I bought a DVD player for my grandmother that can also read files from a USB key. I am looking for a program that can convert MP4 files to AVI so that they can be read by the player. Does anyone know a solution that works on the Mac? I've looked at VLC but I don't see an AVI option in the transcoding functionality.

iFFmpeg does it. Albeit since avi is just a container it comes down to the codecs being supported by the DVD player.

AVItools might be worth a look as well.

mpeg streamclip: Squared 5 - MPEG Streamclip video converter for Mac and Windows
Quicktime Pro I think also can do this.
