    i want to transfer a video to my daughter's innotab. needs to be avi file i think.

    "use handbrake" but there is only two options. I thought i had found the answer with this thread . . . . "So, I used to be able to convert my ripped dvd files into .avi files with Handbrake. That option no longer exists. The only output options I have are .mp4 and .mkv. What gives!?!?!? "

    but he was told that this already existed on

    but that doesn't answer the question apart from "About .avi support: the web site for the software is your friend."

    I downloaded smart converter; but options on devises not fie formats

    what am i missing?

    Avi is a container. Is there a specific codec requirement? Otherwise, maybe the hardware can read modern codecs. Try simply renaming your mp4 to avi.

    Try MPEG Streamclip. It can export to AVI. Don't forget to install Perian before.
