    I have a Mac Book Pro and am looking for a program that will convert my avi files into a format that can play on both my DVD player and My xbox 360.

    I would Rather not have to pay anything but if it is needed its not a problem.

    If anyone could help I'd appreciate it, thanks.

    Download something called Connect360...you may need to search for a full version or buy it, either way itll allow you to stream avis and mp3s to your xbox just like windows connect does it.

    Install Perian, then use iDVD. That's what I use, and it's worked for all .avi files I've tried. I don't have an XBox, so I can't comment on what it can and can't play, but as long as it can play standard video DVDs, you should be good to go.

    Roxio Toast can do that, though its not a free program. Also keep in mind that you will lose quality from the transcoding process, and it will take a few hours for each movie.

    Methinks you could do it with handbrake, which is free.
