Many of us have been asking "Does iTunes support AVI?". As far as we know, iTunes only support Apple produced video format like MP4, MOV, and M4V. Though the new version of iTunes adds the support for AVI, it only imports and plays AVI encoded with Motion JPEG (M-JPEG). If we try to import AVI encoded with DivX, Xvid, WMV, MPEG-1, MPEG-2 and etc to iTunes, iTunes will fail to import, let alone to play AVI in iTunes or sync AVI to Apple TV or iOS devices.
