    What for?

    You can use ffmpegx (or ffmpeg sans x, for pc's. it's free and works with tons of filetypes, it's a great app) to transcode it, although depending on what you're doing it for you could just change the extension and it might work for what you need (sometimes I do that to stream from my mac to my 360 when it doesn't want to recognize it for one reason or another) as simple as that.

    I used to have a Creative Zen that would only take certain types of avi files. The program I used that worked great was "PocketDivXEncoder". It pretty much works on any type of video file.
