Handbrake doesn't seem to handle AVI input files. I want to convert a bunch of old AVIs to M4Vs to warehouse them in my iTunes library.

Any great free converters out there? I was surprised that quick Google and MR searches didn't turn one up right away.

Thanks in advance

Handbrake certainly does!

Me bad. I'll go back and try again. Looking at their page, I thought it just said it used the DVD ripped format as input.

I also found MPEGStreamclip via Google (which pointed to an MR thread) immediately after I posted here.

Oops!

Thank you!

Handbrake is easier, though MPEG Streamclip is much more versatile., but Handbrake offers working Apple TV and iPod presets that work in iTunes.

I have had really good luck with Handbrake converting avi to m4v.

Off topic, but I have had trouble converting the wrong setting m4v to say iPhone or iPod m4v files. Any tips on something like that?

I made an automator script to do this. In snow Leopard it is build right in as QuickTime can export to the right format.
