I wish to convert this .avi to .m4v ....

Hey guys,

I've got this AVI, and well I'm trying to convert it to .m4v but when I open it from Quicktime it says:

The document “TNA IMPACT 28.01.2010.avi” could not be opened. The movie is not in a format that QuickTime Player understands.

Thats how I usually convert the files to iPhone (m4v) format.

I even tried using Roxio Popcorn to convert it, and it says the same exact thing like Quicktime.

But when I play it with VLC it works fine ...

What do you guys reckon its from ?

Missing any good codecs ??
24" Aluminum iMac (2.93 GHz, 4 GBs RAM, 650Gbs HD, nVidia GeForce GT 120)
iPhone 5 (16 GB) White
iPod Nano (6th Gen 8GB)

Use Handbrake.

Have you got Perian installed?
If not, do so and try again with QT Player.

Also MPEG Streamclip is a good transcoding application, but it is more complicated than Handbrake, which offers presets for the iPhone.
