No video recompression, no quality loss, fast operation (5-20x realtime), no Quicktime needed.
MP4Cam2AVI supports *.MP4, *.MOV, and *.AVI input (MPEG-4 AVI's from Casio P505/Z750 cameras are not DivX-compatible). MJPEG *.MOV's from photo cameras are supported as well.
MP4Cam2AVI doesn't recompress video, that means no quality loss and fast operation (5-20x realtime, depending on audio settings). Audio can be stored in source format, or converted to MP3 (best for DVD-MPEG4 players) or PCM (best for editing).
Unlike many converting apps, MP4Cam2AVI doesn't require QuickTime or any codecs to work, it performs all the job itself.
Features of MP4Cam2AVI 2.9
With MP4Cam2AVI, you can:
- Convert and join MPEG-4 ASP clips from your camera to a single DivX-compatible MPEG-4 movie to watch on PC or DVD-MPEG4 player, preserving original video quality;
- Batch convert many clips to edit with any avi editing app;
- Convert *.MP4 (MPEG4 ASP) movie from Nero Recode to DivX-compatible AVI format for DVD-MPEG4 player;
- Convert MJPEG MOV's from photo camera do DivX-compatible MPEG-4 AVI in one click;
- Convert H.264 (MPEG-4 AVC) *.MP4/*.MOV clips to H.264 AVI, editable with VirtualDub and playable with Windows Media Player (H.264 VfW codec needed, i.e. last FFDShow);
- Watch MPEG-4 ASP/AVC/MJPEG clips before conversion using internal preview;
- Arrange clips using simple timeline, perform basic trim operations;
- Correct audio/video lag in some cameras like Minolta A200
- Make sound softer with configurable lowpass filter (great for Sanyo Xacti C1)
From version 2.70 MP4Cam2AVI supports MPEG-4 AVC (H.264) video from new H.264 cameras like Sanyo CG65 and Casio EX-V7.
MP4Cam2AVI converts *.3GP clips from mobile phones, but with no audio (no AMR audio support yet). Target avi's will have H.263 video, so, you should install H.263 codec to view or edit them.

This program has a straightforward and easy to use interface. It does exactly what it says it will do. It superbly and rapidly converts .mov files shot with my Pentax Optio W10 to .avi files. Easy to download and install, and easy to use... and free!

I have a Casio Exilim EX S880, a new model. It stores video in MOV files but encodes with MPEG4-AVC codec and the audio is detected as being IMA ADPCM, according to this software. My goal was to be able to send short clips of video to friends, family, or post to websites.
The camera's MOV files will not play properly in any media player on the planet that I have encountered -except- VLC. Either the video is bad, audio is bad, or both. Every player except VLC. I need to make files playable in a player everybody has.
MP4Cam2AVI accepted my MOV file and produced an AVI output. This file, if it would play at all, displayed a weird, shattered still image, partially negative, partially solarized and basically unrecognizable, with a few pixels changing sporadically at first, then none at all. The audio was a hideous hammering wash of digital noise, about two shots per second, absolutely unlistenable.
I tried VLC, Windows Media Player 11, Quicktime 7, and Media Player Classic.
As far as my new camera is concerned, this program makes things far worse and is not usable for the intended purpose.
It makes MPEG-4 camera clips DivX/XviD compatible and playable with any DVD-MPEG4 player like regular MPEG-4 movie.
