The Necessity of Converting AVI to MOV

October 31, 2011 | Author: | Posted in Computers and Technology

I have recently graduated from Engineering Faculty. My graduation party was really great and as the precious moments in our life are worthy to be remembered, I have made some DVD copies to share them among my family members and my friends. Indeed, the party video was in AVI format. Unfortunately, as the technology grows up, we face more issues in opening our videos. Some of my friends were able to watch the DVD successfully on their Mac by using Quick Time, but the others could hear the sound only on the Quick Time. If you are experiencing the same problem, probably it’s high time that you learn to convert video files, specifically convert AVI to MOV.

Why can some AVI videos be played on Quick Time but the others are not?

AVI is a video container. Its capability of storing both Audio and Video in the same file allows playback in a smooth way. The best is that AVI is compatible with various operating systems such as MAC, Windows, UNIX and Linux. Developing so many AVI codecs, arises issues when it comes to the point of playing AVI videos. In all likelihoods, my friends who are able to watch my party AVI video on Quick Time are having the required codec installed in the quick time folder. And those who were able to hear the sound only already have the required audio codec but they have to download the video codec to watch the party without any problem.

Simply, all AVI files have the same extension, but certainly, they are different completely in the terms of codec used to develop them. Briefly, playing AVI videos in a compatible player depend on whether the player enhances the codec of the targeted AVI video or not.

Is it necessary to convert AVI files to MOV?

Mov format is the native Quick Time format. If you have videos in MOV format, you can play them with Quick Time with no need for any codec. That is it, I decided to convert my graduation party video (AVI) to MOV video. In this way, I can guarantee that all my friends will watch my graduation party on their Mac and using the Quick Time successfully without any issue.
