not sure where i should post this.....

 

i am looking into buying a pair of glasses that i can wear with a built in video camera,

 

not to use as a spy gadget, its just more comfortable walking around with glasses then holding my phone or camera to record,

 

most of these items record in AVI format, just wondering what the difference is between that and say MP4 which is what my camera and phone do, i realize i can convert the AVI to whatever i want, but im wondering if AVI would be less quality picture??

avi files can be played perfectly on any windows version with the windows media player (if you cannot play your ai file then you may need the necessary video codecs) 

 

k-lite video codec pack

in general avi video size is quite large especially the uncompress avi

good morning dear  mikey11

 

avi video format have lesser compression than mp4 

 

mp4 is a much newer video format that use compression too but you do not have to worry at all if you convert avi to mp4 unless your a professional

 

in short avi require a lot of space compared to mp4

 

you can use also this online video converter to convert your videos
