mechanisms avi does not play on windows media player

I would like to share an avi created in mechanisms with the avi output in animation. Apparently it will not play in windows media player (it works with other tools, vlc for example).

 

Is there a proper conversion to make this work, ffmpeg for example.

Re: mechanisms avi does not play on windows media player

The command to properly convert the avi for windows is (using ffmpeg and a cygwin shell)

 

for i in *.avi; do ffmpeg -r 30 -i "$i" -codec:v mpeg4 -flags:v +qscale -global_quality:v 0 -codec:a libmp3lame "${i%.avi}.mp4"; done

 

Note: This will convert all the avi's in the current directory.
