    I'm looking for a way to change the container for MKV, FLV, and AVI video to MP4 (without re-encoding), since none of the aforementioned 3 are compatible with Smart Cutter (whereas MP4 is).

  2. FFmpeg can be used to remux these containers to mp4 assuming the audio&video formats used in those containers are mp4 compatible.
    Code:
    ./ffmpeg -i <path to input file> -codec copy <path to output file with .mp4 extension>

    Compatibility is the iusue here, isn't it? .mp4 is just a container, not a format. For example there's a list of smart cutter compatible opfrmats here and I don;t see the type of format you;d see in .avi files (ASP) there:

    Well, the format for the AVI container files is H.264, AAC (same with the MKV and FLV).
