Re: Converting AVI to MP4

Assuming the codec is H.264 I would remux the footage, i.e. copy the video stream without re-encoding.

For instance:

ffmpeg -i drone.avi -c:v copy drone.mp4

You might need additional audio options to convert or map multiple channels, the same with the metadata.

Re: Converting AVI to MP4

For doing exactly what you want to do on PC I use a free utility called Avidemux 64. It has a very simple easy to use GUI and can re-mux many different files types both video and audio to a wide range of wrappers including .MP4. The current version is 2.7.1 and can be found here.

https://sourceforge.net/projects/avidemux/

All you have to do is select "copy" for the video and audio content of your incoming files and then select MP4 for your output files. Just done an 5.5 minute DJI file and it took all of ten seconds to re-wrap the file to MP4.

See the attached image to give you an idea.
