    Not if you want to convert to avi, xvid is the best solution. For some of the best xvid encodes go download a program called AutoGK if you have a PC, it converts to xvid with the best results

    Use Handbrake, best all-in-one converter in existence.

    Yes, it's called H.264 and is generally regarded as superior in almost every way, except for CPU use.

    HandBrake .9.4 does not output AVI or XVID.

    Will it be equal to 720P?

    I'm not sure that's a meaningful question. 720P refers to a resolution. There's 720P content that looks like crap, and 720P content that looks good.

    You asked if there was a better codec than Xvid, and I answered "H.264". That was a bit of a tease, as that's the codec that Handbrake uses.

    H.264 is one of the codecs used on Blu-Ray discs.
