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

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.

Archos 704 Wifi - does not play AVI file until its full lentgh


I had the same issue.
The size of the AVI cannot exceed 1gb or the end of the movie will never play.

I had a movie that was 1,7gb. 2 hrs and 15 seconds.
The Archos recognized this as a 1.7gb file and 2:00:15 long.
As soon as the movie started, the time line bar at the bottom of the screen went from 2:00:15 to 1:10:25. Basically, it cut off the last 50 minutes of the movie.

I simply divide the movie into 1gb chunks.

I decrypt the DVD to the computer
Use Nero Recode to convert it to and MP4. Divide the movie into 1gb chunks and Maximize the Volume.
Use SUPER to convert it to an AVI / MPEG-4 / MP3.
Copy this to the Video folder of the Archos.

This is simply something that Archos does not want to admit is an issue. They want you to purchase the Cinema plugin.
