How to convert & watch AVI movies on PS Vita effectively?

How to convert AVI to PS Vita for watching? So I just got this new Sony PlayStation Vita and I love it. The question is I would like to transfer and get some of my movies files onto it for playback on my trip. And most of my video files are in AVI (or Divx/Xvid) format. Does PS Vita play AVI files actually? I know PSP couldn't but not sure the latest console from Sony can play the most popular video format around. Thanks for the help.


As to the Sony PlayStation Vita, sorry, actually it still only supports MP4. For detailed PS Vita compatible media file formats, you may check out its manual or specs. Types of files you can watch with the PS Vita Videos application:
* MPEG-4 Simple Profile Level 3, Maximum 320 x 240 pixels, AAC
* H.264/MPEG-4 AVC Baseline/High/Main Profile Level 3.1, Maximum 720p, AAC
