The AVI file type (only a container and not a FINAL video format) is by far the oldest used container till today. Video files that are named under the .avi extension are still very popular. However, the file type might not be imported or playable on portable devices such as your smartphone or tablet. Hence, there is such need to convert AVI to MPEG4. In general, an AVI video file can be played on mostly Windows-based application or well-suited for large screen.
In terms of quality, the AVI video files tend to have the upper hand over an MPEG4. That is also why an AVI video file sizes are normally larger than the MPEG4. Having said that, an MPEG4 video file are commonly used for playback on smaller screens, therefore, the quality of video after compression is not a huge concern. If you ever try to compress (convert both containers as well as codec) an AVI video file to the exact same file size as the MPEG4, then you might notice that the quality is not as good.

Why MPEG Precedes AVI
The MPEG4 is not only a container but it also contains the final output, hence considered as the final video format. It is the more preferred file format for transferring to/from portable devices from our computers. It is also worth mentioning that the MPEG4 video quality might not be the best or recommended file type for playback on large screens such as TVs because the smaller file size would equally mean lower settings in parallel.
Note: Remember that it’s only a container, actual quality and compressed file size depends on the codec and other settings.
