    You may have installed the DivX codec, or other specific codecs, for QuickTime in Panther and lost them during the update/clean install process.

    If you did an archive/install, then you should be able to find them in your Previous System > Library > QuickTime folder.

    Otherwise, you may have to download and install clean. DivX 5.2.1 is here.

    I think VLC is the best way to play AVI's on macs give that a try....I would also reccomend downlaoding Mplayer and Xine Player they are 2 good alternatives and are good to have on your system anyway incase VLC cannot play a certain file format...

    SHadOW ;)

    VLC can play anything, but it is kinda slow and glitchy. i will try those.

    And if you've got Xvid encoded movies, get the DivX codec, and then install the Xvid Delegate
