How to convert MP4 to AVI on Mac?

August 27 2015 , Written by Bonnie

Description: How to transcode MP4 to AVI on Mac? This article will show you two effective methods.

As we know, MP4 is a multimedia container format most commonly applied to store digital video and audio streams, especially those defined by MPEG, but also used to reserve other data such as subtitles and still images. 

AVI (Audio Video Interleave) is the most common format for audio/video data on computers. The Microsoft AVI file format is a Resource Interchange File Format file specification used to capture, edit, and play back audio-video sequences. It can store video data that might be encoded with various codecs. it brings you a better video quality and is supported by a wide range of media players and devices. It is the most popular video format supported by all media players. Unlike MP4 it doesn't require any additional codecs or software. So it's not strange that many Mac users choose AVI as the destination format.

Then how to convert MP4 to AVI?

Don’ worry, we offer you two good methods to convert MP4 to AVI on Mac.

Method 1.Convert MP4 to AVI with free Handbrake on Mac


How to Convert MP4 to AVI with Handbrake on Mac with Handbrake 0.9.2? 

Step 1: After download and install Handbrake for Mac, open Handbrake.

Step 2: On the "Source" field, click the "Browse" button and choose the MP4 video file you want to convert to AVI file format from a new window popped up in front of the Handbrake interface.

Step 3: On "Destination" portion of the Handbrake program window, select the output path where you want to save your new AVI file by clicking the "Browse" button.

Step 4: Move your mouse to the "Output Settings" field, and choose Xvid as the output video encoder from the "Encoder".

Step 5: Now simply click "Start" button at the very top of the main Handbrake window to convert MP4 video file to AVI format. If you have multiple MP4 videos to convert, just click "Add to Queue" button to queue and start task from the "Encode Queue" dialog.

Handbrake is a versatile, free tool for ripping and converting video on your Mac. This Mac free video converter could convert between practically any type of video source for users to better manage your video library and convert videos. However, you should know that Handbrake is relatively weak in stability and sometimes the process may break for some reason during the video conversion and the video quality therefore may be lower than that encoded with Xvid. Besides, it updates slower, not Sync. Only Handbrake 0.9.2 can supports batch conversion.

If you want to quickly convert to good quality, to turn into more formats, you need a powerful tool, which is the second method.

Does the PS Vita Support MP4 Files?

August 26 2015 , Written by Bonnie Published on #mp4 to ps vita

Description: In order to successfully play various MP4 files on PS Vita, a widely used solution is to  be recommended.

Today, handheld game consoles highly popular with young people, PS Vita is one of them. As a great portable entertainment device, not only play a variety of games, but also play videos. Before a trip or a business trip, you will think of coping some MP4 videos to PS Vita for playing, which is so convenient. But when you copy MP4 videos to PS Vita, PS Vita sometimes displayed: “ This file is not compatible with the system” . Why can’t play MP4 videos to PS Vita? Keep reading.

Before transfering MP4 video to PS Vita, you might have read through the PS Vita manuals and found that you should get your video into PS Vita video formats as below:

  • MPEG-4 Simple Profile Level 6, Maximum 1280 x 720 pixels, AAC
  • H.264/MPEG-4 AVC Baseline/Main/High Profile Level 4.0, Maximum 1080p, AAC

Basically a video file, or more specifically its container, can contain numerous variations of what would-be the video. Usually MP4 files are in H.264 codec, which is good, but the Vita only supports up to Level 4.0 High (a set of guidelines for playing back the content). Anything above 4.0 High (there's also lower profiles, "Main" and "Baseline", which are supported) the Vita will not play. The easiest way to figure this out would be to use MediaInfo or open the file in your favorite media player, such as MPC-HC or VLC, and viewing the file information/metadata. 10-bit content is also another profile (High 10), like High, which is not compatible. This can be dealt with during the encoding process.


As for encoding the content, generally any program that has a preset profile will work.. However, if you dig deep you should find options to select the level and profile of the encode. It's also worth mentioning on the manual page that it says AAC, which is the audio codec. Generally you should be targeting this anyway in your encoder.

Therefore, if the MP4 video is not encoded with PS Vita compatible codec which is mentioned above, we will fail to stream MP4 to PS Vita even if successfully copied MP4 to PS Vita. In that case, we need to encode videos to PS Vita supported format MP4 like MPEG-4 /H.264 MP4. which is the easiest way.

As for an encoder, I suggest Pavtube Video Converter. It's a simple, safe, clean and professional PS Vita video converter for encoding and decoding all video formats on Windows, including Windows 10, 8.1, 8, 7, XP ,etc. We can use it to encode any MP4 video to PS Vita supported MP4 with best quality within 3 simple steps. The advanced encoding technology accelerates its conversion speed to great extent. Besides, this professional PS Vita Video Converter has a powerful video edit function like cropping, trimming, adding watermark, etc. (Mac version - Pavtube Video Converter for Mac
