    Hey,
    I've been converting some movies to mp4's for video ipod. I was wondering if there is any way to convert an XviD AVI to an mp4 (non - h264). I've tried doing the conversion in FFMpegX but I get an error about an unreadable file when I try to open it in quicktime.

    Any ideas?
    thanks

    It might be possible just to remux... I'm not farmiliar with the GUI for ffmpegX, but if you use the command line version here is an example.

    ffmpeg -i input.avi -vcodec copy -vtag mp4v -acodec copy -f mov output.mov

    If the video is iPod compliant, but the audio is mp3...

    ffmpeg -i input.avi -vcodec copy -vtag mp4v -acodec aac -ab 128 -f mov output.mov

    Good luck
