can itunes play .avi's?
quicktime can with perian, so can vlc. Why do you need iTunes to?
no. but you can install Perian, open it in QuickTime Player and save as a reference file and then add the reference file to iTunes.
well i have a movie .avi movie and i wanted it on my itunes for some organizational reason, and i'll be getting an iphone and wouldnt mind having a movie on hand
^ well you didnt specify if you wanted to play it on your iPhone. use iSquint to convert the .avi to .mp4. note this will cause a loss in quality.
Get iSquint, it will convert it to an iphone compatible format.
and this is why i love this forum. thank folks
Is there any way to prevent the quality loss?
no because iPhone can only play mpeg and the .avi is a container which probably has divx or xvid video. coverting one video format to another format gives a loss in quality.
try to get a really good quality .avi and then encode it to .mp4 with high quality settings. this will result in a lower quality loss but will also take ages.
At the moment i use iSquint on the highest quality setting, but still end up sometimes with, not so much picture quality drop, but the sound track a couple of seconds out from the picture
not sure sorry. just tinker with it and try again you might get the audio back in sync.
