    You're on the wrong site to ask about AVI files. However, if you bring it into iMovie of Quicktime Pro, you can convert it to an H.264 qt file, which will shave off a lot of space.

    Macs handle AVI files just fine.

    If you get a program called isquint, it's one of the easiest programs to use. Just drop the file on and choose a quality setting. This will encode in ipod video format, which is one of the best formats. It normally encodes in mpeg-4 but there is a check box for H264 - that takes twice as long though.
