We convert AVI to MOV because we have experiences that after we have loaded AVI file on our Mac, we can’t really open it with simple QuickTime player or even iMovie. Sometimes, we get the chance to open the file but not actually opened because what only appears is a black, empty video. Let us accept that AVI is not really as good as MOV and most of the time, AVI files aren’t compatible with QuickTime player. For Mac, we can use the Mac AVI converter too to convert AVI to MOV.
Audio Video Interleave or AVI and Apple’s QuickTime Movie or MOV are both multimedia container formats for videos with sounds. When we are doing the conversion from different file format to another, the container must be opened so that the individual data streams can be transcoded. The advantage of converting AVI to MOV is that multiple types of audio streams and also video streams can be made in the entire conversion process.
