Hey everyone...I just had a question because I am not sure how to convert video files into a format the Mac can read. I already have VLC, which is a wonderful program, but it still doesn't play XVid files. And I'm pretty sure there is no XVid program for the Mac, but if there is, please let me know the URL because I have tried searching for them. I also have Quicktime Pro 7, and I thought there was a way using that app. to convert files into a different format, but apparently there is not, or I am not seeing how to do it. I simply want to convert the XVid files into an AVI file. If anyone knows how to do this, please let me know! It's driving me nuts!

download the xvid codec. drop it into the appropriate folder (sorry, i can't recall where exactly the codec gets placed) and relaunch VLC.
