“Hi, there all, does anyone know a good AVI to MP4 converter that would allow me to convert some movies and episodes from .avi to .mp4 on my MacBook Air with acceptable quality. I’ve tried a lot of free ones out there, but got files with terrible quality while viewing on my iPad mini and iPhone 6 plus, which was very frustrating. Can anyone kindly recommend what’s the best .avi to .mp4 converter for Mac? Any suggestion and help are greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.”

In our experience, not all portable players and editing program can get along well with all file formats. That’s the reason people sometimes need to convert AVI files to MP4 format, a widely used and accepted file type fitting for different uses. Actually, there are a lot of options out there claimed to have the ability to transcode AVI files to MP4 with excellent quality, but some of them couldn’t work as they claimed to be. If you don’t want to come upon video and audio out of sync issues, artifacts issues, bad picture quality issues and something similar, you can give Video Converter a shot, it is not free but it totally worth it.
