If it happened that all your AVI files come across problems like they cannot be played by the digital player, or they can be played but you cannot adjust the playback progress, or you cannot see the pictures but only hear the sound and etc. Then, may be you have to set the files AVI to MJPEG codec or other specific codec, such as MPEG-1, MPEG-2, WMV1, WMV2, H.263, H.263p, or H.264/MPEG-4 AC.

This article will not only take MJPEG for example and show you how to set AVI to MJPEG codec (the way you learned can also be applied to AVI to any codes that AVI adopted) but will also explain why digital players that promised to support AVI files actually do not.

I think it would be necessary to know what AVI and MJPEG are, what characters they have and then you might be able to figure out why by yourself.

What is AVI?

AVI is a popular video format which can be seen in games or educational software lead-ins and of course a lot of videos from social networks like YouTube and films.

According to Wikipedia, AVI, Audio Video Interleaved (also Audio Video Interleave), is a multimedia container format introduced by Microsoft in November 1992 as part of its Video for Windows software. AVI files can contain both audio and video data in a file container that allows synchronous audio-with-video playback.

AVI is kind like a box and in this box , audio/visual data would be stored in virtually any compression schemes (video codec), including Full Frame (Uncompressed), Intel Real Time (Indeo), Cinepak, , Editable MPEG, VDOWave, ClearVideo/RealVideo, QPEG, and MPEG-4 Video MPEG-1, MPEG-2, WMV1, WMV2, H.263, H.263p, H.264/MPEG-4 AC, or as DiveX and Xvid.

Well, this cause a problem: there is no standard codec for it, thus some digital player claim to support AVI files fail to play it fluently, because the fact is that what they really mean is it can support AVI files of certain video codec.

What is MJPEG?

Again, let see how Wikipedia defines it: MJPEG, or Motion JPEG or M-JPEG, full name Motion Joint Photographic Experts Group, is a video compression format originally developed for multimedia PC applications.

MJPEG is simple to implement because it uses a mature compression standard (JPG) with well-developed libraries, and it's an intraframe method of compression.

M-JPEG standard emerged from a market-adoption process rather than a standards body, so it enjoys broad client support - most major web browsers and players provide native support and plug-ins are available for the rest.

Now, let's take Bigasoft Total Video Converter Mac version for example to learn how to set AVI to MJPEG standard, also this may be applied to AVI to Intel Real Time (Indeo), Cinepak, ,Editable MPEG, VDOWave, ClearVideo / RealVideo, QPEG, and MPEG-4 Video MPEG-1, MPEG-2, WMV1, WMV2, H.263, H.263p, H.264/MPEG-4 AC, or as DiveX and Xvid.
