Converting mov to avi

A friend with an iphone sent me a .mov file today – I really don’t like that format for video so of course I wanted to convert it to a nicer .avi file and this couldn’t be simpler with [ffmpeg]:

ffmpeg -i input.mov -aspect ’16:9′ -sameq -vcodec libxvid output.avi

– this maintains the aspect ratio (I’m using 16:9 as that is what the file was) and uses the same quality as the input.
