Software for converting is fairly expensive.
You should try MainActor. It allows converting between avi, qt, mpeg and it is available as shareware. www.mainconcept.com
Another product is Adobe Premiere.

purchase quicktime pro from apple for $30.  You will be able to import the mile into MoviePlayer and save it in whatever format you desire.
