Gonna have to "batch render" your animation to an image sequence, then bring that image sequence into a program like "VirtualDub", "MPEG Streamclip", or "AVISynth" to convert it into an mp4 format. Since that's all covered elsewhere, just check this link.

Yes first you have to batch render your animation, then you have to import the images to create a mov file or another file if you need. there is lots of applications that could do this FF check which comes with maya but I think will only save to .mov file, Quicktime pro and import using image sequence and After effects will do it too, probably loads more but their what I use.

Thank you all for the reply, the video is really a great help.
The problem i am facing while following the video is that when i am opening the Rendered files from Maya in VirtualDub, it is not automatically loading all the linked segments although the option to do this is checked! There is only one image and hence the time slider is deactivated.
What is wrong and should i be doing ?
