    xvid or divx codec required probably.

    otherwise it should be able to convert the format by simply opening the movie in a new window, then saving as the filetype of your choice

    This question has been asked and answered so-o-o-o many times already. The answer was and is to download and install the DivX QuickTime codec. You may also download and install the 3ivx QuickTime codec. If you want to convert .avi video to .mov, download DivX Doctor II. And, of course, you will get a lot of people chiming in to say that you should use download and use VLC or MPlayerOSX. It's all good.

    Yep, download the DivX codec here.

    QTPro will do the rest...

    is it true that Divx 5.2.1 isn't supported by 10.4?

    It causes the display of double Help menus. And that's just intolerable when I'm watching porn.

    do you need to have quicktime pro to do this? or will it work fine with standard quicktime. if i need to i will buy pro, if i can do avi's then i might as well be able to view 'em full screen....one question about pro, can you cut segments frrom internet movies and ssave them to your HD? if so then i'm DEFINITELY buying it

    yea only quicktime pro has the ability to convert to different file formats. and no you can't cut and save parts of streaming movies. however anything you can download and save to your desktop typically can be edited that way. but streaming stuff no and protected stuff no.

    Every Mac ships with iMovie. You can edit your segments there.
