How to play AVI movies on iPhone 5?
Yesterday, iPhone 5 was officially released. When carefully read its specs of brand new iPhone 5, you will find that there isn't any improvement in the supported file formats list. Take AVI as an example, it remains the support of Motion JPEG(M-JPEG) up to 35Mbps, 1280 by 720 pixels, 30 frames per second, audio in ulaw, PCM stereo audio in .avi file format. The Motion JPEG is only one type of AVI compression. Beside it, AVI can be encoded with other codecs like XviD/DivX. So if you try to play these AVI files rather than in MJPEG compression, you may fail in playing the AVI files on iPhone 5.
In order to make the .avi files playable on iPhone 5, you have to convert the AVI files to iPhone 5 supported file format, such as H.264 or MPEG-4. Here introduce an easy-to-operate program to you-Doremisoft iPhone 5 Video Converter for Mac, a powerful desktop software, which can transcode .avi files with any codec to iPhone 5 on Mac (Mountain Lion included). What you need is just to choose "iPhone 5"as output device, the optimized preset for iPhone 5 makes sure the seamless playback on iPhone 5.
