Play avi divx on iPod Touch or iPhone

By | November 13, 2008

To play .avi videos or files on your iPod Touch or iPhone, you must first change the file format from AVI to MP4 (MPEG-4) using programs such as VisualHub or iSquint.

VisualHub produces the best quality results and is drag-and-drop easy to use.  One fault with VisualHub is that it doesn’t extract and convert multiple TV episodes (or “titles”) from a single DVD or ISO file; It converts only the last “title” from a multi-episode disk or image file.  For multi-title conversion use Handbrake or MacTheRipper.

iSquint produces lower quality results, but is even simpler to use than VisualHub, with less output possibilities and adjustments.  For basic conversion of video files to various iPod formats or iPhone, this will work.

    Thanks for the insight on these two pieces of software. I always have the hardest time finding a good program that will change one format into another. Is there anything you know of that more then just one or two at a time. Thanks.

    I have been using VisualHub for quite some time. I find it to be great as it gets the job done quickly and easily. It converts any video format in three easy steps. As far as I am concerned the quality is great.
