How to Convert and Import AVI to iTunes on Mac/Windows PC

Why I failed to import AVI videos to iTunes?

If you attempt to import your AVI files to iTunes (iTunes 12.1), and possibly sync them to your iPhone/iPad/iPod touch later, you are not going to get what you want. This is due to iTunes' incompatibility with AVI files. Any videos you try to add to iTunes need to be encoded with H.264 and wrapped up in MP4, MOV or M4V file container. In one word, AVI video files are not supported by iTunes. Fortunately, you simply need an AVI to iTunes Converter to convert AVI video to iTunes-friendly format.
