Thanks,
is there any way I can convert AVI files to something that iTunes will play
Winx DVD is a MacApp I use. There's one in the Mac Appstore too, don't quote me but the name is "iVL" or something of that sort. It's a media app in the overall top 50 on the mac app store

I would do this, too. I don't have experience with WinXDVD, but Handbrake is a pretty standard choice, especially if you already have video files on your Mac.

The list of profiles is pretty self-explanatory -- if you want it to play on your iPhone or iPod, you will need a converted copy in the appropriate profile (the iPhone/iPod are picky about the video resolution). The file Handbrake creates should work in iTunes and on the devices without a problem.
