This is very easy and a no brainer, MPEG Streamclip, it's free. Read the following thread where I talk about it: https://www.avsforum.com/avs-vb/showt...ght=streamclip
BTW, you should also try installing the free Flip4MAC codec. Also go to the Apple forums where there's lot's more info in this.

If you want hardware accelerated (i.e. faster) encoding, the Turbo.264 HD works well. This newer version of the Turboo.264 adds HD encoding, but it will also happily encode SD video.

Actually, you can try to use some online converters, such as Zamzar, Convertio. They are free and easy to use. However, if your AVI files are large and you want to use offline video converter, you can try Joyoshare Video Converter.
