.avi or .mov or .mp4 or .m4v etc etc - Are no Video-Codec - but a Container and can hold just about anything.
Open the file with QuickTime-player and then open Inspector [cmd+I] and read
• Video Format/Codec: nnnnnnnnnnnn
• frames per sec : yyyyyyyyyy
What does they say ?
From - .avi is a container and there is no general approach
• You can try to use MPEG-Streamclip to convert some of the AVI files so that QuickTime can play them
in my .avi there was
iv50 - old codec on window platform.
• Open on a PC-Window with Microsoft Movie Maker.
• Put into TimeLine
• Save on ” this Computer” as .wmv
move over to Mac and open with QuickTime Pro and save as StreamingDV
(if Flip4Mac is payed then no Waterstamp and time limit)
Open in FinalCut Pro as is = No Waterstamp or time limit.
But it did never result in good quality.
