    QuickTime should be able to play .avi files, I think.

    I think iTunes uses MPEG-4.

    alright well i just wanted my movies in itunes so i could put them on ipod which supports only a few formats. I ended up finding an excellent program to convert files to support itunes and ipod requirements and also imports the movie once its done directly to itunes which is nice. If anyone is wondering its called iSquint and its unlike many other converters as its Free, yay!

    i use either Xilisoft video converter ultimate or Allok video to MP4 converter, both have iphone or ipod conversion settings and are really easy to use (just choose video and audio quality, screen size and away you go) although for some reason, lately, Xilisoft has been giving me the best quality where as before they were about the same (allok was usually quicker to encode movies though).
