Convert AVI to MPEG4 playable on a MP4 player; AVI to MPEG4 converter software.

AVI is a multimedia file format for storing sound and moving pictures in RIFF format developed by Microsoft. An AVI file can use different codecs and formats so there is no set format for an AVI file. This is very different from e.g. standard VCD video which sets a standard for resolution, bitrates, and codecs used.Files in AVI format can only be played using software able to recognize and decode the AVI format.

MPEG4, introduced in late 1998, is the designation for a group of audio and video coding standards and related technology agreed upon by the ISO/IEC Moving Picture Experts Group (MPEG). The primary uses for the MPEG-4 standard are web (streaming media) and CD distribution, conversational (videophone), and broadcast television. It is currently a focus of attention due to the fact that it enables high speed and stable video transmission even in heretofore difficult environments such as mobile communication.

What's the difference between AVI and MPEG4?

The "difference" is that AVI is a container. It's not a coder/decoder. AVI contains only information that describes how the data is included in file and how to decompress video and audio (which codec to use). MPEG4 - is a compressor. Video data can be compressed with MPEG-4. AVI can have any type of codec (or no codec even) for compression, CinePak, Indeo, Huffyuv, etc whilst a "MPEG4 'file'" specifically denotes any AVI file that uses an MPEG4 codec (i.e,, DivX).

For example:
AVI may have MPEG-4 as Video, and MP3 as Audio.
AVI may have Cinepak as Video, and WAV PCM as Audio.
