libx264 is not always available and not that much common (it requires
special permissions), and the avi to mp4 is IMO not that much common: it's
not going to improve quality, while mp4 to avi has the benefit of creating
videos compatible with old devices, which sounds like a more common use

I also avoided avi to mkv because IIRC there are sometimes issue that
require you to do something like -fflags +genpts.
