Why convert AVI to MOV (QuickTime supported format)?
Maybe you have a ton of AVI files on your hard drive, either from a digicam, or downloaded from the internet. Maybe you want to edit AVI in iMovie, or play these files on your iPad, iPod or iPhone, etc. Apple, unfortunately only plays a couple types of seldom-used AVI file: "Motion JPEG (M-JPEG) up to 35 Mbps, 1280 by 720 pixels, 30 frames per second, audio in ULAW, PCM stereo audio in .avi file format". But if your AVI files are the much more common AVI file type, encoded with a codec that QuickTime can't recognize, like DivX, XviD, you'll need to convert AVI to MOV or other iOS and Mac OS compatible formats.
