MVI is a rare format, and external programs on PCs and Macs can’t play these files. So if you want to replay MVI files on other media devices, the first thing you should do is to convert them to a format playable by your media devices, such as AVI, WMV, MOV, MP4, MPEG, DVD, etc.

Although Canon PowerShot camera videos are in AVI format, Canon PowerShot camera users usually have problem of importing such MVI files to Windows Movie Maker, iMovie for edit and transfer the Canon PowerShot to iPad, iPod, PSP, PS3, Xbox and other portable devices for enjoy on the go. It is because AVI (Audio Video Interleave) is a multimedia container format that may contains different audio and video codec that Windows Movie Maker, iMovie and other application such as Microsoft PowerPoint cannot recognize.
