Mov to Avi - converts apple mov video file to Microsoft Avi format online. Mov is a computer file format
used natively by the apple quicktime framework. Mov uses a multimedia container that can store both audio and video information along with subtitles and track information.
Avi or audio video interleave on the other hand is a audio video file format developed by Microsoft for its media player application.
The vital difference between the two is the support for the popular lossy H.264 codec that is supported by mov but not by avi.
Avi was quite popular in their initial days but microsoft slowly moved to their more advanced wmv file format and abandoned the development of Avi.
Avi also lacks some of the advanced features, like B-frames that are available in all modern media containers and absent in avi.

like quicktime would be needed to play the movie. Therefore, you can use our application to convert the apple mov file to avi format.
