    Free mp4->avi converter?
    This question probably gets asked all the time, but I still have no solution.
    I'm not really looking for a mp4->avi converter specifically but rather a converter with a large range of available conversions.
    And because I'm a poor college student.. I would prefer it to be free

    Handbrake is what you're looking for:

    Liquid and computers don't mix. It might seem simple, but we see an incredible amount of people post here about spills. Keep drinks and other liquids away from your expensive electronics!

    Handbrake no longer will create AVI's tho so if the OP does really want to go from mo4->avi it won't work .

    Quoting from Handbrakes main page:

    AVI: AVI is a rough beast. It is obsolete. It does not support modern container features like chapters, muxed-in subtitles, variable framerate video, or out of order frame display. Furthermore, HandBrake's AVI muxer is vanilla AVI 1.0 that doesn't even support large files. The code has not been actively maintained since 2005. Keeping it in the library while implementing new features means a very convoluted data pipeline, full of conditionals that make the code more difficult to read and maintain, and make output harder to predict. As such, it is now gone. It is not coming back, and good riddance.
    ffmpegx as was suggested by Kevriano, MPegStreamClip which can be obtained here: Squared 5 - MPEG Streamclip video converter for Mac and Windows or you can try videomonkey ( Video Monkey ), or you can try EVom (which is more geared for pulling video off the net and converting, but will transcode) Evom - Convert and Download Videos to iTunes
