    What is the best software (open source would be great) to convert .avi files to the format compatible on iPad and iPhone?

    Thanks in advance!

    Handbrake or MPEG Streamclip.

    MRoogle would have told you this at least several dozens of times.

    A non-free (but much easier to use) solution would be Quicktime Pro, $30 at apple.com.

    i'm not sure but wouldn't you install perian (for free) on your mac to allow quicktime to play ".avi".

    then you would import the avi into itunes as movie.

    then in itunes you would select the avi-movie and go to advanced/convert to appleTV/ipad.

    Do either of these options offer better or different quality versus the handbrake conversion?
