Tip & How-To about Cell Phones
Q: I have a collection of Anime, movie, etc. and then I have an iPhone. Most of the anime and movie are in Avi format, now I’m wondering if and how I can convert these avi videos to Mp4 for playback on my iPhone? (By the way, I have a pc running on Windows 7), Thanks!
A: If you have an iPhone, you may have encountered the same problem. You have bunch of movies which you have downloaded from internet, and you want to pull out your iPhone to watch a few clips when you’re bored on the road or if you have extra time between classes. While your iPhone only accepts videos in MP4 or MOV format, but most of your downloaded movies are in AVI format. And that is the question- how to put downloaded movies in AVI format to your iPhone so you can enjoy them on the go? Basically, it is not difficult to make it. What you have to do is to convert avi file to mp4 for playback on your iPhone.
Things You'll Need
Downloaded movies or videos in AVI format
AVI to MP4 Converter
A PC running on Windows OS (including Windows7 OS)
A PC running on Windows OS (including the latest Windows7)
For those windows users, there are various AVI to MP4 converters, both free and paid, such as free Handbreak, but for windows 7 users, like me, the only one I had a good luck is Wondershare DVD Converter Ultimate, which is handy for converting AVI to MP4 files and transferring these AVI files for iPhone. Now, let’s check out it together.
Steps to convert AVI to MP4 on windows 7 for your iPhone:
Step 1: Free download this Wondershare DVD Converter Ultimate, install and run it.
Step 2: Add AVI files
Loading AVI movies will be your first step. Click "Add Video" or just drag & drop your AVI files to the file list directly, you can easily add AVI files.
Step 3: Select MP4 as output format
Select iPhone video MP4 as output format from the categorized output formats list in "Profile" drop-down list and specify the output directory to save your converted files in "Output" drop-down list.
Step 4: Start to convert AVI to MP4 file
After you select MP4 format, hit the Start button to convert AVI to MP4 files. And all the tasks will be done at fast speed and high quality.
Step 5: Transfer MP4 files to iPhone
The last step is to transfer converted MP4 files to iPhone. Of course, you can use iTunes which is free but it only provides one way solution to transfer files from PC to iPhone. There is another option if you still want to get your iPhone files back to PC, you can use an http://www.dvd-ripper-copy.com/ipod-video-transfer.htmlhttp://www.dvd-ripper-copy.com/ipod-video-transfer.html, (it's not free with only $19.95) which can transfer files between iPhone and PC freely.
