion, click the Add Video button in the upper left-hand corner of the window.
Step 3: Specify the Output Format
To choose the output format, open the Convert to list, where you will find a list of popular presets. If you don’t see the format you want on this list, you can click either Video and audio or Devices.
If you intend to watch the converted video on an iPad, iPhone, Android tablet, or other multimedia device, click Devices. Then select the appropriate preset from the list of brands and models.
If you just want to convert AVI into MP4, 3GP, FLV, or other formats for viewing on your computer, select Video and audio and choose the appropriate format from the list. To access the advanced output format settings, where you can change video height and width, choose a sample rate, and adjust other parameters, click the Settings button to the right of the Convert to list.
Step 4: Start Converting
Before you start converting, you may want to set a new destination folder. By default, converted files are saved to your Movavi Library, but you can either click Browse to specify a new folder for the converted files, or select The output folder is the same as input to save the converted files alongside the original videos. Then click Convert in the bottom right corner to start the conversion process. Your file will be converted in just a few minutes.
